There are always some wonderful sunsets during the winter in this area. I think it's a combination of elevation and the slant of setting sunlight. I beheld this colorful display from my driver's seat so I was not able to record it on-site. But memory does serve me well especially for skyscapes and landscapes. I re-created the sight from memory using my new Cintiq which I have now equipped with lots more "brushes" (digital patterns) imported from my older, main desktop. Beautiful sunsets may inspire, but it's still winter, even (thankfully) without snow and ice.
