Purple Sky Majesty

A little luck and rare conditions

It has been extraordinarily foggy here recently, but several people around the province have captured unique purple sky sunrises. When I took this photo I thought that I had done something wrong with my exposure or had accidentally adjusted my white balance. Apparently this is a documented phenomena and is due to specific wave lengths of light being either absorbed or diffracted by the low cloud cover.

Some have mentioned that this may be due to ash from the recently erupted volcano in Tonga.
