My Street, Looking West



I carry my camera with me to work on most days. If work gets to be too stressful, I might leave during lunch or in mid afternoon and go to the beach or to a park to walk and decompress a little bit.

Most days I my camera just stays in my trunk all day and I don't take it out until I get home for the evening.

This past Tuesday, I got home about the time of sunset, and as I was driving home I kept stealing glances at the beautiful late evening sky. When I pulled onto our street, heading west, the first photo is what the sky looked like.

When I pulled into and parked in our driveway I got out and got my camera out of the trunk, took a couple of steps into the street and took these photos.

I loved the two portions of the clouds that are glowing orange from the low sun that was still casting it's orangey rays on these far away and high clouds.

Beautiful. A great way to end the work day.
