We could use some sunshine down here. It looks like a full week of clouds and fog ahead of us — but at least we’re not freezing.
Linda, we are cloudy here too. The clouds kept us from freezing and I don’t mind.
Although… It was 20 degrees and so very clear on Wednesday night! Great for stargazing if properly bundled up. So I didn’t mind the cold so much between 10PM and 12 AM. And, NO, I did not stay out the whole time. I just went out for 10 or 15 min. views, then ran back in to thaw and repeat!
We are supposed to warm up here as well for the next week and then we plunge overnight from the 60s to the 30s for daytime temperatures! 😯
Or the weatherman could change his mind by then. He often does. 😀
Late light lingering is indeed one essential interaction we have with light.
Steve, I am starved for it in winter. This view had me dropping what I was doing to grab my camera and save it. I have many and I use them for backdrops on my computer screen. It helps.
I’ve read about seasonal affective disorder, known as SAD. At least you’re not living way up north.
Nix on the far North! Too cold! I would hate to be SAD and freezing too.
The thing is – as you mentioned earlier – it’s usually clear skies & sunny when it’s REALLY cold; ) Totally HATE damp, cold and cloudy:/
Very pretty and quite dramatic!
Thank you Nancy!
I’m weird but those trees look like springtime to me. It looks like tiny little buds on the ends of the branches. Like I said, I’m weird.
No, not weird, Anita. It is all just a trick of the light at the end of the day. But, if you are dreaming of spring then I understand about seeing spring buds on the branch tips. I imagine all those old oaks are dreaming of spring too!
Calm Before the Storm?
Nope. Calm lighting before the cloud cover completely moved in. It acted like a blanket and actually warmed us up! From 20 deg. to almost 15 degrees warmer the next night. Ahhh… what a difference some cloud cover makes.
Thanks, Pam! It is rare to be in the right place at the right time when the sun slides in at the end of rainy, gloomy day. The quality of the light is always amazing.
