Memorial Park, Omaha, sunset

Posted by
karla (Omaha, United States) on 7 January 2012 in Cityscape & Urban and Portfolio.

Moving on to other images from the weekend of Dec. 4. The large steeple (and the smaller, very slim one to its right) in the distance is St. Margaret Mary Roman Catholic Church. The dark windows just below to the right of the steeple is the parish school building. Barely seen through the tree branch, to the left of the steeple, is the bell tower on the campus of the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO).

@Ronnie 2¢: Thank you, Ronnie. It was a quieting/peaceful moment for me to watch the sun slowly set and the colors change.

@Richard Geven: Thanks, Richard! You are the first, I think, to comment on the person (not sure of gender..too far away to know). I waited to click the shutter depending on where the person was. It was one of those timely moments.
