Early last week, during the spell of dry, cold weather we've been having, I took these photos from our kitchen window. The sun rises just after 8:30 a.m. at this time of year, and goes back down at 5:00 p.m.
I think I first took the middle photo, and then a few close-ups of the scene. It's been a treat to see so much sunshine in December this year. Today it is predicted to be cloudy and gray, but there's still little or no rain in the 10-day forecast.
