This photo involved a mad scramble. I was at the Record working on archiving digital images when it seemed like every soul in the newsroom noticed the sky at the same time. Several voices loudly exclaimed, "look at the sunset"! Some immediately walked out on our small second floor balcony for a better look. All those with cameras grabbed them and headed for exits. I have witnessed a lot of nice sunsets but this one was pretty exceptional. I headed for my car. From past experience time is short to find something interesting to photograph against the sky and a ride helps. I needed a hill and found one close to the office. Some illegal parking and a stroke of good luck in the form of a bundled up pedestrian crossing the street helped me get this image.
