Hi.

After my day shift ending at 7pm, the sky was still very cloudy after a thunderstorm but while driving home, the sky was much clearer on the north side. So I drove 50km west norht-west to catch the sun before the sunset as my small scope was in the car just in case.

Andre.

I do like a man that's prepared to make a little detour to get an image ... :waytogo:
