Of Sunset Skies and Toadstools

I wasn’t expecting anything spectacular when I headed out for a walk on the evening of day 135 of 365 Days Wild. It had been dull and overcast all day and the most I really hoped for was a few toadstools or other such autumnal sights. The clouds breaking up just in time for sunset was a wonderfully unexpected treat. While the sun itself didn’t make much of an appearance beyond a golden glow, the colours of the clouds were quite beautiful.

I took rather a lot of pictures. Many of them were just of the sky.

Others were of the lanes.

I also took lots of pictures of trees silhouetted against the gorgeous sky.

I didn’t spend all of my time out photographing the sky (just most of it!) I also spotted a few toadstools. There was a clump of Common Inkcap (Coprinopsis atramentaria) toadstools growing on a grass verge beside the lane.

There was also of clump of orange toadstools that I think may be Glistening Inkcaps (Coprinellus micaceus) growing just inside the entrance to the village graveyard.

And a few dandelions were growing by their side.

That’s all for today. Have you watched the sunset recently, or had an unexpectedly beautiful outing? I’d love to know.Just leave a comment below.

    1. I’ve always loved the sight of trees silhouetted against a sunset sky. One of the first ever canvases I ever painted (which still hangs on my parent’s wall) was of one. I never can resist. 😊
