Distant winter sun

52 rolls

August can bring cold frosty mornings, clear blue skies, a chill in the breeze, and a rapid fall in temperature when the sun starts to set. It is on these days when the winter sun is distant, that it seems perfect to be the only person on a beach, in the surf, or walking the headlands of the South Coast.

In the nearby wildernesses of the Great Dividing Range, the cool weather provides an opportunity for burning off to reduce the fuel load in the forests before the long dry summer months begin. The smoke haze sunsets intensify red and orange hues of sandstone cliffs facing the west on the escarpment.
