December 31 3:50 PM the Capricorn Sun sets on London Fields. 

As the people leave the park there was a beautiful warm glow. The old London plane trees are without leafs and cast long shadows. 

The winter Solstice is just past and the days have started to grow a little longer.

London Fields  are a magical place. 

I witnessed and tried to record the sunset on the last day of the year. As I watched the light changed. In all it was only a few minutes/ seconds. The trees seem to be soaking in the sunlight (MS)

London Fields are  famous. 

They have been there long enough for Martin Amis to so title a book  London fields

 there are local groups too:

The Sun is trine the waning Gibbous Moon   in Virgo. It will not be for some hours before she rises in the east.

When midnight comes the trees will be lit by moon light. But for now the Sun is drama.

The shadows cut through the park giving it a light and dark side.

A few people are still enjoying the setting Sun. Are they seeing this drama of light. 

There is a sort of menace. Perhaps the moon will not rise as predicted. The trees without leaves are dormant.

'This is on the historic "drovers" route, and cuts right across everything in its way. This historic pathway brought live meat and other produce to this, our ancient city of Caer Lludd and is probably over two thousand years old, remaining active until  around 1800 when the first buildings went up. Names such as The Cat & Mutton pub and Sheep Lane are echoes of its earlier existence. 

Today, it is still as straight as the crow flies, and made up of footpaths, cycle-tracks and roads, which run through parkland, over the canal and under the railway line'

Says Stephen Selby of 

www.offbroadway.org.uk/  a local gallery. 

London fields are the last grazing before before London .

The sun cuts across the path. If the sun had lasted till 5 30as it does in later in the year the shadows are parallel with  the path. You can tell the time of day by the shadows.
