Plant and Sunset

plant and sunset

The day gets dark so fast now, I set off on a sunny November afternoon, but by the time I get to the edge of the field beside the Tweed it is almost dark.  The sun disappears, then suddenly reappears glistening liquid peach and red on the horizon.  The umbelliferae are well over this year, only the stalks remain, turned spectral, or skeletal, by the camera flash.

    • Hi Seonaid – Yes, the fading light is fascinating, you think it’s all turned to gloom and then suddenly the sun flares out against the horizon. There’s always something to look at, whatever time of year it is….

  2. Don’t know when “it” started. Anyway, every now and then, since, I am dropping by to have a look. Don’t know why, this very photograph, after all, let me think it’s time to leave at least a short com(pli)ment.
    Herewith done.

    • I don’t know what “it” is yet, but thank you kindly – this photograph was a bit of a surprise, as it was almost dark, and the way the flash lit up the stalk I did like, though the true effect didn’t show until I put up the photographs on the computer. Nice of you to comment.

      • Ah, “it” = the moment when I stumbled upon your blog and after looking a bit here and a bit there found that it might be nice to come back now and then.
        May there be a lot more suprises to come.
