First Sun of The New Year - 7th January

The sun is very low in the sky for me around the winter solstice, and for a couple of months hides between the trees and rooftops of the urban skyline.  Clear blue skies on this sunday morning tempted me out in the frost to catch a 20 minute window as the sun glides between the rooftops of neighbouring houses.  The wind was from the east so I knew seeing was going to be poor, and coupled with said rooftops steaming as the heavy frost sublimated in the winter sunshine.  I didn't have long to set up for the shot, so this really is very rough and ready, but is always nice to get a view of our star after such a long break.  Taken with the Lunt DS50 and PGR Chameleon 3 camera.
