Seeking white in autumn morning light

As you might know the sun is rising later and later in our valley and mountains. The early morning walks tend to start just as the sun is giving first blush off light to the valley and mountains. It struck me that the only blossoms that I could see were white ones - so I decided this week to focus on finding white in the dim light.

So the photos below are part of the exercise of finding white - some are not great shots as the light was pretty low and the iPhone was not really up to the task on occassions.

And a few photos showing the contrast between the first blush of light and a little later as the light bathed the valley in peach colours.

Fiona tells me it is about 5 weeks to the shortest day of the year for us down under so I guess there will be more photos in low light and off soft morning sunrises.
