Winter light as the solstice approaches

Just a few days ago, cold winter light made shadows sharp and crisp on this city neighbourhood of venerable trees.

Now a light dusting of snow has softened earth and sky, and the sharp cold has given way to milder temperatures.

The kids who were playing hockey on the Serpentine Fen yesterday will have to find an indoor rink for their game.

It's winter in Vancouver, and that means thaws and mild weather as well as occasional frost and snow.

The skaters below are near Ely, in Cambridgeshire, but the view is much the same. Photo from The Daily Mail.
