Sky Watch #121: December 11 Sky

23 Dec

December 11, Saturday, at the height of Christmas shopping, I managed to photograph the sky while driving from point A to point B. Not one single store or mall carries what is in your list. So it was a day of going from one store/mall to another to tick names off our list.

It was a day of heavy fog. You can see we still have our fall colors in early December.

I would like to tell you this was on our way home, but it’s not. This is us driving to another store and it’s already sunset. We’ve been shopping a long time 🙂

Happy Holidays to one and all. May your celebrations be joyful and safe.
