Winter Solstice

Officially the shortest day of sunlight of the year! Finally I got out after the storm and delivered some more Christmas gifts. Put the little tree up inside and headed out just before sundown to see if I could make any images today. I headed to Loch Raven along the drive where the setting sun lights up the trunks of the tall pines. Feeling a little lazy I decided to try some swipes while the sun was on the trunks. After doing some swipes I turned my eye toward the sun as it was coloring the snow between the trunks of the pines orange against the blue snowy shadows. I made a few more abstract images there. When the sun went down I headed toward the dam area to see if I could make any more images before heading home. There were some nice reflections of the bare trees on the snowy hillside. I got my tripod out and made some images along the waters edge. These are my tributes the the Winter Solstice!


  1. I love all your snowy images, but the patterns in "Rivers Edge' are especially nice. So many of your winter images could be Christmas cards!! Merry Christmas!
