A Surprise View


Approaching-CC

This one might be a stretch for a sunset - it was about 8pm, so the sun was technically on it's downward decent...

Anyway, this was the view we had as we neared the small and rather quaint town where my in-laws live. I took this out the dirty car window, going 70mph. It was a pleasant surprise to see this shot when I brought it up on my computer. I love the silhouette of the silo and the one lone bird sitting on the power lines, as well as the subtle rays of sunlight.

    PLANETS HURTLING THROUGH THE SKY

    Planets hurtling through the sky,
    Can you tell me one thing: Why
    Are you intent on fleeing
    Far from human sight and seeing?
