Crepuscular rays in colourful twilight
In August 2011 I noticed colourful twilights with purple light and venus belt in France and Germany during some days. These intense sunsets resulted from volcanic aerosols in the atmosphere.
On August 12, 2011 I could take some photos of the sunset with the purple light near the Gorges du Verdon (Provence/France). Additionally, there were beautiful crepuscular rays in the sky (photo on top).
Back in Germany I could photograph also such fantastic sunsets with crepuscular rays and anticrepuscular rays.
