Whole lot going on in that sunset – definitely not like the ones I grew up with.

Mark writes:

I could not avoid contrails in the sky tonight (pretty sure much of this is Chicago), so I decided to focus on them.

I think that’s a good choice.

Brian suggests the Cinematic Orchestra’s Outer Space to accompany this photo. View it on black and might I suggest queuing up the song above and digging into his Gray Matter slideshow.
