Photo of the Day – 2015-12-22

Redwood1890-20151220-_DS71796-2Not pretty but instructional. This is the best possible image I could capture of the sun setting over the Big Sound at (around) the winter solstice. It was taken Sunday and the sun is largely obscured by clouds. The forecast is ‘overcast’ until Christmas eve. This image provides a sense of the most southerly excursion of the sun as seen from this position. Compare it with the image taken from pretty much the same location on September 22nd, around the autumn equinox (here’s the link). I estimate the difference is about 27 degrees. (December 2015)
