i was on my way home from college, it was an early evening and the temperature was so nice outside. i thought to myself i must be crazy if i go home right now. so i when down to kelly drive, parked, grabbed the canon, and take a leisurely walk down the drive. as i was taking in the sites and sounds of the runners, walkers, and bikers all plugged into their ipods, unaware that right above them, the master was at work. the sun was setting and a low cloud started to move in. i couldn't believe what i was seeing. rays from the sun were breathtaking. i had to get this shot. now i just need an autograph.
