Well, Halloween is now behind us. October is officially kaput. I always view November 1st as the real beginning of Winter, regardless of what the calendar, weathermen, or thermometer says. And with this end of Fall, I also like to say that “sunset season” has ended. I normally consider that season to stretch from beginning of September to the end of October. In that two months, there are lots of dramatic sunsets but, more important, sunsets we all get to see. We see them while walking home from work; or while out with friends; or after seeking shelter from all those late summer/fall rain storms.

Veeresh_ai does a fantastic job capturing the beauty of this season. He has wonderful gradation of colors in the sky; as well as some simply beautiful colors, from a brilliant orange to a great, deep purple. And then he was able to get a perfect silhouette of a fascinating building; a building that gives the viewer a sense of scale of the sky. Truly, a picture for all seasons; but, most importantly, for sunset season.

Brian is so DC. Born on Pennsylvania Ave (not there) to a lifelong Federal worker father and a mother who has worked for Garfinkel’s, the Smithsonian, and Mount Vernon. Raised on the “mean streets” of Cheverly, MD; went to high school at Gonzaga College High School (Hail Alma Mater!); and now trolls the corridors of Congress as a lobbyist, you couldn’t write a more quintessentially DC back-story. When he isn’t trying to save the country from itself, Brian can be found walking DC looking for that perfect photograph.
