The Shortest Day

For us in the Northern Hemisphere, the winter solstice marks the longest night and shortest day of the year. Christmas and New Year is just around the corner and in today's busy world, we rarely notice the subtle shifts in our seasons, the gradual changing of days and nights, or the arc of the sun across the sky. A solstice is a signal to celebrate, the seasonal significance is in the gradual lengthening of the day. I photographed this misty scene a few days ago, we haven't seen much snow yet, but we have had many magical days with frost and mist like this.
