Down the street I live...

I stare down this road almost everyday. I've walked to and back from school on this very road zillions of times. But it never occured to me it'd make such a beautiful capture. The sun trying to play its magic over a heavily overcast sky right after a heavy downpour from the first monsoon showers of '08.

Truly this pic, full of colors and life, goes by daily in front of us... and how we miss them in a split second look that we tend to have at everything usual in our lives. Luv the way you've composed it... the description adds to the beauty.

Really odd colours. I have only once experienced yellow world. When the sun is playing with yellow. I am glad that I am not the only one. Of course if its real...

@M. Isabel: Set quite off the true white so that I could oversaturate the green and yellow later.
