Winter solstice is upon those of us in the Northern Hemisphere—and today’s simple post features a bright and cheery photograph on this day with the least amount of daylight for the year.

  1. That was a fun day. It was very cold but there was no wind and we had the Mountain all to ourselves. Catherine and I took turns sledding down the Mountain and Hugh patiently drove us back up to start over. You probably remember the shot he took at the parking lot on top late the same afternoon. It is still one of my favorites among all the hundred of thousands of pictures he made.
    Merry Christmas to you and to all of my Tarheel friends.

  2. This is such a gorgeous shot with great contrast between the snowy white background and the color of the girls’ clothing, their sled, and their dog.
