Another evening walk

Now the days are becoming shorter there is a smaller window of time for a daylight evening walk. The evening I took these photos the weather forecast gave 7:45 as the time for the sun to set locally. The photos in this post were taken between 7:34 and 7:40. The first was taken from a low vantage point, the others as we climbed and walked away from the sunset. (I kept turning round to check the view!)

In low light the colours are less true to life.

Evening views near the Irish Sea

On very hot days and days when it has rained in the afternoon, but cleared up in the evening, we have sometimes ventured out in the evening. The light is different for photography.

Here are a few views taken on three walks. The last one being after Storm Francis, when some adventurous folk were out on surfboards or paddle-boards.

On the Hunt for Joy challenge: Remember to hydrate

Cee’s On the Hunt for Joy Challenge this week is Remember to hydrate

Water-bottle, stopper, glass and a drink
Water-bottle, stopper, glass and a drink

Had I found this challenge sooner, my glass would have contained apple and raspberry and I’d have used an empty bottle. The glass is not quite large enough to hold all the contents of the glass bottle.

By contrast the water bottle I take out with water in holds a lot of water. If I am only going for a local walk, I measure a glassful of water and pour it into the flask. Water is heavy to carry. A pint of water weighs a pound and a quarter if I remember correctly.
