    Something biblical is about to happen...

    At least that is what this sunset in Acton reminded me of, i.e. the pillar of fire that followed behind the Israelites.

    Cool shot Ray!

    But I believe they were LED by a cloud in the day, and the pillar of fire at nigh.

    Technicality, I know.

    Yes, that is true. But it rested behind the Israelites and before the Egyptians at the crossing of the sea, which is what I was thinking of.

    So very true. It held the Egyptians back while they crossed. Then it let them through to be drowned.

    I had a link that showed where the Egyptian army bought it. Some researchers had found the remains of their chariots. If I can find it, I'll send it to you.

    Again, great photo!

    This is absolutely AWESOME, Ray!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have never seen such a cloud formation in nature, and the fact that you captured it on camera, during SUNSET, in such a PERFECT WAY makes this one of the best pictures I've ever seen in my life!!

    BRAVO!

    Do you sell prints? I think I would like a high-quality print of this to frame. At least 11x14-ish. If you do, please direct me to a website to make the transaction ...

    This is by all means a great picture Ray, I doubt that it could get any better.

    Thanks for sharing
