On Saturday night, I had headed to Crocker Park ahead of a thunderstorm hoping for a rainbow. I arrived to find an incredible orange sky had developed as the last light of sunset lit up the clouds of an oncoming storm. I shared a tighter shot of Abbot Hall and its surrounding houses on Sunday but this was the grand view as seen from near the walkway leading to the float (not in quite yet).
While the prior shot was taken at 105mm, this one was at 27mm to allow me to capture the entirety of that orange sky with some really cool cloud elements in the top right corner. I had positioned myself so that Abbot Hall would be placed between the chestnut tree and granite ledge of Crocker Park. If you look closely you can see the flowers on the chestnut tree reflecting that orange glow of the sky.
