P1960914 weird sunset rio jama

Manabi Province – Ecuador
As if to announce a change in our ‘rainy season’ drought, this sunset cast an eerie glow across the entire landscape.  Still muddy from early February rains, the river seemed to bounce the colors back into the sky.  That night the heavens soaked the parched earth with an inch of rainfall.  We received another inch of rain the following night.

A similar color returned to the end-of-day skies three days later.  My friends were draining the shrimp pond, and the surreal colors played well against the lone canoe.  The reflected light reminds me of a line in a song, ‘…when the streets are wet, the colors slip into the sky…’
