Winter Solstice sunrise at Newgrange - 22nd December 2002
The winter solstice sunrise behind a standing stone, photographed from the
entrance of the passage tomb at Newgrange.
A rainbow appeared just before the sun shone directly on the mound.
The white quartz stone beautifully illuminated by the winter solstice
sunrise with a rainbow to complete a wonderful spectacle.
The clouds gathered at the back of the mound but thankfully the winter
solstice early morning sunshine shone brightly on the front of the mound.
Sunlight in the passage at Newgrange, photographed from the entrance, the
sunbeam high on the orthostats (the stones lining the passage) illuminates
Clearly pleased to be at Newgrange on a mild winter solstice morning.
