I took this a couple of days after the first snow when it was nice and cold out. I have no idea why I use the words nice and cold in the same sentence but I just did. We did not get much snow last winter and what you see in the picture is the first snow of 2012 which left almost a foot of snow in these parts. Winter sunsets are kind of fun. They tend to be colorful and the color lasts for awhile. The sunlight is week. In the summer I never would have gotten by with having the sun behind a try like I did in this shot. The summer sun is too bright and would ruin the shot. The trees are Oak trees. I have always called them pin oak. They have long branches and I have to say they are gorgeous but then I have hardly met a tree that I didn’t like.
