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.
Well, May was a busy month! I was commissioned to photograph a very beautiful (and green) country garden at the end of the month in a very rural location. I have put a few images up (there are lots more to edit) hope you like them.
