Naked trees salute the evening sky as the sun sinks below the horizon.

I have yet to find a vantage point from which to capture a fabulous sunset without something ugly or intrusive spoiling the shot. But this worked for me!

    Sunsets can be such a cliche*, but this one is unusual and very lovely indeed.

    *When I was in photog. school, taking my first color course, the professor told the class that if anyone’s final portfolio contained a photograph of a sunrise or a sunset behind the Washington Monument, it was an automatic “F” on the course!

    Nothing ugly about this shot. Note to Passante: A rather didactic man, I’d say! If I wouldn’t be too impolite, I’d say, “F… him!”

    Umm, Kate, he (a photographer of some stature and a first-class teacher) had his tongue in his cheek. But undoubtedly he’d seen enough pretty pink skies behind the W. Monument to last him a lifetime! In the same way, when I taught college English, I used to tell students that I had read more than enough argument papers on abortion and capital punishment, and that I would be FAR more kindly disposed toward their efforts if they didn’t pick one of those two topics!
