The shortest day of the year in the northern hemisphere falls between the 20th and 23rd December depending on the year. In 2007 the solstice occurred on the 22nd with the period between sunrise and sunset being 7 hours 49 minutes and 40 seconds. The sun set in London at 15.54 today, 26 minutes after this picture was taken.

Perfect timing, purdey! Great photo for the Winter Solstice collection. Thank you very much!

You're welcome Nawitka! I wish I'd taken the one by Mr Amati though.
