DP Weekly Photo Challenge – Half Light

Islands in the Sky


Dawn over Derwent Water, Cumbria

Daily Post suggest Half Light as this Weeks Photo Challenge.  For me Dawn is that period of Half Light that is both magical in its own right but also sets the scene and mood for the remainder of the day.

But perhaps for me it is the Half Light of a Winters morning that is the most evocative.  Early morning mist on a frosty December day with the sun pushing its way determinedly into the day.  It is in Winter that such a morning perhaps is symbol of good times ahead…..not just for the day ahead but that Winter will soon be over and a New Year and the cycle of seasons can begin once more….
