Catching the right light for a photo is such a gift...sorry you are having such dark winter days. Here we get some dark ones too but also some amazing crisp bright ones. And I have to admit, much as I am not a cold weather person, that the winter sunrises and sunsets in this area are the most beautiful of the whole year. The days are all too short in the winter though. Even now, buy 3:30 or 4 in the afternoon the sun is at such a sharp angle getting ready to set. I miss the long days of spring and summer...
you can be happy to have at least beautiful sunrises and sunsets, although the days are short. here in novembertime, the starting winterseason, you can`t see the sun, sometimes some weeks or more. thats why the most depressions start in that time and i believe more suicides than any other month. i enjoy it in a way, that mystic nature feeling, but of course i miss the sun too. if we go to our mountain-range the alps and you walk up high you can have the best view and sun looking far over a sea of fog, which covers the lower regions. But it is a 4 hours drive to come there
I had no idea you had such dark winters in your country. That must be so difficult. I do see how some days it could also give you that mystic nature sense of awe though too but everyone needs the sun. Winter depression is an issue here too but thankfully I don't hear about suicides related to it. (It's kind of an issue for me, particularly when the roads are snow covered and dangerous, but I get panicky rather than suicidal.)
Looking over the sea of fog from the mountains sounds just magnificent. Well worth the long drive if you can spare the time
Today, after a gray snowy day yesterday it is absolutely brilliant outside. I took a few pics just from my windows this morning and I'll post them. If the light is right later in the day, I may go out for a walk and take some wider angle shots. Everything I tried to take of the idyllic scene this morning was ruined by the overhead power lines so I would have to try to find an unobstructed view of the land.
