Winter Sunshine

It seems more than a little strange to see the sun, at its full midday brilliance, struggling to clear the top of a distant tree. Welcome to Northern Hemisphere winter, Mr. Australian!

Sunday lived up to its name, delivering crystal clear skies. I enjoyed a nice sleep in, opened my curtains to the first proper sunshine for about a month, and promptly went for a walk with my camera. I was a little exuberant and only wore a light top, so my hands were frozen by the time I arrived home, but it was worth it!

The theme of this set: sunny silhouettes and shadows! Click any for the large size…
A stark sunburst and winter walkers.
Left or right? It doesn’t matter…
A slightly creepier shot from the depths of shadow.
The remains of autumn colour carpet the ground, while the winter sun casts long shadows.

  1. The light in the early mornings is superb … beautiful pictures!!!

    • Believe it or not, this was after midday! In winter here the sun never really gets above what I would normally call ‘just rising’. Depressingly short days but it does make for great light all day long when the clouds disappear.
