Winter Solstice

Posted by
Mia (Lund, Sweden) on 22 December 2017 in Cityscape & Urban and Portfolio.


21e december är vintersolståndet: årets kortaste dag och längsta natt här på jordens nordliga halvklot. Från och med torsdag kommer solen att vara uppe i några sekunder längre varje dag, vilket betyder starten på våren.

Vintersolståndet markerar det exakta ögonblicket när solens mest direkta strålar når sin sydligaste punkt söder om ekvatorn, längs Stenbocken, vid 23,5 grader sydlig bredd.

Bilden är tagen precis 21e December, igår, vid soluppgång strax innan moln kom!

Winter Solstice

21st December is the winter solstice: the shortest day of the year and longest night here on the northern hemisphere of the earth. After Thursday, the sun will be up for a few seconds longer each day, meaning the start of Spring.

The winter solstice marks the exact moment when the sun's most direct rays reach its southernmost point south of the equator, along the Capricorn, at 23.5 degrees south latitude.

The picture was taken 21st December, yesterday, at sunrise just before the clouds came!

Thank you Jacky! I can see a beautiful Cornucopia, or Horn of Plenty, in the middle. Cornucopia is a symbol which reminds us that Mother Earth provides us with everything we need to sustain and nourish ourselves. Cornucopia also symbolizes the many different roads each one of us can travel while making our choices. I can see it may be will be plenty of everything this Winter...
