A Sunset Walk

There’s a particular walk I love to do from my house when I want to get a bit of peace, fresh air and exercise.  The other day I went at sunset (which is not difficult as this is at about 3.30pm here at the moment).  And I remembered my camera!    I love the trees…

I love the winter silhouettes against the sky.

And the way the golden colour of the sun is reflected:

It’s funny how this photo seems much lighter just because of the direction in which I took it.

But these are my favourite trees, I think:

Changing the subject entirely, I recently lugged the old Windows 98 computer (which keeps going despite our best efforts to kill it off) up to the boxroom as no one was using it, preferring the newer, faster models.   So its desk was freed up for me to appropriate… so now I have all my things I use for Etsy down here in the same room.  I’ve put most of the smaller things for sale downstairs too, to make it easier to photograph them and list them without trudging upstairs to my studio.  But most of all, I’ve been able to clear my studio of ‘business’ stuff, receipts, packaging and things like that, in the hope that they won’t stifle creativity.  Trouble is, other things are stifling creativity at the moment….  feeling ill, and the run up to Christmas.  I hope it will spring up afresh in the New Year. 

Meanwhile, here is a photo of my ‘Etsy Corner’!

    Hi there
    Spending a few minutes (!) catching up. Love your pix of the trees. I see similar view from my upstairs kitchen. The evening light this year is just gorgeous, but I must admit I haven’t managed to get out to record the scene. It is so cold, even down here in the south – now a confirmed southern softie! Keep warm.
