Winter Sky

We seem to be flying more the past week, taking brief flights almost every day (I’ll probably post some aerial pix soon). Partly it’s the wonderful Winter air. Like all planes, Tripp loves cool air. Like many aviators, we like the light this time of year. Like many Santa Barbarian spectators, we’re also enjoying the season’s colorful sunsets. Last night I snapped these during our walk.

Because it’s not quite full, the moon rose before sunset and was well above the mountains when the colors found their way through openings on the horizon to paint shapes here and there.

Over neighborhood windows illuminated in the flickering TV blue, this silent show played briefly outside. So many miracles around us go unnoticed.

As we walked up a nearby hill, the sun’s last flash of red from beyond the horizon hung over holiday lights in cloud strokes painted by invisible fingers of air.

Then red softened to allow subtler tones back into the sky as all color began to drain toward a Winter’s night dotted with holiday displays tilting hearts from the afterglow of 2013 toward another year.

  2. You sure can bring out the beauty of the night lights, best views I have seen in a long time. The nurse that visits me a couple times a week, said today I was doing real good, she listen To the lung and said it sounds pretty good and no water build up. I take asparagus drink two Times day, I’m working on the mix to try and get the taste to taste better. I still have to use Oxygen all the time, my shortness of breath is getting better. I want to wish you two a Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year. Love. Claude

  3. Divineness moon and sunset shots, John! I’ve been spying our moon each early evening myself. Just tonight, I parked my beach chair next to my parked car, and watched her weave her way through the clouds. Yes, miracles abound. Monica~
