Sunset over the west mesa

Sitting and browsing flickr last night, I spotted this shot of jko's which seemed shockingly similar to this shot which I had taken earlier that day. I put down my laptop to go get my camera and upload.


This sunset was directly out my loft window.


I tore down the stairs, screaming "HOLY SHIT I'M GONNA MISS IT!!!!" or something like that, grabbed my cam, and raced back up. I snapped a few shots on Aperture, and the sunset magic just kept on coming. I risked spending the time to switch to manual mode for a little underexposure.


This was the result.


so, thank you a BILLION, Jen. If I hadn't seen your shot, this beauty would have played out behind me as I mindlessly surfed and I would have missed it.


I am SO gonna use this for the CWD "light source in the frame" assignment.
