Oklahoma Sunset



(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.)

As Betsy and I traveled west through Oklahoma for the first time, we were impressed by the flat landscape, the wide open spaces and a gorgeous sunset. The sun rays were so beautiful that I had to pull over on the interstate to snap this picture of June 11.

The west is notorious for beautiful sunsets.. it must have been hard to keep your eyes on the road.
You captured the heavenly colors of this Oklahoma sky perfectly, George.

I would have pulled over, too, George! Spectacular sunset!

The endless highway! LOVE the rays! They are so hard for me to capture, when I focus on them, they fade away almost completely. I never can capture them with the camera as strong as they really are.

Absolutely stunning!!

It is indeed beautiful!!

You are correct about both - - the beauty of the rays and the flatness of the landscape. I would not like that. I have been told that people who move to the mountains after living in the plains can sometimes feel claustrophobic. If I lived in the plains after being in the mountains, I would feel like part of me was missing.

This is gorgeous George!!! I always avoid "road" shots because I thought the road ruined the shot...NOT...it actually enhances your shot!!!
