A Robbo Solstice

The Winter Solstice came to Robertson with a heavy frost in the morning, the result of a thick night fog combined with low temperatures and lack of a breeze.

Ambient temperature just before sunrise was -1 C, though climbed to a balmy 5 degrees quickly with the sunrise.

These photos, with exceptional crystalline growth on a frond of a tree fern, give an idea of the amount of moisture that was present in the air.

The day turned out fine and clear, with the frost only lasting to the suns first rays.

This night shot illustrates low level mists moving in from the SW.
The camera settings were 15sec/ISO 50/ f2.2.
The streaking caused by the length of the exposure in relation to the velocity of the cloud layer.
