Dramatic sunset at a regional airport

After returning home from South Carolina and posting the beach sunset yesterday, Dorothy & I were greeted by this dramatic sunset at a regional airport by our home. We watched the sunset as we drove along the highway and observed the colors continue to grow in brilliance after the sun had gone down.

There was a brief opportunity to stop at the Chicago Executive Airport to capture the last vestiges of the beautiful display.
