End of Day

On a recent evening with clouds providing a promise of a possible colorful sunset, I was out in rural Kane County and came away with this image.

Storage silos provided a strong silhouette against a colorful end of day on a farm near Burlington, Illinois. The bright spot at right was created by a dirt whirlwind that was caused by a gust of wind and was illuminated by the late rays of the sun. The quirk provided an unusual highlight in the image.
