The rolling hills of the Palouse in Washington can be seen for miles and miles. The week before I arrived in the region I pre-scouted and watched the weather reports. And, I noticed that the forecast called for clear skies and few, if any clouds. With that in mind, I devised a Plan B to go into effect.and preconceaved an image. I knew cloudless skies produced a pink and blue sky called the earth’s shadow and the belt of venus. This occurs as the sun passes the horizon and light is reflecting in the atmosphere as a rosy pinkish arch visible long after sunset. This backscattering of refracted sunlight is caused by fine dust particles high up in the atmosphere. I was especially fortunate because of the massive amounts of dust in the air that week. In the end, I turned lemons into lemonade.
