Winter Sunset

The other afternoon when we were coming home I saw this sunset and I love the colors so ran and took a picture of it. It didn't turn out all that good, but you can get an idea of how pretty it is. This time of year when it is mostly cold and everything is brown from all the cold it is hard to find something pretty enough outside to photograph. I personally dislike winter. I don't really like much about it at all. I dislike cold weather for any reason. Since we have already had way more cold weather than normal I am really very sick and tired of the cold. Well I am glad that I live where it isn't as cold as some places, I personally would rather we didn't get cold at all. SO...I am seeing the pretty sunset and they are prettier in the winter when it is cold. So I am trying to concentrate on something that is pretty instead of the bitter cold, and ugly brown everywhere. I am sure one day Spring will come back but at this point it doesn't seem like it. January has just been a loooong cold month. Last year at this very time I was on the Disney cruise and I am thinking that I may need to make that a yearly event. It certainly helps to get through the winter if you can spend at least a few days in a tropical place. So hopefully as we approach the end of January with another freezing night ahead I can look at this picture and remember that this too shall pass. One day we will agian have Spring and even Summer. Yes we will, I just have to keep telling myself that.

Thats very pretty - I think winter sunsets are so beautiful. Well, not compared to sunsets in the Keys, but whateva! Your talk about "dislike" of the winter was cute because Casey says "strongly dislike" quite often because we try not to use the "H" word (hate). Anyway, off the main subject, which is the beautiful sunset! Glad you found something pretty on those brown cold days. See, that is where I do prefer snow; the white is much prettier than the dead brown.

I "dislike" the dead brown, but I sure love these warm sunny days. And are beginning to see a few things sprouting. SPRING is coming.
