You ever get the feeling that a sunset was waiting for you to get your camera ready?
Perhaps I should explain.
I was driving home the other day and I saw this cloud forming in the distance -- it did not look like it had enough energy to produce a thunderstorm and the sun was beginning to plan its exit strategy. That would zap it of any energy it had hoped to gather up into a storm.
So, I am driving along toward this cloud and the sun is going lower and lower. I am wondering if there is a place I can pull over and shoot it before it vanishes into the wrong angle, a lack of sunrays, darkness, or a million other things that can go wrong with a sundown shot.
As I am exiting the Earhart Expressway and looking for a quick pull off. The traffic has me hemmed in. I turned quickly onto a feeder street and pulled into a parking lot to grab my camera. As I am getting it set, suddenly the rays start spraying from behind this monolith. I am sure he was thinking "hurry up, I can only do this for a few seconds." I snapped about dozen rapid fire shots thn the sun blew out its candles with an appreciation that it had finished the day in grandeur.
How does the song go ? "O Lord my God, when I in awesome wonder, consider all the worlds thy mighty hands have made...... then sings my soul."
