Who would have thought that nature would provide such a spectacular event on a warm night in front of the Home Depot store in Saratoga Springs, NY? The vivid contrast of the orange sunset with the deep indigo clouds and hints of cobalt sky was a stunning surprise when I exited a store packed with Hallowe'en and Christmas decorations fighting for consumer interest. Just look at the sky for real decorations that are beyond human creative possibilities.
