Last And First | Yule 2023

Thank you if you have been following my weekly Castings. So, here we are at the end and the start of another year!

On this page I’ll post the photographs people send of the Last sunset and the First sunrise of the solar year.

I’ll keep this page open and updated as the photographs come in.

Thank you to everyone who took part.
