First Light Shadows

A few days ago I was woken up at 4am by Minki who "had to go" and as the day broke I saw that it was the most brilliant lighting I had seen in a long time and managed to capture these pictures, the shadows of trees on the terracotta walls of the old farm house.

Every day since has been cloudy and rainy.....


  1. Those are awesome first I thought it was a fire...just beautiful :D

  2. Interesting pics. I'm like Julie...I thought fire when I first saw it.

  3. Wow! Look at that glow!! Minki just wanted to make sure you got to see it with the rain in the forecast and all... :)

    Guess that rainy season there has begun!

  4. Breathtaking. Amazing what the light does in the morning.
    It is my absolute favorite time of the day:)
    Aren't you glad you had to get up;)

  5. Liesl, those are beautiful pictures. I'm so glad that you got up in time to take them. They just radiate warmth.

  6. Liesl, those are spectacular!!
    How fortunate that you were there to capture this. Imagine what is missed.....

  7. It almost looks like fire. Wow!

  8. Very nice. They look really great and unique.
