A December sunset

During the past few weeks, sunsets have been rare. Well, let me rephrase that: visible sunsets have been rare. We've been having a series of weather systems that keep the sky overcast most of the time. Before that, high pressure inversions kept us under a blanket of fog.

But once in a while, the fog dissipates or the clouds break and we're treated to a nice show at sunset. And these days, as we approach the winter solstice, the sun is setting earlier and earlier. Tonight, or should I say this afternoon, it will set at 17h04 (5:04 pm).


  1. Bloody fantastic - Our sky is dark but we have a full moon Walt.
    Tell me - do you have the same moon as we do????

  2. Oh yes, fantastic. One of your best (and that's saying something).

  3. Oh my, my, my. What a view!

    (Hilarious about cute little Callie dreaming about catching Bertie :))

  4. That is absolutely gorgeous. No enhancing?

  5. It's not setting until after 18h00 here.

  6. Lucky you to have something besides grey skies to observe! What a gorgeous sunset!

    Maybe it will clear up here, soon so I can see the pétanque court when I meet the club.
