Happy Winter Solstice-Fall Photo Essay 2015

By Jelane A. Kennedy

When really is the Winter Solstice? After a bit of an Internet search I decided to look for information in the United Kingdom where Stonehenge is to get the best answer. The Solstice is actually considered to occur today Tuesday December 22nd at 4:49 GMT when the sun rises over Stonehenge. So as the longest night and shortest day begins the following is a reflection since the Autumn Equinox.

This year the season has been up and down with unseasonably warm weather. Which has meant no snow as of yet. For this set of photo’s in my Photo Essay I tried to select photographs that represented fall to me. Some are photos Eileen or I took this fall and others are photos from past years that represent some of the things we have typically done or seen during season.
