Sunset on the Missouri


For those that live in the St. Louis Metropolitan area, they are familiar with Highway 40 (64) where it crosses the Missouri River near Chesterfield’s Gumbo Flats. Once while crossing the bridge I looked to the west and noticed a spectacular sunset. This is major metropolitan highway with no way to stop to take a photo so I did not stop. Over the next year I examined the bridge and found that it had a pedestrian walk/bike path and a nearby mall for parking. When the sun was lined up  with with the river again, I was able to stop to get this shot (with massive 18 wheelers rushing past, 5 feet behind me).
