Decembers Light

The mid-December sun, traveling low across southern sky casts long shadows on the icey blue face of a small pond and gently lights the landscape beyond. Decembers light is like no other and helps me keep track of the time like no wall calendar or wristwatch can.

    It’s like all of nature is waiting, sleeping and resting from the years flurry of growth and then the small death of winter, ready to come forward with new life in the spring. Great composition, and truly winters light.

    1. Indeed the cold adds much to the light, crisp and clear almost harsh when the sun is bright. Thanks for taking the time to give some thoughtful feedback as we really appreciate it. Have a grew day.

    1. Hi and thanks. Not much snow here either just a dusting the day before the photo was taken and unfortunately not much is forecast to give us a white Christmas. Hope your day is going great.

      1. Thanks Mike life here in southern Western Australia is cranking up for the tourist onslaught for Christmas… Beach weather… And the sun is finally breaking through. Can’t wait to see what you post next 🙂

        1. I am always torn on the beach holiday, sometimes it sounds great sometimes not so great. I do hope you enjoy the warmth and beach and avoid the rush of the tourists. I am doing a little snow dance as we are a little thin on the white stuff right now. Cheers.

    1. Hi and thanks. The color and light we my objective in this photo so I am so glad you enjoyed the color. Thanks for you thoughtful comments on the blog this year we wish you a happy and healthy 2017.

  2. I can almost feel the cold when I look at this amazing shot. Thank you for capturing the unique qualities of winter light to share with us. I hope you got your White Christmas! Here we had to wait until midnight on Christmas Eve for it to finally start snowing. (And then it wouldn’t stop, we ended up with a foot of snow! ) I guess we have to be careful what we wish for 😉 A day on the beach is sounding pretty good about now!

    1. HI, we just got a little dusting and actually would like for a couple of feet just to get snowed in and soled down for a bit…then a day at the beach. Hope your day was fine and your 2017 your finest year yet.

    1. Hi and thanks. I am delighted you like this one as these ordinary landscape are sometimes hard to photograph. Hope your 2017 is off to a wonderful start and thanks for your support and comments in 2016.
