Blue skies and fog are an unusual combo, but that’s the weather along California’s Central Coast at this time of year. Yesterday around 5 .p.m. I walked into a sunny drizzle. Nice.
The Color of Dusk
Took this photo of dusk yesterday from our side yard 18 minutes (5:52 p.m.)after sunset. Make no mistake about it, we are in winter mode with storms of snow, ice or rain affecting daily life, but at least the days are getting longer.
