Day 144 – Cast A Long Shadow…

Walking home along a country lane this evening, the setting sun was behind us and cast the most amazing shadow…

Day 140 – Last Rays…

Rather windy tonight here in Cornwall so didn’t venture out to take photos, but then this awesome sunset appeared… A grab shot with my trusty Sony camera captured it perfectly.

Day 132 – Defying Gravity…

Tonight’s outing was to the Minack Theatre near Land’s End. An amazing venue, carved out of the side of a cliff and hosting everything from music concerts to Shakespeare, it was conceived and largely built by Rowena Cade and her gardener from 1930 onwards. The performance tonight was by ‘Gravity’ – a rock/indie band based locally. Even though the day had been warm, it was far from warm when the sun went down! A magical experience nevertheless…

Day 63 – Threatening Skies…

Today’s plan was to get some jobs done in the garden, but the weather had other ideas… Several times I went outside, got set up with tools etc, only to have to beat a hasty retreat when the heavens opened. The changeable weather did however yield an interesting sky. This was the view from the top of our garden.

Day 46 – Everything Comes…

… to him who waits. So the sunsets every night of our holiday so far have been pretty rubbish – well, that is, with absolutely no cloud in the sky, the sun has just slipped away leaving just a faint glow – no drama at all. With some intermittent cloud today (our last day), it looked more promising so off I set to the lighthouse at Maspalomas to see what was in store… And boy, did it deliver! This is just an iPhone shot – hopefully I’ll have better still when I get to look at my Sony A7iii images on the computer. But for now, I’m happy…

Day 28 – Don’t Be Fooled…

After the really miserable weather yesterday, today has been beautiful and sunny (but cold), culminating in this colourful sunset… However, the forecast is not promising – sleet and snow are expected over the next two days, and with travel disruption expected, my plans for the rest of the week look to be in jeopardy.
