Hunting for the last light

The parade was over. People were gathering in front of a stage in joyful anticipation of a local band, that later would play the music for dance and entertainment, and a man was sneaking around the blog hunting for the last light of the day. I found it reflected on the windows and walls of this tall grain elevator beside the railroad tracks. I dialed in 1/160s, f/8, -½ EV, ISO 100… click… Done deal!  Liked it better than any of my images from the parade in the afternoon…
