Can you feel it?
The need for crisp air and eyelifting skies? Totti enjoying a frosty morning some years ago – so fresh in the air…so easy to walk.
Today was announced on the news, that November and December were the darkest ever in Sweden since they started measuring hundreds of years ago. So little sun and so little light. Stockholm didn’t have a single sunny hour in these last 7 weeks.
Grey can be beautiful – but not every day for two months – and there are three more to go before early Spring.
But in less than two weeks The Winter Solstice will be here. I can’t tell you how much we need it!

I so enjoy your photos. Thank you for sharing them.
Glad you like them, Ali! Just give me a hint if you want to use some of them!
I definitely will. They are inspiring.
Beautiful images … sorry to hear of the grey days, wish I could share our summer with you
Thank you, Julie – hopefully there will be light soon!
I love the water droplets, AC, and Emma in the woods. Just beautiful. Wishing that some sunshine comes your way! Take care and have a wonderful week.
Hi Patti, and thank you! In fact I saw the sun behind the clouds today – for about 30 seconds. But it was lovely.
Like me you have been making the most of what the weather and nature hands to us each day this December……. but I think I am not getting rather fed up of pulling back the curtains of a morning and being greeted by wet, damp, misty days. We need a change 🙂
We do. Need. A Change.
Well, you have certainly shown us the beautiful side of fog, Ann Christine. The images are simply beautiful. That said, roll on some sunlight.
Thanks, Debbie – YES roll on some sunlight, pleeease. I always follow the forecasts, and all the way to Christmas it is…fog, drizzle and clouds. Hoping for the winter solstice now!
Lovely, mystical images, Ann Christine. I especially love the way you’ve captured the raindrops. Yes, I can imagine how much you are looking forward to some sunny weather.
Thank you, Sylvia – the winter solstice is not far away now!
It really looks like foggy days forever. We don’t have such days here, even during the monsoon season. Lovely photos
Thank you kindly – glad you like them!
A nice set of photos, you made the weather work for you. It’s not been much better in this part of Ontario with rain or snow most of December. I haven’t been down to the bay for a sunrise since some time in November.
Oh, well then we are in the same boat…
We were put under a rainfall warning and a snowfall warning yesterday afternoon. We’d had 12 hours of rain before they ended the snowfall warning this afternoon.
You captured the beauty of fog and gray – yet I’m with you, there is a need for sunshine … and cold and sunshine are fine! Loved the closeups of the waterdrops.
Thank you, Frank. today we had all lights on in the house the whole day. And the car lights when driving. But in just some days…it will all turn around towards light again.
Yes, fog is a downer but you have made the most of this atmospheric weather. And this week, I too was attempting some water drop shots, so I know how difficult they are. Yours is just beautiful, as are your other shots. But the shortest day is soon upon us – then onwards and upwards!
Yes, then onwards and upwards!
Some atmospheric images, A C. I feel for you with the grey weather, but can’t say we’re doing a whole lot better here. Love those water drops!
Thank you, Sue, for your kind sympathy. We are all longing for that winter solstice now, aren’t we?
You may be feeling it, Ann Christine, and it was a big motivator in my moving here, but you have produced the most hauntingly beautiful photos. That second is just wonderful! 🙂 🙂
Thank you, Jo – we have to do what we can to enjoy what we have to have…
Those are beautiful photos. And I do love the bottom photo very much! I feel bad for all of you. I know the sun really does bring up the spirits. We have such heat in the summer here in the desert, but the sun just makes me happy. However, we are in desperate need of rain, so we are all hoping that the predicted rain for tomorrow actually shows up.
I could send you some rain…if it were possible I would. It is terrible for plants, people and animals not to have water. Did the predicted rain come?
You have my sympathy. Grey makes for atmospheric photos but it is so dreary it is hard to feel uplifted. I hope for some sun for you soon!
Wonderful photos the water drops is a wow 🙂 No sunny hour in seven weeks would drive me crazy
Makes for wonderful photos, though, and oh, my those drops!! We could spare some sunshine for you. We’re actually praying for rain tomorrow as it’s been over 100 days without rain, not even normal for the desert. 😦
It may be grey (and I truly sympathise with you as I too loathe the grey, dull days) but you have taken some exceptionally atmospheric photos and those raindrops are very beautiful.
Lovely images. I especially like the water drops.
