Now the Day is Over

Now the day is over.
Night is drawing nigh.
Yet the traffic still moves eastbound along U.S. Highway 80 at Marion Junction. The 18-wheelers are headed toward Selma where they will likely truck on to Montgomery or Birmingham. In the background, the sun sets on one of the shortest days of the year into a night that became the coldest of the season. We awoke this morning to a thick frost and thermometers that recorded temperatures in the low 20s.

I love the silvery ribbon of road in the photo, it contrasts so nicely with the glowing sky. Such a beautiful scene you've captured here.

Who would think that a photo of traffic could be so moody, so lovely to see.
