Christmas sunset

The sun was starting to set at around three o’clock on Christmas Eve.

The day’s shortest day has been and gone – but someone forgot to tell the sun. I didn’t mind as I was out testing my new SLR camera…

May all your skies be beautiful ones!

  1. I like the rows of trees and the clouds. Did anyone swim in the icy water on that shortest day?

    Merry Christmas from a very hot and balmy Australia. My son fell in the canal, and he said, it is wonderful, having come from a cooler New Zealand.

  4. I love the picture. You are really good.

    Thanks for being willing to send a card. I couldn’t find your email address (probably because I have blogspot and it can be ridiculous). If you can, send it and I’ll send the information.

    Merry Christmas!

  28. What a beautiful sunset! And it sounds like Kriis Kringle was good to you. (I too would have thought that you already had a professional camera as your pictures have always been so lovely.)
