Sunset and Sweetgum

Another winter sunset, this time on Tuesday evening, January 13. Actually, the sky was even more spectacular a few minutes earlier--pink, salmon and mauve against shades of gray--but I didn't get the camera until the light was more faded. Nevertheless, it was still impressive even then. The image below includes the silhouette of a sweetgum tree (Liquidambar styraciflua) that's still holding its fruits--and shedding them sporadically with each windstorm.
