“Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.”
― Rabindranath Tagore

The weekend has seen a combination of rain, thunder, lightning, hail, sleet and then finally snow before it cleared up just in time for those beautiful sunsets that I thought would never be seen again! It’s true that the perfect sunset is the combination of the reflection of a day of rain (or in our case, three days!), a sprinkling of clouds and a handful of rays.


Stir it up with a camera and add a little hanging out of an upstairs window et voila – you have the most fantastic ending to a Sunday! The colours captured remind me of Summer, I can’t wait until the weather improves and I properly venture out with the camera once more.


I also grabbed a few minutes to photograph the biggest and most beautiful roses I’ve ever seen. It was tricky, the light was poor and the roses weren’t co-operating, but the results are passable at least!

The shots for today came to me whilst doing the washing, of all things, at about 7:00am! I hadn’t noticed the roses outside before, so I think they blossomed in the past few days. Against the orange leaves of another plant they looked beautiful and it cast just the right hue.

So camera was grabbed and shooting began! I really like it when my daily shots take only a few minutes to capture and put together in a blog. It’s rewarding for the days when it takes so much more work to get anything worth sharing!

One of my courses for my degree opened this morning and so after work, I was keen to get stuck in and start reading/making notes e.t.c so I may well have to start searching the garden more often for quick photographic inspiration as essay writing, reading and note taking will consume me!
