Dark morning sights and fragments of colour

According to the inter-web winter solstice occurred today at 1.54pm in the southern hemisphere - so the days are going to get longer right?

This morning's walk started in near dark - grey light on the horizon as I set off.

And darkness in the valley with the mountains silhouetted against the glow of the lights of Brisbane and the Port of Brisbane.

Gradually the grey gave way to orange on the horizon.

On my way home I noticed the first of the wattle blossom was out - delicate balls of pile yellow.

The morning sun filtered through the kitchen widow and highlighted the micro blossoms of the orchid on the side of the kitchen sink.

Dark beauty and colour abounds.
