The Color Magenta


I chose this image for Best Photo of 2009 because of the rosy pink color captured one warm summer evening at twilight. Can't remember ever seeing a more intense magenta color in the sky. A number of folks enjoying a walk that evening on the pedestrian bridge across the Missouri River could be heard sharing similar sentiments about the colors. It was also my first post on Omaha Lens.

There are wonderful posts from City Daily Photo bloggers around the world today sharing their favorite photos of 2009. Click here to view thumbnails for all participants .

Also view beautiful, interesting skies today at Sky Watch Friday.

There's just nothing about this photograph that I don't like. It reminds me of a sailboat.
