A City Sunset

Tuesday, January 5th, 2010

A few days ago I went to the grocery store and this was the view from my car in the parking lot. There are man-made intrusions in this view (wires and buildings) but the color is lovely in spite of it all.


I don’t like winter’s cold, and I don’t like snow. Lansing has a lot of total cloudcover, particularly in December. Any day which brings me color or light, is most appreciated.

I thought I would share one of the lovely things of winter. I hope you like it, too.
