Sudden sunset

The sun was behind the clouds. It was getting dark. I looked up and there was this amazing light shining above the ground and below the sky, which I tried to capture with my Android camera. At first I thought it was a huge spotlight from a helicopter or outer space. Then I realized it had to be the sun (which, when you think about it, actually is a spotlight from outerspace.) I turned around, but I couldn't see where it was coming from. It was mostly dark behind me with just a few, thin, wispy layers of pink and purple lighted clouds low on the horizon. I don't think this is making any sense, but I'm glad I got to see it. I needed to see it. I really needed to see it today.

I hope whoever sees these pictures can feel just half of what I felt when I saw it. It was soul stirring and soothing at the same time.

Downtown Springfield at 7:48 tonight. I just looked it up, and today's sunset was at 7:48 p.m.

Cool pics, indeed. I still haven't come up with a name for the restaurant at the top of that tower that I dare leave in a comment.
