362/365 Movement: setting sun

This was the only bit of sunshine we got on this rainy, cloudy day, but at least it went out with a bang! I was actually driving eastward, but the sun caught my eye in my rearview mirror -- so I had to pull over.

I'm continually struck by the phenomenon that makes the sun (or moon) appear larger on the horizon. Not surprisingly, it's just our brains playing tricks on us, but it does make for an interesting scene.

That movement from daylight to dusk was my themed capture of the day.

Camera: Canon 40D, 1/125s, f/4.5 at ISO 1000 at about 8:00 p.m.
