Usually, I prefer the sunrises and sunsets of winter to those of summer. That’s due in part to the forest blocking my best views of them. Another factor that’s perhaps more important is that summer skies here in Pennsylvania are often veiled by the haze of humidity. The haze mutes the sunset, and they just aren’t as pretty unless the air is crisp.
Last evening a brief rain shower right before sunset cleared the sky of fog and haze long enough to produce a really nice summer sunset over the Appalachians.
