When Autofocus Goes Wrong - Picture

I have a window on the world, and that particular night it looked rather different.

My big green chair faces out that window, to its right, and I see the setting sun.  The setting sun that greets me and warms my face, perhaps a bit too strenuously.

That night the colors were quite pretty, so I did what I always do.  I grabbed my camera and took a few pictures.

Thinking that I'd be able to convince the camera to focus on the distant scene, I found myself mistaken.

When I looked at this picture I thought it looked like someone set the world alight and instead of going to help put the fire out, I sat watching it burn.

Of course with the captions, it made it look like one of those dark book cover arts you'd see in a Science Fiction section of a library. 

So instead of focusing on the palm tree and the distant sunset, my camera decided to take a picture of the screens and the window pane.   Interesting shot though.  Sometimes, Photography for Photography's sake is well enough.

Even if it looks like a bad novel from the 1980s.
