Winter Solstice

The winter solstice is one of my favorite days of the year. Especially when I am here in Scandinavia. According to Wikipedia, the winter solstice in the northern hemisphere happens on the 21 of December and is the day with the shortest period of daylight and longest night of the year when the Sun is at its lowest daily maximum elevation in the sky.

Essentially, the winter solstice means that as of tomorrow, we’re once again heading out of the darkness and into the light.

I would argue that the light won’t fully return until January 20 when Donald Trump and his entourage of nitwits, halfwits, and knuckleheads finally leave the White House.

I shot the above in Palisades Park on December 21, 2013, while we were living in Santa Monica, California. The sculpture was made by Bailey Oakes and called Gestation III.
