Mmmmm! Doesn’t this sky look delicious? An otherworldly hue cast itself across a deck of mammatus clouds, emanating from a weakening area of once-severe thunderstorms to the south and east. Having lost access to direct sunlight, the mammatus instead reflected deep maroon-brown tones, manifesting atmospheric reds from over the horizon, filtered through a long fetch of slightly dusty boundary-layer air. A short time exposure drank in and brought out the tones fully. On several occasions, I’ve seen this sort of coloration to post-sunset mammatus fields, but very rarely to such a sky-covering extent when there’s a good opportunity to pull off and shoot.
