Early this morning we had torrential rains. At dawn the rain stopped and all was still, the sky in the east was a pink-purple hue... Just above it was a band of Bright peach leading into the grey clouds to the west... In the stark light of dawn just after the rain the fall colors were so rich it was like truly seeing them for the first time. They were more than colors they were what colors aspire to be.. deep reds, oranges, greens and browns. I had to stop and gaze at the wonder of it all before returning to my work day... then the rains returned until about noon now its clear and sunny.
