Winter light

The rain has blown through, bringing colder air and freezing temperatures back, at last, to the mountains.

The combination of clear, dry air, pushing out last bits of clouds gave a luminous quality to the evening light.

 My iPhone didn't do a great job capturing what I saw (especially in the other direction, at sunset), and I'm realizing that I really need a replacement for my ancient digital Nikon D100 SLR, too, if I really want to keep getting those out-of-the-ordinary images.


  1. I think your second photo is very unique with sunlight striking the trees against a shadowy background. We had a foggy damp day here.

  2. Thanks, Ray, for that nice comment. These two photos did capture some of that remarkable light that I saw!
