OUR WORLD - SUNSET ON A HIGHWAY




Nothing is more boring then the highway from Brussels/Waterloo to Amsterdam ! The landscape is flat like a pancake, and a part from some fields with a few cows, industrial buildings, modern offices and sometimes a gaz station there is stricly nothing to see. On the whole way you can see maybe three windmills, which interrups the monotone way. It's almost a miracle that no driver falls asleep ! On the contrary they drive like mad (if they could, but there is the speed limit) probably to get out of this boring way !

But this time I was lucky ! We left Amsterdam around 4 and as the sun had come out late in the day, it had no time to shine but presented a beautiful sunset.



I took my camera and took all photos out of the window ! I shot and shot and shot in the hope that I could give at least an idea of the changing sky !



It got darker and darker



and near Brussels I could take the last photos. Then it became dark like in a cavern. At least this time I had something to look at and the time went by quiet quickly. The whole trip takes about two hours.
Reading is impossible for me, I get sick !

The stunning skies surely made up for the boring drive.

What a gorgeous way to end the day -- any day! Your captures are fantastic, Gattina! I'm glad you had something to brighten up a dull ride -- the worst and the longest travel time!! Hope your week is going well! Enjoy!

Well you did get some great shots of the sunset.
Canada is like that. Either mountainous or completely flat.But then you see miles and miles of whatever is planted there and sometimes it smells sooo good.

I get sick if I read in the car too. But at least you passed the time taking some beautiful photos.

Wow, nothing boring about that drive on this day. Beautiful skies. (But as a long-time roadtripper, I know exactly what you mean about boring stretches. Every day isn't this beautiful.)
