Sunset Amid Energy Lines

I was driving home on the freeway from Mesa in the East Valley a few nights ago and captured this amazing sunset.

Enlarge it to see more details. The power lines and street lights add an interesting dimension.

I had very little time and pulled onto the shoulder of the freeway to snap it quickly before the sun disappeared and before it became too dangerous for me to be stopped on the side of the freeway with cars whizzing by.

You are safe :). Beautiful picture, I have to admit that this time I don't hate power lines and any poles.

The way you've captured this, the poles look cactus-like. It looks almost like a desert of man-made plants.

Good morning Julie!

Beautiful sunset... I love how simply gold it is, and the interest added with the lines.
Thanks for sharing...

I can imagine what you were feeling at the time. I know sometimes that window is so small for getting just the right photo at just the right time. Excellent job on this one Julie.
