January Sunsets

1/7/13 sunset

My eyes are trained to the sky these days. I eagerly await these pretty winter sunsets.


They can be quite spectacular, I find. In the winter we get some beautiful cloud cover, so the sunsets are wonderful.


Sometimes I catch them with my camera. I rush to the end of my street, where we have a big school field.


Or I shoot from my doorstep. To me, these moments are peaceful and promising. If you are patient, you get to see a whole story of color unfold before your eyes. It’s like a reward at the end of the livelong day, if you take the time to notice it.

Yesterday evening

Sometimes I pull my car over to take a photo. My kids think I’m nutty but it’s worth it.


I love this one I took at my parents’ house. Their daffodils are coming up, so spring is on its way. Just thought you might like/need to know.
