It's the shortest day of the year, the winter solstice, the true new year. It has been my tradition to post a photo of a sunrise or sunset at each solstice, but if you're here in SoCal, you know why that's not going to happen.
So from the archives, a few sunset pix from Broad Beach. It's the winter solstice, with the actual sol. (Shot when Broad Beach was actually broad, and still had a beach.)
