This is undeniably a July sunset! The huge quantities of solar energy we have to spare this time of year powers these immense clouds. Add to the scene a silhouette of Camel’s Hump, the mountain that is visible all over Central Vermont, and it is just perfect. What a sight to see!
And for my readers who are photographers, a tip of the hat to one of my photographic mentors, John Shaw, who taught me to always stay after the sun went down—often the time for the best color—and to turn to the east to see what’s happening in that direction, again often a pleasant surprise. Thanks John!
I was out at the end of North Street at Sparrow Farm when I made this one, a great spot to see both sunset and the mountain. I decided I would use only one photograph of Camel’s Hump in my upcoming show in The Governor’s Gallery and this is it!
