Sapsucker Woods Sunset

05 November 2008 - Sunset over the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, Ithaca, NY.

Now that the clocks have fallen back an hour I'll wind up leaving work in the dark for the next few months. For the time being it's only almost dark, meaning we occasionally witness a sky painted with broad strokes of orange, red, violet, and pink as the sun sets over Sapsucker Woods. An additional benefit: I watched a Northern Saw-whet Owl fly across the road as I left the parking lot.

That meeting of light and dark is truly a magical moment.

Oh it is getting darker every day until we reach December 23, then we can hope for more light. You made a nice capture.

During this time of year when the earth is shutting down in the northern hemisphere, I always want to shut down too. I should have been a hibernating species.

Beautiful sunset.

Beautiful shot, I love when the sun is reflecting colours to the clouds.
