Back Into the Light

I had a bright idea as this year dawned.  And that was to record the changing light on my view of Rose Bay from winter to summer and back again.  So I vowed to take a photograph every day of the year at exactly 5pm from exactly the same spot.

I learned that it’s really tricky to remember to do that everyday at the same time, particularly as the days get longer.  It’s impossible when you are away for the better part of one month (as we were in May). And as summer warmed up, the project was forgotten completely.

However, for the record, here is the transition of light from winter to summer here in my corner of this northern county:

January 1 & 25

February 13& 28

March 23 & April 18

April 27 & June 18

This little study illustrates that winter may have come late to us in 2015 (no snow until in February), but it sure stayed late……… (Sigh).

WPC – transition

      Thanks so much, Dorothee! Try it yourself. Just find something you like to look at and is accessible – and just take a photo at regular intervals…. And watch the change. 🙂

    A great idea for a post! The winter photos are beautiful, the light is so soft and clear (sometimes!)

      Thanks!! 😊 I omitted the really gloomy photos – the ones taken mid-snowstorm … I couldn’t bare to dwell on them. Not yet.

      Thanks, Judy! It was a fun project, and I’m glad to have recorded the changes. It’s kinda interesting to look back at.

      It was a pretty good idea … But sadly, it lost momentum. I may try again next year😉. I’m so glad you like the photos, tho!
