shorter days do have a silver lining

I’m not a fan of short days.  One of the things I love about living in Scotland are the long evenings with plenty of daylight.

But, I have to admit that this week the shorter days have delivered some fabulous light on my daily walks.

At 4.30pm along the river


and coming back in the other direction


and then in the morning by the sea


and when the sun came from behind the clouds


I’m loving how my familiar views are taking on new looks with the amazing light of the golden hour that I’m actually seeing due to the shorter days.  Have you been noting the change in light at the moment?

I love that second photo especially ... Yes, we've had some lovely golden light too, but there's a hint of the winter grey beginning to creep in.

Gorgeous! Yes, it's just perfect here this morning. Let's hope it lasts for a few more days yet.

Oh, that's beautiful! Unfortunately the only change I've noticed in our light is that there isn't enough of it....
