The Solstice

The Solstice was 10 days ago. What it means in terms of my photography, is that the sun is as far north as it will be this season. It doesn't set in the west, but in the northwest. And that means that the sunlight, for a few weeks, shines in through the front door of the house, as it did today, and illuminated this lamp and table and small bowl of artificial flowers. But the subject of this photo, of course, is the sun itself. It's wonderful light at this time of day, isn't it? It seems impossible, but from now on, the days only get shorter and shorter.
