Yellow, Red, Orange

And you thought the color spectrum went "red, orange, yellow?" Not tonight! On the way home from Traverse City in the car, I stopped to take these three images from the same sunset, in this order. First was yellow with the ball of the sun filtered through trees.


Just a few miles farther, I pulled off the road to catch this red alpenglow on the bare branches along the hill to the east. I've never noticed such a red effect, it's usually gold or orange.


The last hurrah was as the sun sank orange over the still-frozen end of Bear Lake- yet another few miles and minutes down the road.
