Shortest day

Today is the winter solstice (which falls on either the 21st or 22nd December). It's the shortest day and the longest night.

From now on the days will start getting longer again... no promises about the weather improving.

I really wanted a nice picture of sunrise at North Greenwich... or failing that a shot of the full eclipse of the moon which apparently was appearing blood red.

Sadly the thin but persistent cloud cover didn't oblige so I settled for the pretty lights by the O2.
