Evening skies. Elmwood Park Illinois USA. July 2011., a photo by Eddie from Chicago on Flickr.
One of My all time favorite photographic subjects, are sunsets and the approaching skies of nightfall.
To Me, the ending of a day was always a magical and colorful time...unless of course it is raining pretty hard outside.
I took this photo recently, in near northwest suburban Elmwood Park Illinois. We are facing east in this view. The setting sun, is almost below the horizon in the western sky, and the multi colored hues of an approaching night time sky, make for a lovely and interesting comparison.
Soon, another Summer night will be upon us.
