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.

After having fun with two flat tires on the Alaska Hwy. yesterday, I was returning late from Alaska, and searching for a midnight shot emblematic of the solstice, and was quite happy to find this, which I think will do.

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!

"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

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.


Vive l'été!

Hurray for summer!

After my trip to Heligan I decided to drive over to the North Coast and take in a Summer Solstice Sunset, it was a long day but worth it in the end, there were quite a few togs around this part of the coast, I reckon they must have known something I didn't! ;)

The summer solstice is like a perfection of thought.


To follow that beautiful season... Summer....Filled with the air with a dreamy and magical light, and the beautiful landscape it offer.


We need to be out there and unite the nature.


Have a wonderful summer. :)

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!!! :(

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

This is my contribution to the day of's from a couple of summers ago at the Redondo Beach Pier in Southern CA. Cheers everyone and happy summer!

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 !!

I sometimes wonder if I raised an arsonist in the family! My daughter who now lives in an apartment arrived with scrap wood, asking if she could burn it in my garden. The fact that it is the winter solstice and the shortest day of the year is purely coincidental - I think!


The Pagan celebration of Winter Solstice (also known as Yule) is one of the oldest winter celebrations in the world.

Ancient people were hunters and spent most of their time outdoors. The seasons and weather played a very important part in their lives. Because of this many ancient people had a great reverence for, and even worshipped the sun. The Norsemen of Northern Europe saw the sun as a wheel that changed the seasons. It was from the word for this wheel, houl, that the word yule is thought to have come. At mid-winter the Norsemen lit bonfires, told stories and drank sweet ale.

We haven't got round to the ale yet!

Voices in the Wilderness is celebrating the Solstice and would like to collect Sunset shots from all over the world.

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 :)

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

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
