I really like driving home from Bible study on Wednesday nights, especially when the days are long and the sunsets are later. More often than not I have a nice sunset to view while I make my way home.
As I was leaving Patterson I took this picture of the sunset. I really like the trio of palm trees silhouetted against the evening sky.
Here are more silhouettes as I wait for the stop light to head toward I-5.
As I get out on the interstate, I have a great view ahead of me. Some high clouds, but also a solid band of red sky ahead of me to the north.
As I approach the 580/5 split I get a nice shot of trucks and cars heading across the overpass as they head south toward LA. They are silhouetted against a colorful sunset.
Off in the distance you can just barely see the two peaks of Mt. Diablo silhouetted against the sunset. It is hard to show the beauty of the sunset, it is so much nicer to view in person.
Did you see a sunset tonight?

Another long Wednesday brings another wanderings post. No specific subject has entered my thoughts so lets see where my wandering mind goes.
I drove home from Bible study tonight with a great sunset in view. Mt. Diablo was silhouetted against the sky just as in the picture above. I took the pictures here four years ago and used them in a post called California Sunset.
I am also thinking that the chance of seeing a sunset over the Mediterranean is now just three weeks away. My trip to Israel is drawing closer and I am having memories of past trips there.
Of course, one of the highlights will be visiting Jerusalem although this will come later in the trip.
One part of the trip that I am really looking forward to is visiting the Dead Sea. This time I should get the chance to soak in the sea as we plan on staying overnight in the area.
Now for some sleep 🙂
