Flames on the Horizon

Flames on the Horizon

The horizon is painted with a broad swath of flames as the lingering sun sets the atmosphere ablaze over Southwest Virginia and Tennessee. The upside of spending a month flying at night is that we experience more hours of sunset than most people experience in a year…In a complex equation of relative motion and circadian rhythms, time seems to slow down as we travel west, racing the earth’s shadow. We appreciate these long peaceful moments as we bask in the light and avoid looking at our watches.

This is a small flat cut of the light on the horizon, shot with my 85mm, 1.8G lens.
