Once upon a time I said "One day I'm going to start a blog". Perhaps it was a threat, perhaps it was a promise; I can't remember which or even who I said it to.
But here goes anyway ...
The sunset photo above was taken from my balcony in July 2009 at about 5.25pm. Three minutes earlier, the rays of light in the sky were absolutely spectacular but as usual the camera was on another level at the furthest end of the house. Isn't it ALWAYS when it's needed in a hurry! At least I got several shots before the effect faded completely to an off grey.
It wasn't till I downloaded the photos that I saw the street light had just been turned on in this one - just seemed to put a finishing touch so it's the one I've chosen to show you.
