"How fine has the day been! how bright was the sun, How lovely and joyful the course that he run! Though he rose in a mist when his race he begun, And there followed some droppings of rain: But now the fair traveler's come to the west, His rays are all gold, and his beauties are best; He paints the skies gay as he sinks to his rest, And foretells a bright rising again."
~ Isaac Watts
I took the sunsets for granted throughout the summer months as magnificence had become standard fare in the evening hours. Now that the sky has been overcast rather regularly I’ve realized I should have been out there shooting as much as possible.
This photograph of the sun almost behind the horizon at sunset was taken a few days back while going for a walk. I liked how the clouds were stretched across the sky. This one is available as a desktop.
In 36 hours I will be almost above the European continent.
