Red Sky, Meridian, Mississippi




In late November, 1982, I was on the way back to Louisiana from a trip to Tennessee. We stopped at a rest area on Interstate 20 near Meridian, Mississippi.

I had never seen such a red sky after the sun had set. I've seen some amazing ones in the years since, but none as red.

I love that one star in the upper photo.

Canon AE-1; 50mm lens; Kodachrome 64.

What a red sky! The "Ryder" truck in the background looks as though it wouldn't be out of place today.

Amazing, it is such a brilliant clear red. I have never seen any sky like this. Lucky you had your camera with you.

The first one is stunning. Not just a red sky, bout total balance of image itself actually shouting me to look at more closer.
