For quite a while now i’ve missed anything remotely like a good sunset. A day off work and it looks promising so i head out with the camera and……it clouds over. I’ve seen a few on days at work, though not many, but it’s not possible to really try and get any photos at work. So i’ve used a lot of time and energy to end up with a dull late afternoon in the winter. It really has been a rather overcast and wet winter. Even the snow has pretty much missed us here so not even much chance of pretty snow photos.
The poor weather hasn’t completely stopped the photography, and i have been out and about a bit. Though not really getting the best of photos, there are a few i will get around to posting on here somewhere along the way.
Work also gets in the way of the photography. My job as a support worker means weird shift patterns and at times long hours. It seems to be dark most of the time i could get out. I guess i need to be a bit more imaginative when it comes to nighttime photography in the winter. But saying that, i did get a few good photos, the odd ones are already on here.
To get back to the point, i’ve missed the sunsets!
The thing with a good sunset is that it gives you a lift. There’s something awe inspiring about them. To see the sun go down and wonderful light it offers us is one of the great wonders we can see.
Who can say they’ve never stood and looked in awe at a sunset?
Well last week i managed to be out with the camera and catch a decent sunset, the first for a few months.
Out with my mate, Gary, we’d been to a couple of places out in North Derbyshire, then hit the cafe in Hathersage. Coming out we could see the golden glow up towards Stanage Edge so we popped up there pretty sharpish.
It was a good sunset! Not the most spectacular, but it was good. All sunsets are good!
So here’s a small sample of photos taken from the end of Stanage Edge.
