Morning and Evening... The Longest Day

My last night on Hillbilly Farm had come. I had enjoyed my unexpected week, especially the wide open spaces and the relative isolation. It's not often I'm parked alone in a safe place.
It's the longest day in New Zealand. It's a time of the year I love. Sunrise here is at 5.45am and sunset at 9.15pm... Makes for very long days. I love being outside in the late and early light in the silence just listening to the sounds of nature and the birds around me... Bliss.

9.30 in the evening... All is quiet and still...

7am this morning... The sun's been up for over an hour. It's an overcast, totally still morning and still very warm after an exceptionally hot day yesterday. The earth is still baking, waiting for the rain that is forecast to come soon.

The heavy clouds are making a strange half light.
Am I the only person that loves these still times of each day?
Today I'm packing up and moving back to Christchurch, to traffic,  to people,  to the Xmas 
rush and bustle, to spend this Xmas week with my father...
