Sunrise over Antigua

After a night of watching the volcano Volcán de Fuego erupting. I awoke to this scene over the city. The 12 plus hours of eruption created this massive pyroclastic cloud looming over the city. When the early morning light hit this cloud it turned the color to this deep purple. It was amazing to watch the colors change from purple to orange and then to blue as the sun rose.
