There’s no question winter has a firm grip on KELOLAND. Temperatures are way below normal, the snow cover is deep and getting deeper. But take the time to look, and you’ll find some scenery no other season can deliver.
We begin Tuesday morning looking at the wonderful light pillars over Sioux Falls with the moonlight shining bright across the sky. The pillars are different colors based on the lights below in the downtown area. The power of the moonlight often gets a boost in the winter when the sky is absent of dust and haze.
That extra light really made for a great contrast when the clouds rolled in around 6 a.m. The higher clouds allowed some of the light to shine through as the light changed to more of a yellow color as sunrise began. An ever changing post card of beauty.
You can see the majestic snow flying at Great Bear in the subzero weather Tuesday morning. The scenes of ice and snow on the trees covered the Black Hills as well at Terry Peak. The north also shared in on the winter scenery, with the moonlight reflecting off the deep snow cover in the Eureka area.
So remember, before you dwell on the ugly side of winter, we can still find plenty of prettiness in this season before it ends.
