364 at Missouri River

Fairway to Freeway

Many years ago I had a friend whose house backed to a wide open corridor of land. Someone from the neighbourhood had built a sand volleyball court and even a three-hole golf course (complete with those red ball-washer towers) in this wide corridor. But those things are gone now... because the land was owned by MoDOT and now there's a ten-lane freeway in the corridor. You've seen it before, and you see it again now as the picture of the day.

kamoranakrre really did take this picture late at night--light pollution just does a good job simulating a sunset (or sunrise, since this view is looking eastbound).
