Winter Solstice 2008

Sunset silhouette, 21 June 2008, Sydney

Hump Day 2008, was last Saturday. If this were the northern hemisphere, 21 June would be the official beginning of winter, rather than 1 June, which is the “Antipodean” start to the season.

Whenever the beginning of winter may or may not be though, at least the days will now gradually become longer.

Summer is on the way :)

And on the flip side of the coin, so to speak, here’s a great photo of the Moon rising in Athens, Greece, on the event of the summer solstice in the northern hemisphere.

I found this sunset “gone wrong” photo while scanning through my photo folder earlier on.

I took it last year sometime but didn’t post it then as the camera’s light metre was set a little too high, and I didn’t like it.

However I find the “flare effect” simultaneously intriguing and (just a little) unsettling…

Sunset over UNSW, late 2005

Sunset behind UNSW. Sometime late, very late, in 2005.

Those Hendrix lyrics once more…

But you and I, we’ve been through that and this is not our fate. So let us not talk falsely now, the hour is getting late

See you all in the New Year. Have a great one :)
