The dance of light

As the amount of daylight visibily increases by the day, this animation of the sunlight that falls on the earth on the 21st of each month shows how it waxes and wanes at our longitude (-1W). It begins on December 21st; midwinter for the northern hemisphere.

Lux et Terra

The changing sunlight drives the seasons at 54.5N, causing the great cycle of nature as we orbit the sun.
