Know how moths are attracted to the light? They just can't seem to resist its charm. That's me with the Mississippi River. I love watching the sun reflect off the churning water. I am mesmerized each time I watch tows cutting their way underneath the bridges. My wife and family know that if they look up in the sky and see that the sunset is going to be a pretty one — and I am not home yet — then I will usually be perched somewhere on the river to capture God's Glory. God does an exceptionally good job of ending each day with an array of dazzling colors that so many never take time to see. Not me, brother. I'm there if I can.
The pictures you see here were all taken in the last week. They were shot from the new parking garage tower of Ameristar. I appreciate the casino building me a photography stand with seven different levels. It's nice. I love the third picture the best — it seems like the river is fire!
But these pictures, however, can't do the sunsets the justice they deserve. They are just too pretty to be captured adequately by a camera. The colors change so fast, the clouds breeze by so quickly, the sun sets so quickly. But give me an A for trying. I'll show you some more tomorrow.
