Lens-Artists Weekly Photo Challenge #19: Magical Light

During my recent trip to Portland, Oregon to see my granddaughter, I flew up from southern California. It was in the early evening and I anticipated to see the sunset. I booked a window seat looking toward west. It was during summer when the day was long, and the sun went down by 9:00 p.m. I was not disappointed because I saw the gorgeous sunset and the horizon above the clouds was lit up with bright orange light.

By 9:15 p.m. the sun almost went down completely. The orange light was diminishing.

The plane landed at 9:30 p.m. the sky was completely ultramarine blue.

As I looked up into the sky at 9:36 p.m. the moon radiated the brightest light. I was standing on the ground of the airport before exiting to the terminal, holding the camera still to get the image of the moon.

I was happy to capture the dramatic change of the magical light within half an hour of sunset.
