Sunset is at 4:30 pm today. That's an increase of more than 35 minutes from mid-December. Consequently I have seen some gorgeous sights on my "commute" home in the afternoon. This one was after a snow squall last week. I captured it from the north end of Long Pond, known locally as "Pond's End". In the summer there would be people swimming and launching canoes, kayaks and small motor boats here. This time of year icefishermen are putting their ice shacks out.

When I'm driving to and from work, I sometimes listen to faraway AM radio stations like WBZ in Boston or WCBS in New York. The traffic reports remind me how lucky I am to be living in this beautiful place. I'll post another one tomorrow.
