About Today’s Photo:
We anchored in Butterfly Bay on the northwest side of Valcour Island the other night. This is a very popular anchorage and had probably 8 boats including ours on a Wednesday night midweek. Complex cloud layers of slate blue stratus and feathery white cirrus helped to paint a lovely sunset. Smoke from wildfires in western Canada contributed a deep orange-red hue to the setting sun as it sank below the western horizon.
