Another glorious sunset in Orleans County

This is generally an ugly time of the year. The snow melts and leaves a muddy wake. At the tail end of winter, the houses, front yards and community look like they have been through a battle.

Yesterday’s sunset felt like a gift. I don’t recall one more spectacular with the colors and clouds for dramatic effect. I stopped several times on my drive from Albion to Carlton. The top photo shows a field on Route 98 with a snow fence. This is south of Route 104.

The scenes are a reminder of the beauty of Orleans County.

My drive started on East Park Street, looking towards St. Joseph’s Catholic Church and the First Baptist Church.

I climbed the stairs on the Main Street lift bridge to get this photo.

This one was taken from the walkway on the bridge.

Here is one of the front of the lift bridge.

There were about a dozen deer together in the field on Route 98, south of 104. I zoomed in for this photo of six of them.

The waning sunset bathes Stillwater Road in Carlton.
