Today - right now, actually, if my calculations are correct - is the Winter Solstice in the northern hemisphere, the shortest day of the year, technically when winter starts but really it already feels like it's at its deepest. There are still months yet to go before the sun starts setting at a time more reasonable than just after 4 o'clock in the afternoon. It's sort of a hard concept to illustrate with a photo - so here's the sun descending in vague alignment with the Vancouver street grid, as pedestrians cross Howe along Robson.
