Just before sunset. A mirror-like surface of the river. Still enough light to see the autumn-coloured trees on the left bank. A brief moment and atmosphere, digitally captured. Not quite as intense as it looked in reality.

Striking sunset tonight. The sun like a fireball falling through the blanket of clouds, colouring the sky in warm hues of orange, red and brown.
Somehow the scene looks religious, or a rather stereotypical romantic backdrop to type a twee poem on. Yet, it was what I witnessed with my own eyes, very real, and captivating. A good ending for a good day.
And best of all – this picture was taken at 8.30 pm, and the sun was still quite high – the clouds misleadingly look like the horizon.
We are back to official ‘summer time’ although there is still plenty of snow and ice around. But the longer daylight hours are noticeable in the evenings. This picture was taken around 6.30 in the evening, when the sun still kept creating these golden or coppery patterns on our patio. Hopefully it won’t be too long before we will be making full use of the washing line and pegs outside!
Autumn break allowed me to drive to the countryside, to visit realtives in my childhood village. Always nice to go down memory lane there.
On the way back, the sun set and suddenly the full moon came in sight. The packed bales of hay in the field looked a bit like full moons themselves. By 6.30 pm it was already almost pitch black!
