After dinner whiskey hour at El Casa Móvil De Pennington, under pink/deepening blue New Mexico skies shortly after sunset. This time of day is magical, in that there is a diffused pink glow in the sky about a half hour after sunset that is reminiscent of a salmon's belly... among other things. And by that I mean there's pink... and then there's PINK.
It takes quite a while for this celestial pink to fade to deepening shades of blue, and even longer for those shades of blue to fade to black. The greatest thing about the changing evening sky in these parts is watching the first and brightest of the stars emerge... and if you stay out long enough you'll be rewarded by seeing more stars than you ever thought possible.
