Winter Solstice sunrise at Newgrange - 20th December 2005
Newgrange Winter Solstice sunrise.
I was at Newgrange
on three mornings around the winter solstice
but cloudy skies meant that there was no sunlight to illuminate the passage and chamber
of the great mound. I am very grateful to Anne-Maria Moroney who was at
Newgrange on the 20th of December and has made these images available.
Anne-Maria was studying the shadows from the standing stones around the
Newgrange Winter Solstice sunrise - Shadow GC 1 to K2.
