Sky Watch Friday - Glowing sunset

As I left the store Wednesday afternoon, the sun was setting and I took the above shot before heading home. At a stop sign, I took another shot through the windshield.

Then I pulled over and took a few more from the side of the road. In the last image you can see the outline of Catoctin Mountain below the clouds. It was only 5 minutes between the first and last image.

You must have some super clean windows in your car to take sunset photos as fantastic as that. Everytime I attempt a photo from my windshield it comes out terrible because their is so much salt on there! ;o)
