A splash of color

Sometimes timing is everything. I was heading home after an afternoon of wandering on snowshoes, heading west on route 101 just outside of Hampton Beach when I caught a glimpse of the setting sun. The sky was painted, with a mirrored reflection in the water.

Route 101 is a two lane road with wide paved shoulders. There were no "no parking" signs in evidence, and the shoulders were very nicely plowed. Instinct took over; I parked, grabbed my camera, and walked back to the bridge I had just crossed.

It was a beautiful sunset.
