Sunrise, Sunset...-- Definitely Sunset

We were out visiting friends this afternoon about 15 miles from home and of course, I was not going anywhere without my camera.  On our journey back we were driving along the Wachusett Reservoir which is a large water supply for the City of Boston and surrounding areas.  It was getting close to sunset and I asked my husband to pull over at the top of the Dam in Clinton, MA so we could see if I could capture the sunsetting.  Well, since 9-11 there is no where that you can pull off the road by any of our dams (I do understand the reasons) but it makes it very difficult to try and get off the road to take a picture.  With the snow piled up the sides of the guard rails it made it impossible to pull off.  So in a last ditch effort I took this one out the window as we were driving down the road.  I could not believe my luck when I got home!  Hope you like it as much as I do......
