Taken driving toward the Caldecott Tunnel under perfect hazy conditions. As I moved up the hill, the sun would change position relative to the trees/ridgeline, and I took a few frames.

Cropped to panoramic to eliminate big ugly streetlight; cloned out a tiny pole and some wires.

Searched online for suitable quotations and came up with two ... the caption for this version reads:

Though force can protect in emergency, only justice, fairness, consideration and co-operation can finally lead men to the dawn of eternal peace.
--Dwight D. Eisenhower (1890 - 1969)

i love that quote .. shame our world leaders turn to force when justice, fairness, consideration and co-operation could have transformed our world ..
live and let live .. not trying to change others because you believe you know whats right for them .. thats another one ..
and believing there's enough for all .. the belief that there isnt takes humanity down tragic and devastating roads ..
