sunset over bethpage golf course



























I remember thinking that it seemed way too early for the sun to be going down as I drove along round swamp road. funny name for a road eh? then the trees and their bare branches forming this wintry silhouette against this blazing sunset caught my eye and all was forgiven.

Those winter sunsets with no leaves to shield the sun can be intense! Makes a cold day look warm. Love the name 'swamp road.' Sounds rather ancient and pristine! Jerusalem Hills, Moscow, and Greensboro have all featured menorahs lately. Your restaurant scene is so festive. Makes you want to hang out there. So sparkly. Could use some homemade soup.

What a gorgeous winter sunset. I miss them all these days, since the sun sets as I'm still sitting in my east-facing office. So thanks for sharing this one!

Beautiful shot, and definitely winter-like. I think that one of the five games of golf I've played in my life was at Bethpage Golf Course.
