Winter Sunset Beauty

One of the greatest things about winter is the sky. The cooler weather makes for drier and thus a clearer sky. The colder the temperature the less moisture the air can hold. That is why the large, fat snowflakes fall when the temperature is around freezing and why a cold mountain snow in February is more like tiny grains of sand.

January/February nights during the new moon are the best for viewing the constellations—I just wished I had the photography skills [and equipment] to capture the nighttime sky.

But today my handy iPhone helped me capture the beautiful sunset of the winter sky with the “fairy castle” in the distance.
