I am still really busy – study is really piling up as the completion date looms, and work, of course. But this? This is a MtLawleyShire sunset – in a month where it has been raining almost non-stop, there have been few sunsets. Mostly just grey skies. So I had to share.
This afternoon (25 Sept), I saw the clouds had lifted and there were actually rays of light:
would it be worthwhile, I wondered, walking down the street? The rays shooting out from behind the cloud were wonderful.
then, as I watched – was that actually the sun?
It was! Slipping down from behind the cloud. Yes, there was cloud in front,because there was no light, just this amazing sight:
and there it was – full and round and yet, not blinding:
It descended so swiftly (& I was interrupted by one of my feline friends, though it was too dull to photograph her, but when I looked back, it was descending towards the horizon and the next band of heavy cloud:
I love the clouds above and around as well:
Then it was all glow – shooting up and painting the clouds:
and it faded so quickly:
Leaving barely more than a memory against the coming night:
