the strong vertical line of the lamp post meeting at right angles to the horizon gives this shot almost a geometric quality, and the color of the lamp as it warms up seems to mimic the hues of sunset in the sky...

Outstanding! It you had gotten there any later, the sunset would be darker and the lamp brighter and the resulting photo probably wouldn't be worth looking at. Your timing was perfect.

thanks, Cal... i'd actually been there for about 20 minutes by that time, hoping for a decent "sunset" photo, and spotted this lamp coming on as i was getting ready to leave. i noticed it coming on very slowly (sodium vapor lamps do that), and waited around for a few minutes longer, taking pics. this one came out best, with the color of the lamp almost the same as the sunset sky...

Almost approaches the abstract.

Very nice job.

Aloha

Truly a beautiful shot....shows creativity to have thought of making the connection between the two light sources.
