The Emerald Flash?

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 26 May 2009 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Coming out of the condominium for the nightly ritual of watching the sunset on Fort Myers Beach, someone thought for certain that we were going to witness the Emerald (or Green) Flash with how orange and hazy the sky was looking. It never happened.

The 'Green Flash' is a new one on me but I see from Wiki how it might work . . beautiful wash of sunset color even without the Flash !
