[SkyWatch] Sun Setting on Industry

On our drive south along the Pearl River Delta recently, I rolled down my window to snap these shots of the  setting sun as we were zooming past a heavy industry portion of the province.




Guangdong, 2011

Love that first one in particular with the smoke and the lava like clouds.

I agree, I like the first photo. You are a super photographer even when zooming past, Francisca.

Someone needs to start a meme of photos taken from one's car. Most interesting. Almost makes the factory smoke seem pretty.
