Photo of the day - Lisbon's winter light

lisbon's winter light

Is Lisbon's winter light a cure for the blues of the dark season?

It's right about this time in the Northern Hemisphere that winter starts to feel like an imposition. It's not getting measurably warmer, and even though it's been getting lighter for almost two months, it's not light enough, darn it. Not at all.

This is the time of year when it's easy to forget that winter's thin light can also very beautiful. Flickr user t3mujin reminds of this fact with the above Lisbon street scene, snapped in December just before the winter solstice. He nails the beauty of Lisbon's winter light wonderfully, anchoring the image in the gaze of the lovers casting shadows on the street.

Upload your images of winter light to Flickr's Gadling Group Pool. We choose our favorites from the pool to be Photos of the Day.
