    • Thanks very much for your comment, Renard. It was good to be able to share such a spectacular sky – usually I miss these sunsets because I don’t have my camera, or I’m in the wrong place, but last evening I was on the banks of the Tweed at the right time. It all changes so quickly, too. Sometimes I wish I had a wide angle lens to more of the whole sunset. I know taking pictures of sunsets is quite a normal thing to do, but it’s kind of an acknowledgement of how astonishing and changeable the sky can be.

    • Hi, Seonaid. Thanks for your comment. It’s that low sun, and the amazing cloud formations – I was quite excited by the sky last night, I saw the clouds during the day and thought that if there was sun in the late afternoon then the light might be interesting, so I tried to time my walk accordingly.

      • Yes, glad I was out there right underneath one of the amazing sunsets one gets in the Borders – today it is very grey, so I will go for a constitutional for my health but not with any hope of getting any pictures. Tried it once, looking for light in the late afternoon in November, but the results were not good. If I knew more about photography maybe I could do something more interesting with the camera on days like this.

      • Sometimes I find overcast days, with their soft diffused light, good for close up textural shots 🙂
        However I didn’t bother taking my camera out on my dog walk today, as it was very cloudy and damp….?.and guess what….. we had the perfect up close encounter with a very patient elegant grey heron!
