Nightrise


When the night starts rising and infiltrating the sun's skyful painting, you start pushing the drive a little harder. As this 18-wheeler goes sliding and humming down the interstate you can't tell from the side of the road if he is near the end of his journey.

I pulled off to capture the sunset. It made getting home a little later. To my way of thinking, if God spends the time to paint something like this and we don't slow down enough to appreciate it, it is a loss we can't make up.


Hope you enjoy this SkyWatch Friday photo. Go to the SkyWatch Friday site to enjoy 100's more.
