Longest night of the year

Tonight is the winter solstice, the shortest day and longest night of the year.  The days will get longer after today, but for tonight the darkness seems endless.  Anything can happen in the dark.



Night in the winter

The air is cold as winter approaches.  Everything seems dead as the temperature drops each night.  Sometimes you can get a glimpse of motion or some semblance of life where it seems impossible for it to exist.  Here is an isolated bank of fog or smoke of some kind that came out of nowhere and dissipated just as quickly.
