Oui, c'est l'hiver aujourd'hui.
Ginnie Hart: I hope we get some snow to make believers out of us, Martine.

Love the shadows across the table, Ginnie.

A very nice shot, Ginnie.

From today the days will be longer again..... what a fabulous picture. Love the light and the shadows.
Ginnie Hart: From today on, indeed! Thank you, Astrid.
This is a really beautiful image, Ginnie! Happy Solstice to you!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you and thank you, dear Elizabeth.
Things get warmer from here. But do they get better?
Ginnie Hart: You must be in the other hemisphere, Michael? Warmer and much brighter for you. But at least we'll start to get brighter, too!
Right back at ya! My favorite time of the year!
Ginnie Hart: Fall is my favorite, Robin, but this always follows suit. If only we could get some snow to show for it!

Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Ayush.

How quickly we seem to have come to the shortest day this year, Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Isn't that the truth, Lisl. This entire year has flown like a whiz!

I always look forward to this day every winter, for obvious reasons
Ginnie Hart: I know you do, Chris. I think all the solstices are special to you. smile
What beautiful light Ginnie. I like this composition and Christmas atmosphere
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Marie. It seemed so warm and cozy, which is what I think of when I think of this time of the year.
Actually, I was speaking metaphorically about the world. But it could be applied to climate change as well.
Ginnie Hart: Ah, yes. Got it, Michael!!!

A nice, cosy scene with all the shadows across the table -I am sure that the sunrise could be well observed today.
Ginnie Hart: I'm sure many were out looking at it today, Philine. Thank you.
That is wonderful Ginnie, you just get better and better. Perhaps you will tell me the secret one day.
Ginnie Hart: Wait. Are you saying the old wine is better than the younger, cheaper stuff, Chad??? grin

Alan might have experienced the winter solstice at Corfe Castle.
Ginnie Hart: That wouldn't surprise me, Philine!
A good friend of mine always goes on about the shortest day. One year I made him a happy shortest day card...
Ginnie Hart: Awww. So it really IS a day to pay attention to, Bill! smile
About a half hour from now. Hurrah!
Ginnie Hart: I guess I need to slow down, then! smile
They've made the most of what area there is for the decorations in that little window.
Ginnie Hart: Yes, they have, Brian. It was a cozy place.

The light and shadows help to focus on the table sculpture. I like it.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir.
He he... Are you sure you didn't mistype the word, "night"?

What's the bestest thing to do when the night is so long, G?

Should I ask A instead? wink
Ginnie Hart: Oh-Oh-Oh...and tsk-tsk-tsk, LC. Leave it to you!
such a beautiful backlight image Ginnie...
we have 8 hours and 9 minutes from sunrise to sunset in Moonbeam today...
things will be brighter from now on....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Peter. Just think what it's been like in Scandinavia these days. How do they ever get used to it, I wonder???
Lovely. Happy Solstice to you! The days will soon be getting longer.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Michael. Every day, yes, we'll see more and more light!
clair obscure et déco extra!! amitiés
Ginnie Hart: More light is coming every single day, JP. YAY!
Better grab the light while you can...
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Larry!
