Photographer's Note

The shortest day of the year at 7h 55m 40s in length (also my birthday!) dawned beautifully with a partial cover of Altocumulus cloud, this allowed the sun to catch it perfectly and produce a stunning orange glow, infact befoe i took this shot the cloud was much better colour with the underside catching the light even more! I will post that photo in the coming days.
To capture the shortest day of the year with such colour is quite unique for me because i have only once ever seen a good sunrise on this day.

Whitecliff bay (where this was taken) isn't anything special for photography, its usually a flat beach with a few stones and some sand, this day however had some amazing rock pools and large seaweed covered rocks. I also found these strange posts that protect the cliff from erosion, they have been there since i was a child but this was the first time i have really noticed them.

I used an ND8 Graduated filter
