Another day of very mixed weather. By lunchtime we’d had rain, snow, sunshine, clear blue skies and hailstones … all four seasons. It’s always a pleasure to walk the beach below the cottage – it seems to have as many changes of mood as there are grains of sand spread along the shore.
As we move closer towards the winter solstice – the shortening days have lower light levels and the few hours of daylight we get at this time of year can often be overcast and grey. Mornings and evening often provide some relief from the gathering greyness by giving a light show of spectacular sunrises and sunsets. This morning the sky was alive with warm, fiery colours which were heightened by the reflection in a calm sea.
