Sunset from Hurricane Ike

This photo is from the evening before Hurricane Ike made landfall on Galveston, so the outer cloud bands had already started passing over central Texas. I think there was also some volcanic dust in the atmosphere then, which is what added some of the purple tint-- we got a stretch of really colorful sunsets (even when there were no clouds) courtesy of an Alaskan volcano around that time.

Click on the photo able to go to the Flickr set (only 7 photos since there were a lot that were very similar to one another)
