I just want to share this photo with you...
Some of you may have seen it in my Sidebar under the heading "Current favourite Photo". It is just that. I took it late on Sunday afternoon, just before 5 p.m.
I went out to the garage to get something and just happened to notice how beautiful the evening sky looked - bright and clear and deep ultramarine blue, with the Moon in a prominent postion, and Venus just off to its left. You can also see a thin line of vapour from an aircraft condensation trail, which makes it looks as if the Moon is smoking. Then there is the faint pink flush of sunset just above the horizon.
I rushed back indoors, grabbed the camera and snapped off four quick photos, of which this is the best. The other ones have light from the streetlamps in them, which spoils the natural effect. I also love the complex patterns created by the different types of tree seen in silhouette.
This is a photo I am proud of. It makes me happy!
