Winter Solstice

A foggy morning for this, last [for this decade] Winter Solstice.
Here is my fuzzy view, moments before sunrise
Athens, mt. Penteli and the Observatory
the clouds…
mt.Penteli, antennas and a cloud…
…and the top of a tree
and…

Pink Floyd

Set The Controls For The Heart Of The Sun

Jethro Tull

Ring Out Solstice Bells

Enjoy this longest night of the year

[or day, depending on which hemisphere this finds you]

Happy Yule!

  1. I haven’t listened to the songs yet because I’m on a remote with no sound—also time is of the essence as we head into the Xmas stretch! But I will say that I saw your spread yesterday while in the countryside. (I partic. like the tree pointing-reaching to the antennae.) It was YOU who reminded me it was the solstice! 🙂 Merry, Merry Christmas to you and yours!!! 🙂

  2. Once again you capture the sky, clouds at a golden moment! So glad I didn’t miss this beautiful series of shots. Perfect music selection too! If we don’t communicate before, Merry Christmas Marina ~

    I love your positive take IE: The longest night. Why dwell on the shortest day.
    I’ll listen to your music in a bit, while I’m wrapping presents.
    Right now, I’m listening to the Coffee Break song on Oannes blog. It a great background piece.
    Sorry it took me so long to answer your comment on Velvet Tango. I’m back over there, and found it.
    Sending love and wonderful holiday wishes!
