I could see that I wasn't going to reach my destination by sunset. That fiery orb was sinking too quickly toward the horizon, the dark storm clouds were moving to intercept.
I made the decision to be late. I knew that when I showed my waiting family the reason for my tardiness, that they would be okay with my reason.
While I took many shots as the sun set, I waited until it had barely disappeared behind the cloud to take the following shot. I wanted the cloud lining to glow.
If you look carefully (click the photo to enlarge it), a bird made its way into the photo. But that's okay: we both had places to be.
