I came up the hill to my home with my back to the East, so I didn’t get a real glimpse of what was happening behind me until I turned for the final leg of my morning jaunt. It was close to 6:30 am, just after the official start of civil twilight, and the sky was beginning to show signs that color would be blasted on the smattering of clouds in the sky. It wouldn’t last long. So I knew if I wanted to capture the scene, I needed to get home quickly, grab my camera, and drive to an easy-access location as quickly as possible. I chose the side of Vasquez Canyon Road.
