Five O' Clock Shadow (Photo of the Year)

Happy New Year!

Five O'Clock Shadow is my choice for "Photo of the Year" for 2012.

While I did not post nearly as many pictures last year due to staying home
 and using less gasoline, there are several pictures that seem to outshine
 the multitude of photographs of the past! This is one of them. 
This photo from Feb. 5, 2012, also collected more than
 the usual number of comments, so it must have been popular with readers.

As the late-evening sun focused its energy upon the Edmund Pettus Bridge,
 shadows deepened, and the bridge just beamed!
