After working in the sunshine for most of this morning, it was a strange feeling to get back this afternoon to the odd half light that storm Ophelia is causing by whipping up Saharan dust into the skies. It’s been cloudy since lunchtime, so sadly I’ve not seen the red sun that has been widely reported, but the whole sky has been a sickly leaden yellow for hours.
The flowers I’ve gathered from the garden turn out to reflect today’s weather effects. Here in the East of England we are luckily missing the worst of the winds etc, but the jug I’ve used nevertheless managed to blow over at least three times during the photo shoot, so some of the pictures are just of a hand-held bunch of flowers. I wanted to take the pictures outside in the odd light though, “roamin’ in the gloamin'” in other words!
