Longing for some solstice sun

December 21st, 2014

In Madison, we’ve had close to three weeks of sunless sky. Add in the long hours of darkness, and my psyche is really hungry for some sunshine. As a remedy, I decided to post evidence of the star our planet circles, from an earlier and brighter day.

Thankfully, at least the amount of daylight starts to increase tomorrow. Happy solstice everyone.

Lit Christmas tree in front of a foggy Capitol

I had planned on trying to shoot the Geminid meteor shower last night. The view of the Capitol in the fog wasn’t a bad alternative.

snow on red leaves

The morning after Madison’s first inch or so of significant snow, a few colorful leaves can still be found.
