This absolutely unedited and unprocessed photo (except frame and name added in Photoshop) shows how clear winter dusks can be. See it larger,
The day was one of 30-50 miles per hour winds, that brought with them wind chills on top of the cold weather moving through. But what the wind brought in coldness, it took away in pollution from the air.
I braved the wind to walk out onto the beach at my home in East Patchogue and catch the most amazing sunset colors — made more spectacular by the clarity of the air.
The plane even further in the distance and the birds in the air all fought the wind, which was gusty enough to almost make me fall over from the boardwalk railing I had taken some pictures standing on.
On a clear day you can see forever. On a clear night you can see for eternity. On a windy day, you can see where the magic of winter sunsets lies.
I hope you enjoy the warmth of this cold sunset photo of November 28, Thanksgiving Weekend, 2009 in my blessed home by the sea and may we all have even more blessings to be thankful for next year.
