Of Blue Sky Days and Sunset Sheep

On day 180 of 365 Days Wild I headed out mid-morning for a wander around some of the local lanes.

It was a beautiful morning, with clear blue skies and just a hint of mist lingering over the fields. If I’d realised that the fog would disperse quite so quickly I would have headed out earlier – the weather forecast had suggested that it wouldn’t be cleared until midday! I had hoped for a few shots of sunlight through the haze… Ah, well. I’m sure there will be many more opportunities for such pictures.

Instead of misty shots, I was instead captivated by the last of the leaves that continue to cling to the tips of branches in the hedgerow. Caught in the sun and showcased against the beautiful blue sky, they looked almost as if they had been crafted out of gold.

I emerged from indoors again just after the sun had set, but just in time to catch the last of the sunset colour over the field behind our house.

Most of the sheep were too far away for me to snap photos of, but one remained close enough for a few shots. Unfortunately, the light was facing by this point, so the clarity of the pictures is somewhat lacking.

That’s all for today.How have you been connecting with nature recently?Let me know in the comments section below.
