|The lights come up as the sun goes down.|
I spend a lot of time viewing sunsets in winter. If winter has any redeeming quality for me, it's those sunsets. I will stand outside in the cold, wrapped in a heavy coat, hat, mittens, and scarf, facing toward the southwest and view the often brief but colorful sunset of the day.
|Golden glow of a sunset reflecting off a silo.|
|Sun kissing the tops of downtown buildings. Notice the snow hanging out on the north side of a building.|
|An eastern sunset???|
|The yellow bands on this picture were actually a mint green color when I took this picture. |
|Look how the color changes around the tree.|
I immediately grabbed my camera and went to the door, opened it, leaned out in my nightgown, and snapped a couple of photos. While I was doing this, the cold air rushed in the door and began setting up shop in every nook and cranny of my apartment. When I finally closed the door, there was this delicious feel throughout my apartment. Crispy, cool and fresh winter air that was so invigorating! Of course, shortly after this the furnace came on and warmed the place up, but the fresh air felt and smelled so great throughout my apartment and bouncing off my skin. It made me long for spring!!!
