It’s not this time of the year without…. driving to see family.

It’s not this time of the year without…. driving to see family (linked to the weekly photo challenge)

These are the roads approaching DC – on Thanksgiving – and never in all of my life have I seen this highway so empty. Wow.
headlights
No editing needed for this warm hued sky – I like the way the left headlights are in sync with small street lights and the waning daylight.

  1. Good ones Y and thanks for the link up πŸ™‚ That road is empty – I would have thought it’s always like that, like in the movies πŸ˜€ And the sunset is terrific – a stunner πŸ™‚

      1. Wow / a year? Well congrats – and glad to have connected – the first post of yours I ever read you said something like “hey, it’s me again – hope you are not tired of me…” and it had such an inviting pep- I just smiled and wanted to read more.

  2. Beautiful skies, and I should add…. how many lanes do you have in the US, no wonder is empty, and no wonder also that when there is traffic it must be quite crazy to drive there.
    It just brought good memories, me (if you can believe it) driving through or in between or here and there of those lanes…. crazy.
    Love ya

    1. Crazy for “crazy life” πŸ˜‰
      Well Those lanes are in a very populated place – northern Virginia – and they are usually packed full! Especially during the day – and the last time going through here – we spent almost 20 bucks to ride the fast track lane and it was just as slow as the reguLar lanes of traffic-
      But believe me these lanes are usually full!
      And glad to have sparked a memory CP One ….

  3. roads to d.c. empty…november…election year.. uh, pardon me a chuckle as I’d swear as dumb as this should sound, that’s a political hahaha.

    1. Hey star man jones- it does not sound silly – you actually know much about the essence of life – from what I have noticed so far that is….
      πŸ˜‰
      And maybe a political connection – ha!

    1. It was that way most of the afternoon! We arrived at our destination in 1 hour and 40 minutes – that same commute the following Saturday was almost three hours (which included a stop at wa wa gas station to feed my niece her first toasted wa wa sub sandwich)

  4. That’s just like the motorways in Sweden – pure bliss and a joy to drive! In England it’s often bumper to bumper apart from Christmas Day when we’re returning home after visiting family – the only time of the year you can actually see the scenery! Hoping we all have stress-free holiday travels. 🌲

  5. I’m flabbergasted on the blaze of that sky. The color is incredibly unbelievable. I won’t be able to fly home this or next. Oh well, I’m used to it, and they’re used to it. Have a joyous time with your family, Y.

    1. Thanks R! Sounds like everyone is used to it as you log those countries 🌎🌍🌏
      We are staying out for xmas this year – have family coming from Midwest!
      And that sky blew me away – it was super windy that day and I was waiting for Jackie to show up – and so why not grab a few pics….

  6. Our Thanksgiving was spent alone as we’d just arrived back from England. We did have wonderful family times in South Africa and England, though. What a gorgeous sunset capture! The cartoon of texting whilst flying a plane is very scary indeed. ;( xx

    1. Well you were hardly alone in that habitat of yours S- where thankfully there is not texting and flying – but lots of other shenanigans –
      And welcome back….
      I remember your quick little mention of Heathrow and sounds like a great trip β˜€οΈ
