I know I'm not alone, but I miss the bright sunlight at this time of year.  So whenever, there is a glimpse of sunshine, I try and make sure I notice and enjoy it.  Sort of breath it in, if that makes sense?

On Tuesday, as I was in the office, just doing the last few jobs of the day, I noticed that the sun was setting and creating a beautiful warm glow.  My Miscanthus grass in particular looked spectacular as it was lit behind.  Sort of glowing.  I decided to stop work and grab my camera.

As is the case at this time of the year here, the light changes very quickly, and by the time I'd locked the office door, walked up the drive to my house, grabbed my camera, the light had changed and the grass was no longer catching the light.  You will have to believe me it looked stunning.  :)

I decided to try and capture the sunset as I spent a few minutes outside.

I hope you enjoy the photos as it's yet another grey day here.


Reflected in my kitchen window.  


  1. Stunning pictures Sara, the skies are incredible at this time of year aren't they. I love the afternoons as it starts to get dark, the earlier the better for me, it's like nothing else. Lucky you having a home office, such a thing would make me very happy! Sometimes I look longingly at the garage... But then where would all of the junk go?! Wishing you a good weekend. CJ xx

  2. Stunning!!!! Those pictures of the sunset are amazing Sara. So incredibly beautiful. It is good to look for the light. xx

  4. Absolutely stunning. And yes, I know exactly what you mean, every glimpse of sun must be noticed, enjoyed and savoured at this time of year. That is one spectacular sunset. x

  6. Beautiful photos, Sara. I agree, it's very important to hang onto every bit of brightness at this time of year.

  7. Your view from the kitchen window is stunning!
    We're just experiencing rather windy and wild weather - s'pose it is time the season turned to wintery rather than the lovely extended summer we have celebrated!

  8. Gosh, that really was a vibrant sunset, so nice to see amid all the November gloom.

  9. The light is just gorgeous at the everything has a glow.
