Toto Tuesday: Upland sunset Masterpiece
Author: santafe199

You’re standing on the Matador Rd overpass, taking in the atmosphere palette up above. You are simply awestruck by the Magnificent Artistry. Once again you realize how puny you really are in this Universe. You scarcely notice the lead units grinding by underneath you. You shoot images almost from “muscle memory”. The kaleidoscopic Artwork is really something to behold. The DP now slips by, and you briefly turn away for an extra series of shots. But then right back for the Upstairs Finale. Wow, another beauty!

1. UP 7406 climbs the difficult grade up & away from Upland, KS while Someone Upstairs is putting His paint brush to superb use…

2. & 3. While you were watching Master Art being created the earth-bound DP -UP 9068- comes growling past you.

4. The world looks completely different behind you, as you record a ‘going away’ series.

5. Back to the Main Event: The glowing embers Up There will go dark in very a short time. But from 9:08 to 9:17 PM you are in Sunset Heaven.

Thanks Don! And thanks to the rest of you guys, but I can't take all the credit. I just look at the sky, push the shutter release and shoot what the Master Artist puts up there. And there are times when He really knocks one outta the park...
