Potomac Sunset: Violet Winter
Photographer: Deborah A. Powell
Location: Cobb Island, Maryland
Took this photo on Christmas Eve from my aunt and uncle's backyard at sunset after it snowed. The sunsets there are always so vibrant and beautiful, and this one was no exception. Luckily, it was a still night with very little breeze, so the water was unusually calm and glasslike. As a result, the deep violet and blue sky reflected beautifully, creating the same violet and blue hues on the surface of the water.
