There are some sunrises that seem to walk right into sleepy eyes and awaken the spirit.
This one, a winter sunrise after endless days of rain in the Dromana Hills, Mornington Peninsula, seemed to manage that very magic!
And the shapely darkness of silhouetted trees and a power pole seemed to etch a beautiful contrast with the vibrant rhythms of colour!

No shampooing, no blow drying, no tinting, no styling and no cutting!
