The year´s darkest day

21:st of December 2009
Today it is the darkest day of the year. In swedish it is called midvintersolståndet, meaning the "midwintersunstand". Despite that fact it´s been another brilliant, cold day with frost covering everything, creating beautiful scenery in the landscape. Especially when the sun broke through in the afternoon. We had some more snow yesterday and the Stockholm area even got plenty. Hawfinches, Bullfinch and Chaffinch looked absolutley stunning in the frost at the feeding station this morning. I await some pictures from a visiting bird photographer. Meanwhile just a solitary tree in sunset and –11° C.
