Sundown from a Parking Lot
Last night I drove to Food4Less in the early evening as the sun was about to set. It was a blinding sun. The idea was to go east, shop, and come out after it was down so I would not be blinded driving home. When I came out, the sky was pinkish-orange. Here's a photo.

Another Sight in the Sky
As I stood by the edge of the parking lot near the road trying to decide if I should take another picture, a plane appeared in front of me, coming from the west. It was already past me before I could get a shot.
I used a zoom to try to zero in on it, but it was moving so fast I'm not sure it helped very much. It was probably heading for the airport.

Finally it disappeared into the horizon. I got this shot just before it was completely out of sight.

After the plane was gone, I headed back toward my car in the lot.
As I walked toward my car, I gave thanks again that I live here where I can see many large trees dressing up the parking lot.

The trees closest to the store were in bloom. It first I thought they were crape myrtles, but the leaves don't look quite right. I can't locate this tree in my field guide books. Perhaps it's a hybrid that isn't shown. Can you identify it? If so, please leave a comment below. Here is the overview.

Here is a closer look at the flowers.
