One of the best places I know to take pictures of the afternoon sky and setting sun is the parking lot at my local Target store.
I know that sounds wrong. Living in such a naturally beautiful and picturesque town as Mukilteo, Washington, I should be recommending the nearby beach, or a cliff over the sound, or a vantage point from a wooded glade.
Nope. It's the view from the asphalt tarmac outside a big box store that really does it for me.
Check out these glories of today's pale winter sky and you'll see just what I mean.
I know this isn't exactly what the expression, "paved paradise," is supposed to mean, but it sure is working for me.
