December Sunset

Oak trees

winter sunset between the oak trees

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.
