Autumn brings out the most lovely sunsets, and in a city full of pomp and majesty, it’s sometimes refreshing when nature one-ups the construction of mankind. This shot was taken earlier this week as I was returning from riding laps at Hains Point. It was a bittersweet day: I rode laps with a friend who was celebrating her birthday (as well as her husband), as we all grieved for a friend who was just diagnosed with breast cancer.

Sunsets can mean different things to different people. To some, they signify an ending. To others, it’s the signal of a new beginning or rebirth. And the sunset that day signified both things, and a lot more.
