My Amazing Commute II: Burn and Rave at Close of Day

Pssst! Follow Me on Twitter


Winter sunsets have a subtle quality that I prefer over their summer counterparts. Instead of a bursting of hues across the spectrum of reds, oranges, purples and yellows, winter sunsets seem to juxtapose two colors and just let them have at it.

I was walking to the Summit train station, returning to New York for the night and found myself in the midst of a near-perfect winter sunset. Thankfully I had the Sony RX-100 with me, so I was able to take a few shots before the two minute window of light completely disappeared. 



The warm orange hues of the illuminated road contrast just beautifully with the cirrus clouds in the nighttime sky. You can even see St. Teresa's in the small opening between the trees.



Just as I was putting my camera away I saw a plane flying across the near-nighttime tableau. It looked so tiny against a cirrus sky that seemingly could swallow it whole. I was able to capture it against a well-lit section of the sky. Content with the shots, I took my train back to New York.
