Purple Skies over Hoboken!

Crazy purple skies over Hoboken this week

Caught these mesmerizing purple skies over Elysian Park a few days ago.

First, we noticed how the temporary LED lamps that PSE&G set up after Hurricane Sandy illuminated the freshly sprouting trees in the park. It provided a sharp contrast to the cloudy sky as the sun was setting.

However, I noticed how the clouds were becoming purple, and I busted out the camera I had on me. At one point the sky was surreal!

None of these pictures were post-processed or altered, other than removing a little grain.

Amazing color, right?
