Late Fall Sunsets

The sun is now setting before 5:30 in eastern Ohio with approximately 1 minute of daylight being lost per day unitl the winter solstice.  Winter is a great time of year for sunset pictures due to colder temperatures in the atmosphere that cause tiny ice crystals to form.  These crystals refract sunlight making the sky picturesque under the right conditions.  In other cases, cold dry polar air can clear the sky of haze and clouds allowing for crisp landscape shots and crystalline skies.
