When I awoke this morning at 5.30am it was still dark and I realised how quickly the days were getting shorter. When I have to get up early for work, I don't mind it during the summer, as the warm morning light streams through the crack in the curtains. It just makes you want the start the day with a smile. But in the winter I just want to stay in bed until the sun can be bothered to get up. Thing is though, as the sunrise gets later in the day, it also makes it a little more friendly for the photographer wanting to capture it without the sleep deprivation. Getting up at 7am to travel to the local beach is alot more my scene. So roll on the winter nights!
