"I could not resist stylizing this set of five photos capturing the setting sun diffused by a light cloud cover on the first day of the astronomical winter; Saturday, December 21, 2013. Photo 1 was shot at 3:44 PM and photo 5 at 4:27 as the sun set below the tree line. — at Route 32, north of West Friendship, MD. "
