I should probably look back at the historic posts as I bet I have used this title before. But, sometimes January in Connecticut is kind of bleak. Grey skies, grey trees, grey rocks, — my house is even painted grey on the outside. The winter starts seeming long this time of year and, according to the calendar, we are only one month into it. But since we had our first snow in October, many of us are feeling it should be over already. It doesn’t help that we are past the winter solstice, sunset still comes too early and the nights are too long.
However, occasionally, sunset is worth waiting for and watching. This photo was taken out my upstairs bathroom window of a beautifully developing sunset. This is the only window high enough to see the sunset well and I had to take the photo through glass. I cannot get that high on our hill from outside unless I go slogging through the snow to the top of the hill. And it was too cold and snow-deep to do that. Maybe next time.
