What you see is pretty much what you get, here. The sunset was really that intense. It was truly amazing.

Actually -- it's not after the rain. It's really a sunshine before the rain! This is the sunset before the hurricane came in (well, between the bands.)

It was actually a complete fizzle of a hurricane here. We're only about 45 minutes from the Virginia coast, and we had .2" of rain. Not that I wanted a hurricane, but a little rain would have been nice. :D

The hot color works for the DPC voters I see. I like this too, for composition as well as the strong color. Congrats on your new ribbon!
