Photo of the day, Friday, November 4, 2011

I was up way too early to catch a 6am flight that landed in Phoenix at 6:20am, courtesy of the time zone switch.  As I got of the rental car bus I had to dig into my rolling briefcase to pull out my “travel camera” which has been ruined by a problem that many Panasonic Lumix cameras have, dust in the lens.

I carry it though because I’ve not yet figured out what I might replace it with, and I’m also hoping that I win a new camera in a local photo contest that I entered.

But at times, when the spots don’t show up, I go ahead and shoot.

I would have preferred a view that was less obstructed, but sometimes you have to go with what you have.  The whole scene didn’t last 5 minutes before the colors faded with the approaching daylight.

The panorama was actually shot first in the series, before the bright center light of the sun shows up in the first photo.  You can find a larger image of the panorama here.
