On a Snowy Evening

I love winter sunsets.  They are the cool, crisp pastels that remind me of watercolor paintings.  A couple of days ago I drove out to DeKalb for a delivery and was delighted to watch the sun set over the cornfields.  Of course, going 80 odd miles an hour means no picture taking.  I did stop on the back porch tonight, though, and managed to take this...

That's a sliver of moon in the left corner.  It's about 15 degrees out, which is pretty cold for December, but gives us a crystalline night sky.  Put your long underwear on and go for a walk.  The snow makes the world quiet and serene.
