Skywatch Friday: sun on trees

Kay Davies photo, December, 2012

Several times every winter, when I see the lowering sun shining on the bare trees across the way, I just have to grab my little camera to try to capture some of that wonderful warm light.
They're always the same trees, of course, the ones I can see from the window by my computer desk that make me think "Ooh, picture!" and the same ones I can see from the porch when I run out in slippered feet to snap a shot.
So here we are, in southeastern Alberta, where the big prairie sky is full of surprises. Today it is sunshine again, as it was the day I took this picture. The temperature is hovering right around the freezing mark right now, and the dog has been outside rolling in the snow. All's right with our world.

I love the look of the sunlight on those trees. Our dogs are loving rolling in the snow, too.

Super! It's not that cold where I am yet, but it's getting there. I've really enjoyed your fabulous photos! You are quite the adventurer!

Thanks for visiting and enjoying my Jumping Dolphins! I've been trying to paint every day to improve my skill and, of course, have fun!

Merry Christmas!

I love the image you paint here. I hope you feel well for Christmas (and I hope your pup gets something good in her stocking, because she's a very good girl :)

The sun on the naked branches gives such a beautiful effect !

Count me in as another person that is also attracted to the light of the golden hour.

I have an okayish view out of the window (some houses and some proper view), but I have to look through very dirty windows. I might have to wash them once the temperatures stay above zero!

The trees are gilded in sunlight -- lovely. Merry Christmas.

Indeed, all is right with the world. What is, just is. We do what we can to alleviate pain and suffering, but cannot solve all of the world's problems. I work with one client at a time.
None this week, as I have my cold I don't want to share.
