Sun Pillar

One of the things I really don’t like about winter is the dark. Its dark when I get up in the morning, and its dark, or getting there, at 4pm in the afternoon. I really look forward to December 21st. Because that’s the day with the least light, and from there on, it gets brighter. Slowly, but it gets brighter, roughly two minutes more a day. Its really nice when its cloudy for a number of days, and then its sunny and the sunset is that little bit later in the evening.

Today on the way home, the sunset was brilliant and orange. As I got off the bus to head to the train, I saw a sun pillar and had to grab a picture. Its one of those times I’m glad I tote a camera around with me. The reds and oranges were spectacular. I couldn’t quite position myself such that the pillar was right behind the building (looking like a beam coming out of the middle of it).
