It is 14º F outside (-10º C). The weatherman says on Tuesday, we'll have a high of 0º F (-17.8º C). This photo, which shows the ESB Bank thermometer across the Dairy Queen displaying 81º F (27º C), was taken after my son and I went to take photos of the car cruise at the parking lot of our local KMart (barely visible on the left). It does not show a favorite tourist attraction or a natural wonder, it is just Rt. 65 going into New Castle on a fine summer evening. It reminds me of the aria Summertime composed by George Gershwin for the 1935 opera Porgy and Bess:
And the livin' is easy
Fish are jumpin'
And the cotton is high
Oh, Your daddy's rich
And your mamma's good lookin'
So hush little baby
Don't you cry
One of these mornings
You're going to rise up singing
Then you'll spread your wings
And you'll take to the sky
But until that morning
There's a'nothing can harm you
With your daddy and mammy standing by...
Bir Yaz Akşamının Hatırası
Dışarda 14 º F (-10 º C). Meteoroloji Salı günü, en yüksek 0º F (-17.8 ° C) olacak diyor. Dairy Queen karşısında ESB Banka termometresinin 81º F’ı (27º C) gösterirken görüntüleyen bu fotoğraf, oğlumla birlikte bizim yerel KMart (solda zar zor görünür) otoparkındaki otomobil seyirinin fotoğraflarını çekmeye gittikten sonra alınmıştı. Bu bir gözde turistik atraksiyon ya da bir doğa harikasını değil, sadece Rt. 65’i güzel bir yaz akşamı New Castle’a girerken gösteriyor. Bu bana 1935 operası Porgy ve Bess için George Gershwin’in bestelediği arya Summertime’ı (Yaz Vakti) hatırlatıyor:
Ve hayat kolay
Ve pamuk yüksek
Oh, Baban zengin
Ve anan iyi görünümlü
Hadi şşş küçük bebek
Şarkı söyleyerek kalkacaksın
Sonra da kanatlarını açacak
Ve gökyüzüne yükseleceksin
Ama o sabaha kadar
Sana zarar verecek bişey yok
Baban ve anan yanında durdukça...

Midsummer evening with 81F is not so bad, Murat, it is rather pleasent weather. And yes, now with freezing temp.'s, yielding to summer is understandable.
Nice sunset colors, DOF along the road, and well divided pic. space.
Have a nice weekend,

Very nice sunset view from the side of this highway. I have a similar looking shot which I took many years ago from the side of I90 in Albany NY, but here the sunset is more spectacular with marvelous colours. The series of cars and the length of the road is giving depth and creating wonderful perspective in this photo. A crisp , clear and colourful photo, thanks for sharing.

I see no fish jumpin' here, but it is a nice photo of a warm evening in summer, definitely a much more pleasant climate than any of us is experiencing at this moment. 27 (or 81) degrees at sunset is quite a lot. Although the red sun and orange sky are the main attractions of this photo, the sign informing us of the temperature is a good eye-catcher too.

Really nice to see a warm and pleasant summer view here, now when winter has arrived in full force. Good sunset colours!

I like very much how you adjusted the wide road and its long perspective in a panoramic frame, placing the sun at a perfect position too. The sun and the warm colours in the sky are rich, eye-catching and pleasant and it's amazing how deep and clear the whole view is as well. I also like the sense of movement and the interesting details we gradually discover near and far. One of the loveliest elements is the trail of orange reflection on the road. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great weekend,

An exquisite light management with a wonderful pov. The road with endless depth, is excellently captured in this difficult light. The setting sun is really great.
A classic presentation.

It's hard for me to comprehend the bitter cold temps for so much of the country right now...I mean, we're already dealing with 80 degrees!? Sorry, didn't mean to rub salt in an open wound. :) This is a nice way to be reminded of warmer days though, the deep orange/red sky really stands out with a much more tolerable climate. Perhaps nothing of a particular attraction here as you stated, but it sure is a strong perspective and great use of a panoramic cut. An easy, smooth flow from one end to the other. Stay warm. Enjoy the week ahead.

You're capturing well this summer evening by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see Rt. 65 being extended straightly having a loose slope and rich suburban scenery wrapped green. It's very beautiful/tasteful spectacle that the sun is sinking to the horizon while dyeing sky the orange color. From the present arctic cold, it seems like your shout which desires for summer. And, the beautiful lyrics.

an urban sunset caught in a special way. I liked these details of the daily life in the area. while you are crazy for hot days I am crazy for fresh days, in these last days we have had temperatures around 32-35 everyday.
