Wordless Wednesday 46-22

This was the only moment when we enjoyed sunshine in week’s time. Moreover the only image we took during our 90 min. walk. I do not see sunrise and sunset from my home. The sun is always behind those mountains.

What Causes the Sun to Not Rise In the Winter?

Both the occurrence of the Midnight Sun and the Polar Night are a direct result of the position of the Earth and its relationship with the Sun. As most people already know, the Earth is not positioned perfectly perpendicular. If it was, then every location on the entire planet would receive exactly 12 hours of sunlight and 12 hours of darkness every single day. However, as we already know, this is not the case.  

The reason for this is that the Earth has a slight tilt to it. In fact, it is estimated that the Earth’s tilt is approximately 23.5 degrees on its axis. This fairly significant tilt of the earth means that one end of it is always pointing towards the sun while the opposite end is pointing away from it.

However, since the Earth is also constantly rotating on its axis and making a complete revolution every 24 hours, it means that the majority of the planet is still receiving a fairly equal amount of sunlight for the majority of the year. But as you get further away from the equator, this ratio of sunlight to darkness begins to become more and more unequal.

Jos Monday Walk – Hope you don’t mind one image post, Jo.

Flight of fancy: Observing autumn sun

I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, It’s a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, And that enables you to laugh at life’s realities.~ Dr. Seuss

Whatever you want, at any moment, someone else is getting it. Whatever you have, someone else is longing for.~ Laura Lippman

In current circumstances I am longing for sunny days. The declining day length and falling temperatures causing “raining leaves”. I wished to capture remains of the autumn but could hardly manage. Anyways, I was happy to be in nature for almost two hours.

Hope you are enjoying Sunday!

The apple never falls far from the tree

हाँ मैंने देखी, 

कुदरत की ना-इंसाफ़ी देखी। 

रोटी के टुकड़े को तरसते लोगे देखे। 

और कहीं मनों के हिसाब से बिखरे सेब देखे। 

कहीं कूड़े पे पड़ा खाना भी है हलाल, 

और कहीं  चिड़िया भी चोंच न लगाए ये है हाल।

Better to be Crazy and Happy

Six word Saturday

*****

Note: I spent most of my time during Diwali in office. October is mostly like November. The days are grey, wet and rainy but I am still hoping for some beautiful moments to capture autumn essence.
