The winter solstice arrived in the northern hemisphere as the Sun reached it's southernmost setting point on the horizon on December 21st, The least amount of daylight and the arrival of the Sun above the Tropic of Capricorn 23.5 degrees south of the equator marked it's most southern declination from the equator. From this day on, until the summer solstice in June, days will slowly get longer and the Sun will be seen above the horizon further and further north as the days warm.
This HDR image was made just south of Loveland, Colorado as the Sun was about to go below the horizon on the first day of northern hemisphere winter.
The original photograph was made on a Canon t3i camera.
