golden sunlight

October 2 was a very warm and sunny day but
in late afternoon some darkening clouds appeared
on the western horizon.

As I was driving along the highway by the 
St. John River at sunset the sun broke through the dark clouds behind me and cast the most beautiful
golden glow across the landscape.

I knew I had to pull over and capture this golden
light on the river.

I stayed there for 15 minutes and took a lot of

It was beautiful standing there and watching
the sun slip down over the hill as it's golden
light reflected on the river.
The traffic whizzed past on the highway while
I clicked away and listened to the odd cricket 
and bird around me, basking in the glow of the
last light of the day.

What a perfect end to a perfect day.

I'm so glad I had my camera with me and that
there was a place to stop along the road.
[even though I was late for choir practice]

It was definitely worth it!
Don't you think?
