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.
Wonderful shot Purdey beautiful composed and yes... the timing was perfect!
Thanks Palmina but it was Nawitka's idea :-)
Hi Purdey and friends: Summer solstice project: take photos plus or minus 3 days June 21, 2008.
Any particular tag Nawitka? How about 'summer solstice 2008'? Purdey
