Sharp. Distance, Sunset

How does that Yes! song go?  "Sail on, into the heart of the sunrise... Sharp. Distance." This is the I-10 version of that, sunset-style.

Live sundown stage

The Beaumont, TX,  downtown skyline appears as dark stage props against the glowing sunset. "...all the world's a stage."

Cold front greets us

From my cell phone, this shot is heading west toward Lake Charles on I-10 on Sunday.  We were just passing through the cold front passing the area.
Blustery winds and driving rains were just coming upon us.

Muscular crepuscular rays

Crepuscular rays leap over the clouds to add depth to the sky show.  They are called crepuscular because they are more often scene in the crepuscular hours -- near dawn and dusk.  According to the Wikipedia entry, they appear to diverge but it is only an optical illusion.
