Lucifer Catching the Low Light

    As we approach the Winter Solstice, up in the Interior of BC, the sun never gets very high above the horizon.  We have a woods running beside our property line, and at this time of year, the sun never rises above the trees.  Fortunately, because there are a lot of leafless deciduous trees in the forest, we do get sunlight filtering through the naked branches.
    Yesterday in the living room, I noticed Lucifer cuddled on her blanket beside the wood stove, with her face catching the sunlight as it streamed through the bay window.  The photo was taken an hour before noon, and I think you can see by the long shadows in the photo that the sun is pretty low, even in the middle of the day.
