Photo of the Day (1.9.11)

If taken poorly, sunset photos can be quite boring. But sometimes you find an exception, like this stunning shot by Flickr user justindelaney. What initially caught my eye was that fiery red color, in the middle. To me it’s the epitome of the type of dry, searing dusty day you’d expect to find in Texas, where this shot was taken. You can almost feel the heat of the day evaporating, sandwiched between two layers of inky-black sky. I can imagine myself sitting on a porch in front of this scene, kicking back with a frosty bottle of Shiner Bock, watching the day slip into the cool embrace of evening.

Have any great travel photos you’d like to share with the world? Why not add them to our Gadling group on Flickr? We might just pick one of yours as our Photo of the Day.
