Shortest Day

As we drove home from our escape to the mountains this evening, we noted the throng of pedestrians walking onto the Brooklyn Bridge. The setting sun was the draw. That huge setting sun was a blaze of orange, just sitting at the waters edge. This made for specular views on approach to the bridge while driving. I have never noticed the sun this size before. Too busy not looking up, I guess. I’m not sure what caused it, but it was a sight to behold three days before Christmas!

  1. I feel you on this one. I’ve been experimenting with fiction, and recently wrote about something I call a Pueblo Sky. That’s when the sun rises in certain conditions, and the sky is turquoise with pink clouds streaking the horizon. It only lasts for a few moments, usually in the early morning of late fall, when the weather is perfect for walking off the coming winter depression. I made the name from the Pueblo Indians, who used a lot of turquoise stones in their jewelry designs.
