Winter Time

First day of winter dawns

It’s the first morning of winter time, and we all need a bit of cheering up. Happily, the sun rose to the challenge.

IF YOUR IPHONE was responsible for you oversleeping this morning, then you missed out. The first day of winter time dawned to spectacular crimson skies in the East and South.

But since we aim to ensure you never miss out, here’s a chance to catch up with our pick of the best of this morning’s dawn shots, taken by TheJournal.ie readers and Twitter users.

All images reproduced with permission. With thanks to Mark Little, Aoife McLysaght, Cristin Leach, Roisin Markham, Marc Quinlivan, Colm Ryan, Jude Leavy, Roland Gröpmair, Elana Kehoe – and all those who sent pictures that weren’t included this time.
