The Winter Solstice

"Winter solstice occurs on the shortest day and longest night of the year, when the sun's daily maximum elevation in the sky is the lowest." (Wikipedia)

It is a beautiful mid winter day here. We had a snowfall yesterday so there is snow on the ground and the temperature is -2 degrees celcius so not too frigid.

We are enjoying some holiday socializing. We had my aunt and uncle over for coffee earlier this afternoon and then we are off to meet some friends for lattes at the Pink Cherry.

The kids at I took a walk mid afternoon. It was the kind of light that only comes when the sun is so low in the sky and diffused by clouds. Quite perfect for picture taking, really.

Happy Winter Solstice!
