Tiny Window

We have a tiny window in our bathroom that opens on the Winter sunsets. Watching tonight’s show, it wasn’t different enough to motivate me toward the camera so I just stood and watched. Then suddenly just before it all ended, the horizon lit up magnificently against the deepening blue.

As it faded, I realized this is the last natural color we’ll see today. Luckily during these long nights we have lots of holiday lights to enjoy, eh? I also pondered how the sunset itself is a little window: into what’s going on beyond the horizon. If it’s cloudy there, the sunset ends early. If it’s clear way out into the Pacific the light show lasts late with deep blue above.
