Orange car meets orange sunset reflected in a window.

(Could have been a better shot with a long lens, but alas all my other lenses were 4 hours away...)

Beautiful old car. Takes me back to my first car...a '61 VW Beetle Deluxe and my third car, a '69 VW Beetle Deluxe 1500. I used to race my '69 at the drag strip, back then. Best time 19.4 seconds @ 68.5 mph, according to the Chrondek clocks.

The Beetle is really cool car design. My grandma used to have one until my parents convinced her in the early 1990s into buying a more modern, "generic" car. She always regretted selling her Beetle

Just shows that you don't have to isolate a subject to make it stand out...nice capture.

Looking at this picture again I note the robust rope and big hook tied onto the front bumper of the old Beetle. I wonder of the owner is a pessimist .

Pessimist, I think not. He probably uses it to pull Land Rovers out of the ditch!
