12.07.12 - The End of a beautiful Day
Our first really nice sunset in quite a while came at the end of a beautiful warm Summer's day, and they've been rare this year too :)
I planned my guided photo walk to end by the lake at sunset, and the forecast was promising, but when we set off two hours earlier the skies looked thick and grey in the West. Right on cue the clouds parted and we got a wonderful display of colour. Then the colours started to fade and I headed for home, only to see the colours come back with a vengeance 10 minutes later when I was surrounded by houses and couldn't get a clear shot! Usually I'm very patient with sunsets, but the mosquitoes were biting hard by the water, so I'm blaming them for it :)
I got lots of nice pics on the walk, wildflowers, wild fungi, wildfowl and plenty of bees collecting pollen from thistles, In fact I could have posted an identical pic to yesterday, but with a white thistle instead of the usual purple ones.
Thanks for the comments on my bee yesterday, I didn't manage a single comment in return, today might be similar, but I hope to get back to check the dailies later.
