    Dawn or dusk?

    Looks like dusk to me. I might be wrong.

    You have a great eye for overlooked beauty in the mundane.

    It sure does stand out in that setting, the eye just goes there.

  4. CSK says:

    The lighting is perfect.

  5. Flat Earth Luddite says:

    Sublime in the ordinary. Tremendous composition, lighting. I don’t know how you do this so consistently, but your captures continue to astound me.

  6. @de stijl: Dusk. While I do occasionally find myself up at dawn, that is rare 😉

    @Flat Earth Luddite: Very kind of you to say!
