More winter sunsets

I spent some time today gardening, harvesting greens and pea shoots (in front of a low 20°F forecast) and tidying up the mulch edges on the paths and in front of our house in the mountains.  I've put thin plastic over rivercane hoops over some of the greens, but that's more of an experiment than real protection.

There were wonderful views along the French Broad River on an after-lunch walk, and the lichen-covered trees were luminous in the mid-afternoon light.

But, what I saw through the small front window and was able to (sort of) catch in the camera in the late afternoon today was more brilliant sunset color.

The clear winter air, combined with cloud streaks made for another magical sunset.

  1. Winter sunsets are so dramatic and when one lives surrounded by trees they are even more wonderful to finally be able to see and appreciate! Love your captures. gail

Please share your thoughts. I enjoy hearing from fellow nature observers, as well as whomever else drops by.
