Driving the Sun Down

more sky shots and moreskies (oh and if you click on the last few pictures. they are bigger and better)

On a recent visit to see my Father

in Ohio (maybe being from Ohio is why I have such an affinity for fiery/smoky factory photos)

my sister and I seemed to be following the sunset home

with each turn it was a different view

( I thought I had missed the best of it)
she was driving (I was snapping)

around another bend it was not disappointing

The headlights reminded me of wild animals looking out of the brush

then we stopped on the road and took these two

I have learned w/ the sunset it won't wait for me. I have to stop right then and enjoy it

back in the car--byee lovely Ohio sunset, thanks for posing so nicely for my camera:)

Marcia: Chasing the sunset is a wonderful pastime. I used to come home from work at sunset and always got great photos.
