Sunset and the Harvest of Progress

Last Monday I posted about Harvest of Progress which is a new sculpture in downtown Tracy.

I mentioned in the post that it would probably look really cool silhouetted against a nice sunset.

Sunset in California - Tracy, California - Silhouettes - Beautiful SunsetI have kept my eye open for the right opportunity to go back and get some sunset pictures. Tonight was the night.

I spent the afternoon getting my car smogged and dropping off books at the library. When I left the library I noticed that it looked like we would have a nice sunset so turned toward downtown instead of heading for home.

From this angle it is hard to tell that there are two figures standing back to back. I would recommend that you visit my the Harvest of Progress post to see a better view of the sculpture. The post also tells more about the sculpture and what it represents.

I am looking forward to summer sunsets as the sky will be lit up in a different direction so I can get a different perspective.

Of course, I could probably get some good sunrise pictures, but I am not usually a morning person 🙂

I also took pictures of some of the transportation art around the transit station, but decided that I need to come back when there is much better light.

I hope you enjoyed this different look at the Harvest of Progress sculpture.
