Great Ball of Fire

While this is probably not the most interesting shot you’ll ever see, I just couldn’t prevent myself from pulling my camera out of my purse sitting shotgun in the car, checking for cars in the rear view mirror, slowing to a crawl, and quickly snapping this shot out of the driver’s side window.  The sun was sinking fast and the colors were amazing.  There was no place to pull over and no better spot ahead, and all the while the sky looked like a giant ball of fire was smashing into the earth and releasing the most brilliant pinks and purples.

  1. I had one of those moments this week but the only camera I had was my iPhone and I was talking to a friend in another state so I missed the chance. It was just an amazing sunset. You have to take the chance when it comes. Glad you do that!

    • Debby, I think you’re right. And your advice about taking the chance when it comes is wise advice beyond photographs! 🙂 I hope you have a lovely Mother’s Day tomorrow!

  4. HAHAHA Why is it that when you see a good shot you feel like, I HAVE TO GET IT NOW!! lol! I do that too where I dangerously pull over and snap any picture I can as quickly as I can! HAHA Those moments don’t come around all the time! Yours came out a lot better than mine do when I do crazy things like that lol!
