Light

Two posts in one day? Cor blimey, anyone would think I was starting to become prolific. But late this afternoon the light had a really unearthly quality to it. I don't think the photos I took do it full justice but here are some of them all the same.

Impressive photography - you have captured the moon too.

Thanks qv - but it's difficult to take any credit for the photography, since it was merely a case of recording things as they were (as far as a camera can).

Fabulous pics.

What purple sky ?
Why haven't I got that colour on my screen?
Damn !
Lovely pics,purple or not....

But Why? said...

Love the pics!

I'm not getting any purple, either. (Come to think of it, I haven't had any purple in ages - it's seriously under-represented in my life. I should do something about that. I know - I'll wear purple to work. The problem of "what do I wear today" has now been solved. Thanks, Bindi.)

Thanks j.j.

I presume bindi is referring to the second picture which does have some purple amidst the, er, haze? Anyway thank you too bindi, lav and but why? - and in terms of the latter, I'm glad this site has been able to act as a catalyst for the solving of such problems: public service blogging :)

the second pic on my macbook screen is a deep deep purple colour fading towards the horizon into pale gold and white! its all a bit eerie and gothic.

but why, I'm pleased to have had a part in inspiring your clothing choice on that particular morning. I hope the purple looked smashing. I'm sure people would have been dying to reach out and touch you that day.

Reading the Signs said...

Strange and unearthly, Trousers.

Certainly was, signs, I can remember walking out of the house just to go to the shop or something: I immediately walked back into the house to get my camera, so struck by the strangeness was I.
