I love the winter light of Australia, especially just before sunset.
It is utterly magical, golden and brilliant, suffusing every leaf and stalk with ethereal light.
It is my favorite time to take Luna for a walk.
We amble slowly, taking time to notice how even plain Jane thistles are rendered glorious by the winter sun.
We always startle kangaroos and wallabies who bound off through the glowing grasses, darting under fences or around trees, leaving only faint trails and tufts of fur to remind us they were there.
I love how the bush looks like it’s lit from within.
How even homely weeds become silvered filigree, works of art emerging from the forest floor.
What is your favorite light?
