Winter Solstice

Happy Winter Solstice to everyone. This stunning photograph was taken at Newgrange in Ireland on winter solstice as the light illuminates the passageway and chamber. My sister has been several times (not on the winter solstice, though) and eventually I want to see it.

At this time of year, I’m especially fascinated by all the different religious celebrations that occur around the solstice. One of the more interesting specials I’ve seen was on the History Channel dealing with the “history” of the winter festivals. If you’re interested, you can see some of it at

I’m in no way affiliated with the History Channel
