Sunset over Cincinnati, A study.


Sunset and sunrise are beautiful times to look at the sky in Ohio.  Never more so than in the spring and fall when the sun must hit the atmosphere at exactly the right angle and everything is bathed in a clear golden orange light with streaks of reds and pinks and oranges.  In southern OH, it's not big sky like you'd see when the land flattens out over glacier till.  Instead, the horizon is interrupted by trees and hills and dips and divots.  It's still beautiful though.  And, when the sunset if framed by storm clouds it's exquisite.

If you were outside last Sunday night, after the storm passed through, you saw a peach sky framed by blue grey storm clouds at dusk.  It was riveting.
