Winter sunsets

"Duh!" I thought as I went out with my camera a little earlier last night than the night before.

My favorite time of day is dusk when terrestrial objects are little more than silhouettes against the shades of darkening sky. There's something unreal-looking about the light in the sky that I like.

It seems like it is much more noticeable in the winter. I suspect it lasts longer this time of year because the sun's path through the sky is shallower than in summer so the sun lingers around the horizon longer.
