The First Day of Winter (2017)

The Seasons

First Days: Yesterday at 11:28 a.m. was the winter solstice in North America, but today is the first full day of winter. It also marks the beginning of longer days, as strange as this thought sounds coming right after the shortest day of the year (8:55:47), that is, in terms of daylight hours. This photo was taken this morning a little after sunrise, which was at 7:48 a.m. You can see some of the snow on the trees, which is especially pretty on the evergreens.
