Firey Glow

I haven't seen a fireball sunset like this for quite some time.  I was torn between driving toward it and watching it get bigger before it set, or pulling off University Blvd. and dashing into the road to nab a shot.   You can see which option won.

Be careful with those gossamer wings of yours. Don't get too close.

This is like the best shot ever! I cannot believe how large the sun appears down there near the equator compared to up north where I am

Probably a smart move to take the photo when you did, those sunsets move fast and this was a pretty one!

Joy said...

Perfect shot! The golden glow, where the sun is and that long road - great capture.

Have a great weekend!

Many thanks for visiting Norwich Daily Photo and leaving your comment. Come visit again tomorrow!

WOW! Never seen this with the sun at the end of a road. Fantabulous shot

Janice said...

Great picture - you can tell it is near the Autumnal (or Vernal) Equinox because the sun is nearly perfectly lined up with an east/west road! Glad your timing worked out with the traffic:)
