Evening Gold

With the main roads still closed from flooding... A couple of weeks ago Leena and I hiked into the park to watch/photograph the sunset. Despite it being very hot and humid, with the temperature hovering around 100 degrees, I though this was a good opportunity to find images for the Monthly Theme.

*BTW Leena got some stunning images as the sun melted in the western horizon!
