There are certain colors that you seem to only see in the summertime in New England, and the colors of the clouds at sunset are a perfect example. Incredible pastels can light up the sky when the sun rises or sets. On this particular night, the sunset I was hoping for didn’t materialize at my original destination. So I decided to jump back in the car and head to the salt marsh house in Essex to see if the post-sunset sky would have anything to offer. And as you can see, it certainly did. The 500+ mosquitos and gnats per square inch was a steep price to pay for this shot, but definitely worth it.
