Rainy Days

Name, png

There is nothing better that cycling home through the woods and smelling the wet earth & foliage.
I wish I could bottle the intoxicating aroma of Bluebells, Wild Garlic, Cow Parsley and wet leaves.

Petrichor.

The wonderful smell in the air after it’s been raining.

June Sunset

Sunsets, sunsets and more sunsets! Hope you like these montages of sunsets over the past few weeks, They have been stunning, too early for me to be up at sunrise at the moment so sunsets will have to do for now!

As the Sun is low on the horizon at sunrise & sunset, sunlight has had to travel through more of the atmosphere to reach us.

When light hits the atmosphere it is scattered, particularly when dust, smoke & other particles are in the air.

This scattering affects the blue part of the light spectrum the most. So by the time the sunlight reaches our eyes there is generally more of the red & yellow parts of the spectrum remaining.

Dust and smoke particles commonly build up in the atmosphere beneath high-pressure systems, which are generally associated with dry & settled weather.

What a hot and sunny week this has been; of course now it is the weekend it’s gone cooler again! But, that didn’t stop me from visiting some lovely gardens today. My focus this time was on the beautiful peonies that have sprung up this week. My own have already been and gone so it was nice to see these still flowering and looking stunning.

Sweet July

Usually by now I’ve entered lots of photographic competitions and been in the local paper with my picture but this year I’ve entered nothing. I seem to be lacking motivation but I’m sure it will return again soon when also I have more time.

I also much prefer the Autumn months will the ever changing colours of the trees and the beautiful sunrises and sunsets. Although I do not like the dark nights and the endless cold, damp weather.

The other day I was on my way home when came I across a field full of beautiful red poppies. I love poppies (I say this with most of the flowers though!) I must of took over 50 images so I haven’t really had time to sort them out but here are a few.
