Last light

Here in the southern hemisphere we are entering the darkest time of the year as the days shorten.

We have been enjoying some wonderful weather that has us confused. It is warm and calm but the sun is a mellower, soft light and it is in the sky for shorter and shorter hours each day.

As the afternoon draws on the sunlight is slanting across the walls and floors at quite different angles. Sunset behind a nearby hill happens quite dramatically.

On Friday I managed to capture the last, reflected, milky sunlight near the phone and computer.

Then the last of the rays falling on a bedroom wall and within seconds it is all gone from the house and the dark begins to creep in.
