Watermelon Mountain Time

Watermelon Mountain Time

The Sandia Mountain turns a brilliant pink color and the Rio Grande a vibrant purple at sunset. This is due to the low angle of the sun with its light being separated into rainbow colors by the atmosphere. The photo was taken from the "Rio Grande River" area looking east at the mountain. It was Oct 2017 so fall colors were being worn by the trees in the Bosque.
