Sent in by Kim, who says "On a long and congested commute home from work, an impressive and humbling reminder of the power of our Creator."

Photo by Richard Matt of Naugatuck. Taken on his cell phone camera near I-91 in Windsor, CT.

Richard says, “I had listened to the Afterglow and Evening Prayer on WJMJ 88.9 FM while traveling.  Pulling off the highway to reflect, I turned to my left and was witness to this inspiring sunset. Coincidence?...... Hardly.”
