Skywatch, New Mexico Twilight Blue


If this sky were a paint color, I would call it New Mexico Twilight Blue.


Now excuse us please as we resume our normal activities.





To see what color the sky is around the world this week, check out the links on the Skywatch home page.

  5. I spent a college semester in Namibia- some of the most amazing sunsets I saw had blues like this. The most rich, bold blues; often paired with oranges. I thought to myself- more then once- that if you hadnt witnessed it, you would never believe the sky could look like that!

  6. I've only seen pictures, but the sky always looks so incredible out there, maybe one day ...
    Your pictures really make me long for a second donkey, the horses just want play with him like this, but it doesn't stop him from trying.

  12. Such a vivid blue. I just drove through your wonderful state last weekend on my way to and from AZ to visit mom. I have always loved NM, spent time in Taos, Santa Fe and Cerrillos. At least I live closer than Ohio these days (Kansas now)!
