Happy summer solstice (in the northern hemisphere) and winter solstice (in the southern hemisphere). Nothing says summer to me more than warm orange and hot red.


I love what alight (Kelly) writes on her post today, and, with her permission, I copy it here:

solstice happens at the same instant for everyone everywhere on Earth (warms my heart :)

here's when that instant is ...

solstice is at 23:09 universal time on june 20th

to find the time of solstice where y☼u are, go to here, then go part way down the page for y☼ur time zone

(africa and asia have a separate page, see link ^ there)

As Val says in her comment, 'Gotta love long summer nights and sunsets!'

Val is absolutely correct, except.....this was the shortest day, longest night of the our winter ;)

Winter solstice is today des. 22. The sun rises at 11:22 and sets at 15:29.

4 hrs: 7 mins: 1 sec = the amount of daylight we have in Reykjavik today. Tomorrow we'll have 15 more seconds and they will keep increasing until the summer solstice in June.

Happy winter solstice from the small rock in the middle of the Atlantic ocean called Iceland.

Solstice Symphony

As the winter winds whispered she played. At first she tentatively rubbed the strings… then as if embodied by the gold fiddling demon of peaches the sounds were determined. She splashed..........

Sol = sun - non, it is a damp, grey, day and have to say I feel that way - but perhaps a sunny picture will improve things!


Thank you Elné (Neighya) for texture

"The winter solstice has always been special to me as a barren darkness that gives birth to a verdant future beyond imagination, a time of pain and withdrawal that produces something joyfully inconceivable, like a monarch butterfly masterfully extracting itself from the confines of its cocoon, bursting forth into unexpected glory."


- Gary Zukav

Vive l'été!

Hurray for summer!

I danced in the morning when the world was begun

I danced in the moon and the stars and the sun

I was called from the darkness by the song of the earth,

I joined in the singing and she gave me birth.


It is at the darkest moments of the year when the earth is quietly resting, the nights are at their longest and the days so very short, the trees mostly stark and leafless and the skies often gloomy and grey, that Mother Nature can send us signs of hope as she did here, just two days before the winter solstice of 2010.


During a spirit lifting walk on the Staffordshire and Worcestershire canal in Wolverhampton, the winter afternoon sun cast an enchanted light onto a tranquil, snow covered scene and infused a warm, atmospheric and magical glow into the shimmering mist on the surface of the water....


The winter solstice is the turning point, the start of a new solar year, the rebirth of the sun and the beginning of the cycle of life all over again. From here, the balance shifts as darkness becomes conquered by the light, the days grow longer and the sun starts to warm the earth and bring hope once more....


Yuletide greetings to all of my contacts in the wonderful Flickr community and to anyone else who has viewed, commented on, or chosen as a favourite, any of my photographs over this past year. Once again, your kind and encouraging words and the inspirational images you share have been a huge inspiration to me and, as always, your continuing support is very much appreciated.


May we all enjoy the inspiration and magic of this time of year as our predecessors intended rather than as the occasion of commercialisation and self gain which, for too many people it has now, unfortunately, become.


I wish you all a happy and peaceful Yuletide....

It's Saint John's Eve, the traditional night for midsummer bonfires.


Two days after the solstice, when sunset reaches its maximum northern excursion (23.5 degrees) from equinox sunset.


One day before the Feast of Saint John, six months before Christmas, the opposite pole of the year.


Summer is in its full power. Fidget says that everything is golden, and Fidget knows.


a happy winter solstice

for those in the Northern Hemisphere- the days will start getting longer...

Haven't seen the sun in days now, but it's there,,. the forest knows it..

I didn't get a chance to take any photos today because my sister came to town. ^o^ So I thought I'd share an outtake from a shoot I did a few weeks ago with Solstice. I really miss the snow!!

I was so angry- a few days before Christmas I was redressing all my dolls and I had Solstice laid down on my lap (I was sitting on the floor). I leaned forward to grab something when she rolled off onto the carpet head first. You know one of her antlers broke!?!?!? Of all the times I have dropped my dolls (which is an awful lot, mind you), the time she was 4 inches off the ground is the time she breaks. >__< I superglued the antler back together, but I'm still afraid to use them!!! :(

Mt. Rainier & the Milky Way... Mt. Rainier National Park--My Happy Place :)

Early morning light on the Celebrity Solstice and Circular Quay. The view from the Harbour Bridge walkway.

I know, I know, the sun is blown out, but it's pretty darn bright.


Despite that, perhaps the photo captures some of the beauty and mystery of Winter Solstice.... ?


Note for UK viewers: That sun so reminds me of the Teletubbies !!

constellations de pierres

l’atome a un geste proche

de la poussière et du frisson


le fil écarte la brume

en arrachant le calme



la contradiction des heures

comme des vagues aveugles


un sac pourpre

quelques dentelles de sutures


et peu à peu avec le ciel

et peu à peu avant la mer


je tresse l’écriture

à la respiration des trèfles

jusqu’aux pulmonaires


des landes


me donneras-tu le cœur sauvage

pour serrer contre la nuit

la vie


le vide


de l’espace sur la racine

entre l’échancrure

la transhumance


la nudité du regard

tourné sur l’âme invisible

à blanchir des vallées


la force de l’aile

pour intensifier le solstice


de l’amour



in-stinct XI
