I would like to see a revised category list also.

In looking at this photo, I am thinking it is not as late as you think. The storm closuds are overhead but some sun just before or as it goes down is showing on the cab...........

Was the photo taken in low light? I didn't check the EXIF data but the feel of the image fits the bill.

I am sure it is, but look at the shadow on the cab. What I am saying is the sun was still up, maybe not much, but it was

That could also be his flash, car lights since it is on the road, I see street lamps, or could be the sun, still fits the bill.

With all the discussion about wording I'm not sure if the first one fits the bill but I'll whore in a few extra fews regardless. The second one should feel right at home.
