On day 190 of 365 Days Wild I went out for a sunset walk.
Sunset is currently at 3:45pm. One of the good things about this time of year is that it is very easy to watch the sun set, but, on the downside, there aren’t many afternoon hours in which to get out for photography. I did snap a few pictures whilst the light was in its golden hour, however.
The growth along the dyke has been cut back, revealing a tree stump in the far side that is covered in bracket fungi. I squelched through the mud until I managed to get close enough for a few shots, though my position was a little too precarious, and the dyke a little too full of water, for me to try to take any more!
As generally tends to be the case, my walk took me into the meadow where I wandered for a while, snapping photos whenever something caught my eye. I spent a little while with one of the young trees, where droplets were clinging onto the tips of branches that were being colonised by lichen.
The hedgerow at the western edge of the meadow is always a good place for photography at this time of day / year. I particularly like the view over the paddock next door towards the house known as The Retreat.
I left the meadow and returned to the lane just as the sunset colour began to develop in the sky.
Sunset was beautifully golden.
I did hope that there might be some nice post-sunset pinks developing but, other than a staining of the eastern sky as I walked home through the village, these, unfortunately, didn’t manifest.
That’s all for today. Have you been out for a sunset walk recently
