Light into dark

A changing sky decorated my drive to Bar Harbor.

I left home in daylight under a sky filled with gray clouds. A swath trees wearing bright yellow and orange leaves jumped out at me as I passed through the edge of New Hampshire. Just a little later the road was lined with bare branched trees and evergreens. Later still the colors re-emerged.

Gray skies cleared to blue with high flung white wisps of clouds. And then... the setting sun painted the underside of the clouds with bright pink. Within 15 minutes the color was gone, the sky dark.
