Golden sunset

While driving east with my son this evening, I couldn’t stop looking to the west at the beautiful golden sunset. I’d brought my camera with and though he was driving, I forced him to stop briefly when I was able to grab a few quick images at a spot that provided a relatively unobstructed view.

I added a bit of softening to this image which lost a bit of detail and significantly added brightness to a portion of the sky. Larry Shapiro photo
