Solstice sunset.

The winter solstice's sunrise wasn't much to look at.  And up I was, looking at it, listening to Jethro Tull, brewing coffee and making cinnamon rolls: I wanted to get my money's worth of daylight on this the shortest day of the year. 
However, whilst walking the Vinodogs late this afternoon I got to enjoy a very impressive sunset which highlighted the neighbourhood vineyards with a deep, amber glow.
Happy winter solstice, enjoy, be happy...for tomorrow it starts to stay lighter, later.

Thud: Defo wasn't grey here. We are having the best December, crisp and sunny. No rain forecast for at least the next week :)

Dennis Tsiorbas said...

Thud, Merry Christmas to you and yours, and may the sun shine upon you to!

Vinogirlish, do you plant roses at the edge of your vines?

Dennis Tsiorbas said...

Toooooo!!!!!!

No sun in the western sky for me to look at the extra minute of daylight today.

It's 61 degrees F, but has been raining, snowing or overcast since Thanksgiving. Feels like Portland, Oregon. Good thing I don't live in a high rise with a precipice-like drop outside my window.

Thomas, I remember a time (late sixties) when I didn't see the sun for three weeks; I know just what you mean.
Be well and get a poster :-)

NHW: One row, has one rose bush. But only because there was no where else to put it.

Tomasso: 64 today, blue sky, no clouds, extremely pleasant, I could go on...

Thomas said...

If you continue to go on, VG, I will send a hit man.

Vinogirl said...

Tomasso: Not going to happen. Said hitman would arrive, have a glass of wine, enjoy the sunset - and totally forget why he was in Napa in the first palce!
