Shadows On The Sky

I really thought my captured lights would be Christmas lights, but after driving home from the most disastrous Santa experience ever we ran into this sunset.

The sun was making the most perfect play of light and shadows across the fields of snow.

Unfortunately, my windows are dirty, so I braved the cold and a rapidly moving car to take this photo. Shane joked that somehow, I was going to drop the camera out the window, but miraculously, I held onto it.

It was totally worth the risk to capture that gorgeous vertical sunbeam. I suppose it's not really holiday related, but it is definitely magical.

Absolutely gorgeous. I have a few like this that I ended up making into posters & putting up around the house. Something that never ceases to capture my awe.

I'm glad you risked the cold. But that gorgeous sunset may even have looked good through a dirty window. You could just tell everyone it was your special windshield texture.
