Winter Sun

Winter Sun- Christmas Star
This was taken a couple of days before Christmas when then winter sun was high in the sky and there were wonderful cloud formations being criss-crossed across the sky by contrails.  When Tom saw it he said "It's a Christmas Star".  After all the star that shone on Christmas night lit the night with the light of noon day.  The sun with its light rays fanning out does indeed remind me of what that star may have looked like.
In reality it is the winter sun; shown at noon and as high as it goes in the sky.  I am endlessly amazed and facscinated by the way light effects the way we see our world.  This day was bright and cheery and because of the rain the day before the clouds were amazing in their shapes.  Added to that the fact that we live south of the Atlanta Airport and the heavy holiday trafic with the contrails the jets left behind made for phenomenal sky panaramas.
