Winter sunset at Síd in Broga


The solstice approaches ... sunset at Síd in Broga (Newgrange). The days are at their shortest now. We're in midwinter. The sun's rising and setting positions are slowing down for the big stop, which in 2019 year occurs centered on Sunday 22nd December.

We think of winter as a cold and dead time, but the truth is that winter has many gifts to offer. For photographers, there is something remarkably rich about the dawn and dusk skies in the Boyne Valley, above the monuments.

Let's hope there will be many beautiful sunrises as people gather at the great monument on the shortest day of the year.
