This is a section of Main St. in Quartzsite at dusk.

After taking pictures of the sky the other night, I turned around to walk back across the street.. and it struck me, “this is dusk!”   1) blue still in the sky 2) sun was behind the mountains 3) lights were on. So I set the tripod up on the sidewalk facing east; selected shutter priority for 1 sec and put the 10-sec timer on.  And magically two cars and bike appear out of nowhere.  Honestly, there had been no traffic!

I took a few more after the cars left, but as it turned out, I liked this first one the best. I just wish I had caught more of the biker on the far right of the photo.
