Winter Sunset

We've just come through 13 days of temperatures below 20°F (-7°C). In fact, a week ago, it was -13°F (-25°C) when we got up in the morning. Brrrrr!

Although Doug and I are perfectly content to stay home during these cold days, there are times when going out can't be avoided. When we ventured out to run some errands on Saturday, we were rewarded with a lovely winter sunset.

We're currently experiencing a bit of a warm-up, for which we're grateful. But, at this time of year, we know it's only a temporary reprieve.

  1. Your photos are beautiful, but the temperatures are much too low for me. We've had very cold weather as well, but not quite as bad as what you've endured. I'm ready for Spring!

    1. The cold is challenging, but the snow is pretty. And the snow stayed around much longer than usual due to the cold temperatures. So I guess cold does have its benefits. ;)

  2. Same here, Linda.... VERY VERY cold --but we are experiencing temperatures above freezing right now (at least for a few days).... Your sunset pictures are absolutely gorgeous. You ought to frame one of those.... I love them.

    Hugs,

    1. Thanks, Betsy. I didn't feel that my photos did justice to the sunset, but I'm glad you enjoyed them. You know how that is...the majesty of a sunset is seldom fully captured in a photograph.

  3. I can't imagine how frigid it was in your neck of the woods, Linda. Even here in the foothills it was very cold with temperatures down to a single digit. We're tickled for the change and looking forward to 52°F today.

    Your photos are really gorgeous, and I love seeing mare's tails in the sky.
    Have a great week!

    1. Temperatures that cold aren't really common here, although they do occur with some regularity. And it does make the snow last longer. We're expecting a couple of days with temperatures in the fifties this week, too. Hard to believe. I had to look up "mares tails" since I wasn't familiar with that phrase...well, not as it related to clouds anyway. ;)

  4. Some pretty skies in this last week. I was deep in the woods when it set last night and had to use my footprints to get back to my car. That last shot has a sundog in it

    1. When you're out in the woods in the winter, you need to keep the early nightfall in mind, don't you? I'm glad you made it safely back to your car last night.

  5. The colours of the sunset are magnificent, Linda, beautiful photos. I can tell you that -25°C sounds like real winter to me, I haven't experienced such low temperatures yet!

    1. Thanks, Ruth. We've warmed up a lot here, but we know it won't last. ;)

  7. Oh my, Linda! The coldest we've experienced over that time period was -7 F. Thursday it is to be in the 60's. Then another cold snap for the weekend with more snow predicted for Sunday. Your sunset pictures are gorgeous. I love all of the scenery pictures you do. xx

    1. Well, Dianna, when you get below zero, six degrees doesn't make much difference. We can just agree that it was cold! Your forecast sounds very similar to ours except that I'm not sure we'll get out of the fifties before the cold returns. Thanks so much for the sweet praise of my pictures.

    1. Thanks, Kim. Temperatures in the teens in Georgia ARE cold! And y'all had a heavy snow this winter, too. I think you're having more Indiana weather than we are! ;)
