Sunrise colors

There’s something about the air in the Fall that makes a sunrise extra spectacular. Is it because the frequent windy days blow all the particulates somewhere else making the landscape crystal clear?   Whatever the reason, I love fall mornings for the crisp, clean feel of that air.

Sunrise and sunset colors develop their magnificent glow when the longer, red wavelengths bounce off particles among the clouds on the horizon.

Today, I am especially grateful for clean air after reading in the morning newspaper about the choking smog that has reached new highs for air pollution in China.
