Frozen Lake this Evening

Sometimes I do things at the last minute, like posting one more set of photos just before midnight, or feeding the birds just before sunset. When I went out at 5:30 this afternoon to fill a bird feeder, I took my camera because the sky was pretty. The deepening colors of dusk were highlighted by glowing jet trails. We live under the route that planes from Dulles Airport take to head west so we see many planes overhead and their vapor trails. 

I saved this second image in monochrome for Black and White Weekend. They spotlighted my photo of two geese from last week. I'm also linking to Sundays in My City.

This final image is in color but the palette is limited. The lake is partially frozen, with snow resting on ice.


  1. Classic black and white winter photo. In fact, I like them all, particularly the glowing sky in your first photo.

  2. Beautiful sky capture! And the geese on the frozen lake is pretty too. Have a happy Monday!

  3. Wonderful photos! The sky is breathtaking!

  4. Amazing shots, particularly that first one.

  5. Great photos! The first is my favorite too. :)

  6. I still see some soft spots on the lake. If it keeps being cold, there won't be any unfrozen sposts left.
