A brief sunset in MtLawleyShire

Only a brief walk this afternoon – rain & going out, but there was enough time to catch momentary lowering sunlight on the almond blossom:

This photo works better in black & white – it suffered from low light:

I love teh way sunlight catches the flowers – especially against the grey sky:

Early evening moon, in clouds & then momentarily in the clear:

Sunset – it started watery gold

before fading to barely a glow:

Then I went to dinner with some friends & played with the light: picture of a water feature in their back garden and a close-up of the water.  Not something my little camera does awfully well, but it came up OK-ish 🙂

& here, the moon in her proper dark:

Finally – sleeping earlier in the afternoon, my lovely Fattee Cattee 🙂
