Perspective On A Cycle

2015_solstice

This picture was taken at sunrise 7 days before the 2015 winter solstice which occurred on 12/22/15. We are looking southeast towards the Oakland hills from above Eureka Valley in San Francisco. The lone, tall redwood tree marks the approximate location of the terminus of the sun’s journey south on the horizon, after which, the sunrise will move northwards again until it reaches its summer terminus in six months to come. That point will occur quite a bit to the left of the frame of this photo!
