This gorgeous sunset was taken on Plum Island in the Parker River Bird Sanctuary near Newburyport, Massachusetts, in late September of 2004. It had to be one of the most amazing sunsets I've personally witnessed. Sometimes the position of the Sun and the shape, altitude and character of the clouds conspire to produce sunsets and sunrises of almost unimaginable beauty. The reflection of the gold and apricot colors, as well as a hint of plum, of the altostratus cloud deck on the water's surface makes this scene even more magical.
