The New Zealand Winter Solstice was on Wednesday 21st June at 4.24pm.
This was captured 20 minutes later at 4.44pm with Panasonic TZ60, from my garden, and is the view I see from my front door every day in all its different moods and hues. I had driven home from work with the car lights on - mid winter indeed!
Now that our shortest day is past we can look forward to gradually decreasing hours of darkness.

"There is a grandeur in winter, stern and wild it may be, but a grandeur which speaks to the soul." ~C.J. Peterson

Nicely done Lyn, I like the mtn, and how they barely show themselves and the layered look. tigs=^..^=

If you've ever wanted to make a difference but found it hard to believe that one person could... check out the Kiva Team Caedes discussion thread and discover that anything is possible.

Beautiful sky and I like the way how the mountains are lit up by the glow.

The people on the southern hemisphere are back again to the 'good side' of the calender, Lyn.
Implicates that we, on the northern hemisphere, were switched now to its 'wrong side'. That's life: inevitable!

Wonderful and moody image!

I wish I was a Glow Worm, a Glow Worm's never glum, 'cause how can you be grumpy, when the sun shines out your bum?
