Five O'Clock Shadow


Looking east in late afternoon, the Edmund Pettus Bridge turns orange
in the sinking sunlight, forming deep shadows upon the Alabama River.

The reflections of the bridge draw me down, down, deep into the water.

Thank you all for your kind comments. I took this photo last fall from the Carneal ArtsRevive terrace by the river.

Oh, Janet, this is really, really beautiful. I hope that someone in Selma will use this photo for a calendar or promotion of Selma or something. It needs to be used! Love the colors and the framing and everything about it.
