Late afternoon views from our front windows

Sunset comes early here, about 4 pm. But the angle of the light and where the sun sets provides perfect sunset views in clear weather.  Today had quite a bit of sun, so we had scattered clouds at sunset.

The progression was lovely from our front room.

My gardening companion went out on a short skiing excursion around our landscape, but I was still a bit chilly from our mid-day ski excursion to the frozen bay in Rimouski (there were folks out in their ice-fishing camps and para-gliding sliding skiers -- a sport I didn't know existed) and a further ski on the trail beyond - a familiar one in summer.

So I stayed inside and admired the transition towards sunset through our windows.

this view of our shed and the farm beyond is one of my favorites -- winter and summer
Happily, after we were home for a couple of hours, the wood stove has now heated up the entire house very nicely and it's now quite toasty.  The high was around 8° F today, so cold outside!


  1. Such beautiful sunsets. It looks like a nice place inside watching the day.
    Stay warm.

    1. It’s intesting — today it’s about 16°, but without wind, so felt really quite OK when we were out in late morning skiing. I never would have imagined that it could be comfortable at that temperature, even with the right gear. And it’s great inside!

  2. Great view from your cozy cabin.
