Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Winter

This week’s Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge theme is the season of winter. Remember you can click on each photo below for a larger view. If you like what you see, feel free to subscribe and receive nature photography updates a few times a week.

Winter in San Diego is quite different from most places in the US. It’s definitely milder but by living inland a bit (about 15 miles from the shore, past the first set of big hills), I get to enjoy more drastic changes in temperature than if I lived right by the coast. So while I can enjoy warm temperatures of 70 to 80 degrees on any given winter day, the winter nights are chilly, usually in the low 30s to 40s, and frost pays us a surprise visit many nights a winter.

I could brag and show you pictures of the warm blue skies and bold flowers we enjoy in the winter, but instead I’ll give you a taste of the cold aspect of winter here. Enjoy!

You’ll notice the frost here is more delicate and looks like a thin layer of sugar coating.

Winter in San Diego also means beautiful sunrises.

And beautiful sunsets, like this Christmas 2012 sunset.

    • Thank you, I used them to cool off here too. Most summer sunrises and sunsets aren’t very memorable, so winter is the season I’m looking forward to so I can photograph nice ones.
