Sunsets of Summer

Seen going North on I495, Merrifield, Virginia
 One of the parts I love most about Summer are the gorgeous sunsets I get to witness every day on my way home from work.  I tend to work from 10-7pm, and with the notorious traffic of Northern Virginia, I find that I have a lot of time to sit and watch the sunset, via Interstate 66W in the HOV lane. :)

This summer's display has not been disappointing, to say the least.  We have had many 100 degree days that bring in a  late afternoon storm which to me is a perfect recipe of clouds and colors to really make a sunset spectacular.   Since I hadn't written in awhile, I thought I would at least share some of the sunset photos I have been able to capture while driving home.  I never get tired of taking pictures of the sky.  It truly is a wonderous painting.

By the way, I am still doing my Walkography, but as I mentioned before, we have had too many 100 degree days, so I haven't been walking much outside.  I can't wait for Fall to arrive so I can pick it back up and enjoy my walks outside once more.  Hard to believe Summer of 2012 is almost over!
