Dusk

17 Dec

The shortest day of the year, Winter Solstice is December 22, 2010. On that day, the sun will rise at 9:24 and it will set nearly six hours later at 15:13. After the solstice, the days will start to get longer and slowly, there will be more daylight here.

These photos were taken at dusk, around 3 PM a few days ago.

    The light is so amazing there and it looks especially nice reflected on the Kiasma.

      Kiasma looks like a pink cloud in this picture!

      Me, too! They are my favorite part of the Central Railway Station.

    the stone guys look even more monolithic in their winter whites.

      Monolithic is the perfect word!
