An Ephemeral Show

Sky over Gulf Shores

A couple of hours ago we became part of an ephemeral light show…As the sun crested over the horizon behind us, the clouds and all the sky around us seemed to flash from black and white into the vibrant color of sunrise…The clouds were illuminated in a warm pink-tinged orange and the spaces in between were filled with an orange glow as every particle of dust and moisture caught the fresh blast of light…Even the air in our cockpit took on the soft orange hue of sunrise as we became a part of the show over Gulf Shores, Alabama. This moment vanished as quickly as it appeared as the orange glow receded into the white light of day, but the memory of this moment lingers in a sense of harmony as we flow through the air above the waking earth.
