A dusky beauty

The sun descends- is this dusk?

The sun descends- is this dusk?

I wait!

I wait!

That's the one!

Perhaps this is the one?

I’m usually homeward bound by dusk, but Paula’s theme for this week requires that I loiter.  This once, I didn’t mind.  Have a look at Thursday’ Special.  I think you’ll find that it is!

  1. It’s nice to loiter sometimes to get such lovely photos such as these. Love dusk, one of my favourite times of the year. I’ll be away this weekend with my boys Jo, so I will catch up with as normal on Monday. Have a lovely weekend…hugs and smiles… 🙂

    1. It looks so tranquil, Ann! The wind was just starting to get up and it was wild overnight so I expect the sea was lashing in yesterday evening. Thank you for your kind words 🙂

  2. Sunset is my favorite time of day. I like the word “dusk” and don’t use it very often. Your photos are wonderfully enticing. Aren’t you glad you lingered just a little bit longer? 🙂

    1. I was actually, Debbie, because I’d walked miles and was tired. I hopped into Mary Rowntree’s to wait a little longer and met some lovely friends, who gave me a lift home. All’s well that ends well 🙂 Hope things are ok with you?

    1. Thanks, Sue 🙂 Did it display properly in the Reader? I don’t normally post twice in a day but after what you said, I thought it might be a good idea.

      Instagram? Oh, dear! I haven’t really got started… I think I posted one pic of a rosebud and that’s it! I’ve taken quite a few photos with the camera and rather like them but I don’t like publishing stuff ‘on the hoof’. It’s just not me! I like to think about what I’m doing and not make a clutz of myself. I’ve uploaded a couple to the laptop and used them but I can’t get the hang of processing and just ‘putting them out there’. I will have a go when I’m travelling next but I need to check photo sizes because my first shots were tall and thin, and the later ones are tiny! I think I’m a hopeless case 😦 But thanks for asking 🙂 🙂

      1. Jo what is your user name in Instagram? I have lost you in my followers. The editing tools in Instagram are really quite good so that’s where I do any processing. Once you get using it it’s actually fun. If i can be helpful let me know. Wouldn’t it be great if we could meet for tea and I could just show you? 🙂

        Yes this post showed up fine in Reader.

      2. I’ll just dust off my magic carpet, Sue, and I’ll be right there! 🙂 Yes- it would be so much simpler! I don’t even remember my user name but it will be either Johanna Bradley or Restlessjo… I think 😦
