January Desert Sunset

I was driving north on the freeway, heading home after having been out on the road all day for work…and this was the scene that wrapped-up my day.  It is somewhat diminished in splendor from what I had originally seen, as I couldn’t stop right there on the freeway to make the photo.  When I looked east, I also beheld a cloudburst, a desert curtain of rain covering that far horizon…that was rose-colored…but it was gone by the time I made it off the freeway and safely down the road where I could pull-over to make the photos.  At any rate…here it is…kinda beautiful.  Happy Friday-evening to you all…..

  2. Wow, love it. Thanks for sharing. Isn’t it frustrating having to wait to get the photo, but there was plenty of beauty left for you (and us).

  4. Trying to capture images of things seen from the highway has long been a frustration for me. When Steve and I are out together, I have been known to demand he let me out on the highway, go up to the next exit, turn around and come back and get me. But, it is best if you know for sure how far the next exit is!

    • The last time I did that, my adult traveling companion hopped into the driver’s seat and threatened to leave me behind. 🙂

  8. Utterly breathtaking. Nothing quite like the desert sunsets (unless it’s ocean sunsets 😉 ) This is particularly noteworthy that you had to work at getting even this!

    • It was quite stunning, Gunta…and yes, as you well know, the desert sunsets can be like that…as can your ocean sunsets. 🙂

  13. Kinda beautiful is right!
    It’s nice to wander through your meditative posts and images, Scott. A dramatically different landscape than my home turf!
    So lovely.
