I’ve followed this project almost from it’s beginnings and every week I mean to join in. We’ve had a couple of lovely sunsets this week but I was bored with my usual ‘back bedroom window’ scenario. Trouble is, most of my days are pretty busy and I can rarely summon the energy for an evening stroll.
It seems such a waste when those Summer nights will be shortening soon. So, I grabbed my jacket and off I went, up the hill in search of a sunset.
I scurried up the hill, which is quite steep (another reason I don’t do evening strolls), desperate to reach the top before the light faded. Cars swept past me, racing for home, or the pub.
But still I couldn’t find the vantage point I really wanted, and those sweeping views I had in mind. I raced up through the village, nodding to the occasional dog walker. Past St. Mary Magdalene’s lovely church and into Butts Lane, I started to look at my watch. Time in the allotted slot was ticking away. I’ve never been very good with deadlines!
But then I thought to myself, ‘does it really matter?’ Here I am, out in the world with my camera, doing what I love best. Lucky to be alive.
You’ve seen these sheep already today, on Paula’s Thursday’s Special. They were very interested in what I was up to, lurking on the outskirts of Hart Village.
And then it was time to head for home, tired but happy. I had already walked to Hart earlier in the day for a t’ai chi class, and retraced my walk for Christine on the return journey. Thankfully, my days are not always so hectic.
But I didn’t fancy the walk back to town in the dark. A quiet glass of wine at home would be my reward, and it was all downhill on the return journey.
I cannot claim that this was a typical evening, but I enjoyed it very much. I hope that you did too. The photos were all taken between 9.00 and 10.00pm.
