We love seeing the North Fork through your lens.

Summer is the high season on the NoFo, but the crisp skies and low sunsets of the winter are a sight to behold.

And while the morning temps are frequently below freezing, if you pay attention, you’ll notice the days are getting just a tad bit longer. Sunset is scheduled today for 4:49 p.m — which is way better than 4:26 p.m. on December 21!

See some of our favorite weekend Instagram pics below.
