Winter Light

The light in the Winter always seems special to me. I love the slant of it and the long shadows that occur. I especially like Winter light on the streets of Paris.


A quiet street illuminated by the winter sun.


The last of some leaves on a tree with the sun highlighting their color.


I probably wouldn’t have noticed these trees if the light hadn’t caught my eye as I trudged up a street looking for a Christmas present for Maurice.


I turned a corner in the Marais area and was greeted by this fabulous sky.

  1. The sun in winter is like an old friend, isn’t it? Lucky you that it came out to greet you while you were “trudging” along a street. Did you find something great for Maurice?

  2. I love the narrow streets. It says it’s a city built for and around people — not a city built around cars like most North American cities.

  3. I like the first pictures, mostly also because I rarely see empty streets in Paris!

    You are right, winter light is quite special.

  4. Here the wind is howling and it is 14F out. About a foot of snow on the ground. But our winter light can be extraordinary, we get the bluest skies you’ve ever seen in the winter.
