I wasn’t planning on a sunset photo today, and indeed it’s been mostly cloudy all day anyway. But then, just as our Christmas visitors were leaving, the setting sun lit up the underside of the broken clouds in spectacular fashion. Rather than walk to my usual spot up the road and risk missing the best of the light, I just took this photo of the cow silhouette through the garden fence. Moments later the colour had gone from the sky…
We had ‘a lot of weather’ here today – a fine start, then rain, cloud, and very late in the afternoon a couple of minutes where the sun shone through from under the clouds. This is just up the hill from our house.
It’s late August, so coming to the end of the lavender season in England. We have a lavender ‘farm’ near us, and not only is it their last day of the season tomorrow, but the business is closing because the owners are retiring. The lavender fields may not match Provence, but there was still a decent photo to be had.
I was awake even earlier than usual this morning and around 6am saw that the light was promising. Grabbed shoes and my camera and walked the few yards to the farm gate nearby. Just time to snatch a few shots before the sun came up fully and the beautiful colours disappeared.
The rather unsettled weather just lately has seen storms, heavy rain, strong winds and sunshine all in the same day, and today has been no exception. Late this afternoon a sharp shower followed by bright sunshine created this beautiful rainbow over the fields around us.
Unusual to see this many sheep all in one field, especially as it was adjacent to a housing development in a fairly suburban location. I wonder what they make of that?
