glory days

The sunsets have been amazing lately, this one behind a mist rising up from a field covered in snow.

My husband called me outside to see this mist, knowing I would want to take pictures. It started out all cold and grey and mysterious, and I took photos of that and turned to go back inside, but then it started getting better, changing colors, and I took more photos and turned again to go back inside, (it was cold, after all) and then I turned one last time and I saw this.

I don’t remember ever seeing sunsets like this in December. Maybe I’m just paying more attention these days, maybe it is because my husband is paying attention, as well.

Either way, there we were, my husband, my son, and I, standing outside on a cold not-yet-even-winter day, watching the sun paint the sky with the colors of summer.

Glory days.

I’m making every effort to enjoy them, while they last.

    A radiant and serene sunset, but what is more sublime is having everyone together to witness it.

    What a beautiful sunset! We saw one last night and there were a lot of people that weren’t paying attention so I said, “look at how pretty the sunset is!” And then everyone looked to say, “wow”. Have to pay attention to the little things. 🙂

    That is incredible! The mist is simply magical. I don’t know about your part of the country, but over here, winter sunsets are more spectacular than any other time of year. =)
