After the Storm

There’s this magical time.  I’ve only experienced it in Philadelphia, although that might just be the only place I noticed it.  It happens after a strong, humidity – breaking storm; the kind of storm that you wait days for.  

At sunset on those days, just around 8pm, the sun begins to set.  It must be some trick of the clouds, the way the light of the setting sun refracts through them.  But it turns the world amber.  It turns the sky yellow.  

It’s magic to me.  It’s one of those events that a camera can’t truly show.
