Sunrise over the Bridge

This will be first in a few photos about morning or evening commute. If I happen to be in the car during sunrise or sunset and traffic comes to a stop and I happen to have my camera ready then I might be able to take a shot. It is hard to take photos like this, because I have to be at a total stop and you never know when that will happen and what you are going to see in front of you. There might be spectacular colors in the sky by you are blocked by some huge truck and there is no point to take a photo. Photos like this are random, without any preparation or a much thought about the framing of the subject. Take it if you can and hope for the best outcome.

This photo is on the Dulles Toll Road, somewhere between Reston and Tysons Corner. Traffic was moving very slow with frequent stops. Every time it stopped I put my camera on the top of the steering wheel and took a shot. We were coming to this bridge and the sun was right behind it, looking very interesting. I was hoping that traffic will stop so I could take  a photo. How selfish of me. And we stopped.
