It has become a tradition for my dear husband and myself to rise early on the morning of the winter Solstice and to go to find a high quiet vantage point from where we can watch and greet the Solstice sunrise.
So on this beautiful morning we head across the moorlands of the north Pennines.
Found our vantage point ... and waited.
You might have to enlarge to see the change!
Solstice greetings and bright blessings to you all.
