You know you've got it good when sunsets are a distraction in your life. I must have taken 20 or so shots of the sunset on Saturday, January 3rd. Here's the one I am presenting you with:
Every so often, the sun creates a shaft of light upwards as it meets the horizon; this is not the camera playing tricks because it's really there. I can't help but be mesmerized every time this happens. The wind was blowing the fine snow across the fields, giving the surface an almost lunar quality. It was freezing cold again, about -15C, so this shot was taken through the window, hence the little bit of reflection in the glass. Next time I'll don a winter coat and some boots and fumble with mitten'd hands for a cleaner shot. Promise.
