Gettin' darker and cooler

Here are more amazing images from Erik Johansson.

Well folks, it's that time of year when we are getting about half light and half dark in each day.*
I've had a couple of fires, but just for the novelty really. Winters are not long here compared to some places. But it's probably time to stop eating ice-cream† and start making soups...
Handing the torch over to you, Northern hemisphere.

*About midnight on March 20, actually.

† Well, might make an exception for you, J.


  1. Thanks for the link.......brilliant works.

  2. Here it's gettin' lighter and warmer. What a funny world. I'm sure there is some sort of scientific explanation for it all.

    Wonderful image in your post!

  3. His work is amazing!
    Every extra minute of daylight is an extra minute of delight. Savour your fire.

  4. Thanks for dropping by, Adrian. They are interesting, aren't they?

    Robert. When my mother experienced anything technically amazing, she used to say "Oh, wonders of the steam age!"

    Violet - Yes, daylight is very useful, but I don't mind the night either. I stay up too late during summer. And so I use the winter to catch up on my sleep! At least, that's the theory! Talking of catching up - I must come and visit you soon.
