CRASH! and a Sunset

Sunset and moon from front yard 12-16-2012

The intersection around the corner from us used to average a crash every couple of months, but lately it’s been quiet. Still, the sound of screeching tires and a dull thud caused the nap magnet to release me from its grip.

I walked out in the front yard and noticed some of the neighbors looking down the street, so I hopped in the car to see if anybody needed help. It turned out to be a minor fender bender without any obvious injuries, so I went back to the house.

On the way to the front door, I looked up at the red sky at night and saw the moon that Dad would say is “holding water.” Let’s hope the red sky at night will signal a better week for us all. (Click on it to make it larger.)

Photo geek info: I underexposed the image about 2-1/2 stops from the automatic reading to make the sky go darker.

  1. Nice sunset…I miss Florida sunsets. The west coast of Florida has the best sunsets in the world. Missouri just does not have the same thing going from it. Being in Missouri this month has made me miss the sunsets and the warmth while watching them.

  2. Beautiful shot! I, too, miss Florida sunsets. That is one thing to say for a flat landscape. Here we are part way down the east side of a hill so we miss the best parts of sunsets. We do get some spectacular sunrises over the mountains, though.
