181:365 - The road

When I was driving home from work it was just before the sunset. The skies were completely covered by thick clouds. But in the west there was a break in the cloud cover and some clear sky just peeked. I figured that in a few minutes the sun might shine through and light up the underside of the clouds making for a really spectacular sunset.

 

So I stopped by our house, grabbed my camera and a tripod and drove to the outskirts of the city where I know I can see the horizon without buildings or trees blocking the view.

 

I arrived there just about 10 minutes before the sunset (which is supposed to be at 8:54 pm today). Unfortunately the sun has set just to the left of the cloud opening, so the planned event didn't quite happen the way I had hoped for. But still this picture is half decent I think...
