Chasing the Sunset


After taking the snapshots in the church parking lot, I continued to chase the sunset. I had never seen such colors in the sky before - gold, pink, blazing red and a velvety blue.

I finally found myself on a hill in an abandoned housing development. The streets had been paved, the utility lines laid, but the houses were never built due to the collapse of the housing industry. It made for a great location to get out of the car once again and take snapshots of how the sky looked after the sun had completely set.

Looks like a fire ablaze behind the treeline, doesn't it? It's just the last light of the sun.

Here's something interesting. Go to the location I've marked on Google Maps and choose the Street View. You'll see how it looked back in 2008 when the red-hot housing construction industry was still flourishing. Today it is waist-high in weeds.
