Gliding down sunset lane

Gliding down sunset lane

San Diego, California

Gliding down sunset lane at the Torrey Pines Glider Port. I'm dedicating this
image to the crew of the Space Shuttle Columbia. They died while doing
something they like... gliding through space.

Due to a hazy atmosphere, the noise level is rather high. Without the glider in
the image, I would have chosen image #8 on my sunsets gallery for my POTW.
The sun has set for the crew of the Shuttle Columbia, but their legacy shines
through the clouds.
