From the Earth upwards is about 10 miles to the stratosphere, & short wave blue light scatters giving our sky its bluish tint. by late afternoon, it is about 20 miles to the horizon plus the same 10 miles to the stratosphere. Only the long wave red light can penetrate this larger distance, so sunsets are oranges and reds, such as here giving these snowy branches an ironic "fiery" cast. This light also travels close to the Earth's surface & through more dust which adds to the reddish glow. winter sunris
Christmas... millions of small twinkling lights ... snowflakes flittering around in a light breeze, stillness of the world in the quiet dark of winter... love! I wish I lived where it snows!!

I can see myself in an old two story cottage with a huge yard and county style gate in front. I love large trees for privacy and in the winter it looks like this... Cozy Cottage... Filled with warmth love and organization... But My next home will have a Hot Tub and Swimming pool!!!

Sweden. With the sun rising, a soft layer of white powder lies untouched and smooth on the ground. It also rests on the branches and trunks of the tall, thin trees, gathering in mounds and layers. The scene is tranquil, a place to be peacefully solitary. forests, wood, winter trees, sunset, sunris, snow, winter wonderland, winter solstice, light
