My Favorite Winter Sunsets in Lake Arrowhead, California

As much as I love summer and the beautiful summer sunsets, there’s just something about the sky in the winter…

The cloudy, yet vibrant and colorful sunsets over the lake reflect a little bit differently when there’s snow around… I can only liken it to a white board/bounce reflector I used as a photographer’s assistant in my early twenties, and how as soon as it caught the sunlight right, it bounced and reflected the subject’s eyes to a crystal clear vibrancy, allowing every detail to shine. I think that must be what the snow does for the sunsets because they’re incredible.

I truly love where I live. It’s an amazingly wonderful feeling that I didn’t really know existed. I feel lucky every time I look out my windows, every time go outside, or step into nature, and feel the life surround me – engulf me, I become part of it, and it’s beautiful. As much as I miss the palm trees, which are still my favorites for so many reasons, the sense of gratitude I feel every day I’m here, is really something to live for.

Seek it out and find your version of it if you can. It’s so worth it.

When I drive Waterman Canyon, referred to here as “The Rim” or The 18, I almost ALWAYS pull over at one point or another to take photos of the sunset. Many times I schedule my trips down the mountain near sunset so that I can drive back up into the beauty of it. The really only time it’s not beautiful is when it’s foggy… and then I avoid it like the plague.
