SkyWatch Friday and a Happy New Year!

The sky over Pickering Ontario on the Winter Solstice of 2009.

I was at my daughter's house. Her house is on a hill and faces east. The sun was just beginning to set on this, the shortest set of daylight hours of the year. Unfortunately there are tall trees on the west side of her house and the setting sun could not be seen. But I did get a nice photo of the eastern sky from the patio deck off her kitchen.

For other SkyWatch photos please go here.

Happy New Year Everyone!

It is a lovely delicate sky, Hetty! Sometimes the best sunrise/sunset photos are actually the ones where your back is to the main event!
As for snow on the Countess, I will likely not be back to see it. That is at my hometown, Woodstock, Ontario, 100 miles west of Toronto. I live in Ottawa, so we have LOTS of snow here!!
