Winter Sun
3 October 2022

I don’t know what it is about a winter sun – but I love it. It’s not quite winter yet, although the days have cooled. But the air is getting chillier and the winds are picking up – you can tell the water in the Sound is choppy. It could be that the sun just hangs low in the sky… or perhaps it passes through filters of fog and cloud different from when it is summer. But the quality of the light is entirely different. Brighter, surreal, or just some artistic LUT or filter superimposed on the world… not sure. But I like it.

Peter van der Walt is a fiction author, although you may find some non-fiction and the odd essay out there. Fans can find his newsletter, posts, updates and developments at Currently, he is hard at work on his next story. When not writing, he has far too many interests to reasonably keep up with. He lives with his partner in Devon, England.
