Golden joy

It’s almost impossible to photograph a summer sunset

As the sun goes down so very late.

Goldenwithbird.jpg

Even at 9.30 or 10 in the evening,

The sun is blazing golden and serene.

Joy.jpg

The evening light is liquid honey —

Simmieswim.jpg

And when Simmie shakes after his swim,

He creates golden fireworks of water.

And Skywatch.

    • I think my favourite season has to be autumn from a photography point of view. I like summer, however, as then I don’t need to bundle up so much and I love the long, light evenings.
