Winter Sunset

They call the stunning moments at days end “Golden Hour.”

Nature sure can put on a show.

“A kind of golden hour one remembers for a lifetime… everything was touched by magic.” Margaret Bourke-White

    That is gorgeous as always. The beautiful moment of sunset captured perfectly. Stunning

    The warm golden light at the end of the day is the ultimate show of God’s pallet. To catch that moment of splendor is a paint-walk on the intense side! You have successfully shown it here, Peter. Kudos!

    Beautiful. I enjoy all of your work. So glad I was watching Antiques Roadshow when they did a promo for your show. Seeing your talent when you paint inspired me to go to a “Sip and Paint” class.

    A beauty of a painting. I look forward to Mondays to see your new work!

    Beautiful, and thank you for sharing Winslow Homer’s quote. My thoughts exactly. Where was this lovely sunset?

      Thanks Judy, this is here where I live in Middletown Springs, just south of town on Rt 133.

    This is lovely Peter . I get these gorgeous sun sets from my deck in Low Hampton . up on a hill.
    view is terrific from here , you should try it sometime.

    Beautiful picture. One of my fondest childhood memories were my parents taking us to Vermont n a summer vacation, and was in awe how beautiful the mountains were!! The smell of Vermint s wonderful from all the pines up there. Living on Long Island, NY we do not get to see such gorgeous mountains like Vermont. We love visiting your state ❤️

    I love how you have gently mirrored the sunset sky with subtle violets in mid-ground trees, and with yellow-tan tones of ochre in the bales of hay. Nor can I fail to mention and admire that glowing most-distant mountain that draws my eye into the depths of the landscape, and my soul into deep introspection.

    • Peter Huntoon

      Thanks Brian! That distant mountain had to be just right. It took a couple of tries but I think I got it. 🙂

    Beauty and the Bales…. wonderful colors and inclusion of multiple shapes/detail. Winter is awaiting to burst w/ new growth.

    Hi Peter, in January we had only a few hours sunshine in Duisburg. We missed sunsets like yours. But in hard times we always we are lucky to know your blog “A Day in Vermont” and so the sunshine returns in our hearts.

    Oh, my last comment is not correct.
    Sorry, but I think you understand my intention.

    I love the quotes about the warm glow of the sunset. It happens no matter where you see the sun setting. Sometimes there is a warm glow in the morning here in south Florida, too.
