It seems like the sky is just so amazing this time of year...
...especially as I'm driving home from work.
My drive home is a short one...only about seven miles or so...
...and I sometimes find myself pulling off the road to capture the spectacular views.
Like here, across from this water tower...
...where I sat in the parking lot of a nursing home...oohing and ahhing...and snapping away.
Today, as I was looking back through some of my older photos,
I realized that it was in January of 2014 when I posted about another particular drive home.There must be something extra special about the atmosphere in January.
This next group was taken on my way to church a couple of Sunday evenings ago.
I followed this sun dog for a while until I was able to find a place to stop.
I remembered the cemetery on the hill with the big cross so I pulled in there.
Seeing the sun dog was a thrill and I got there just before it faded away,
You can still see it if you look to the lower right of the photo.
I drove back down toward the entrance, knowing I better be heading on to church,
and when I looked back up one more time as I sat in my car at the foot of the hill,
the view outstretched before me nearly took my breath away.
