Sunrise over Courtown

It is the shortest day of the year – winter solstice (here in the Northern Hemisphere) so I popped down to the beach to catch the sunrise. Tomorrow the days will start to get longer and we will be heading for spring: Yippee!

      Thank you. Yes I do like taking photos but I rarely get the time to go out and specifically take nice shots. But one day – when i get more time 🙂
