AFTER DARK



Carmi's Challenge this week is AFTER DARK

Well, I don't go out after dark much nowadays (poor night vision, so afraid of falling, etc. etc.) but I do love looking out of windows. This photograph is of sunrise over Morecombe Bay, taken from our holiday cottage at Grange-over-sands. We had fantastic view across the Bay, and watching the sunrise, whilst the town was all dark, and mostly asleep, was an enormous pleasure.




The second photo is at the other end of the day. We don't get much of a view from the front of our house, but the sky one evening at sunset was so good I had to have a go!

Oh both views are stunning in their own way...there is something magical about both times of day, and you captured it here.....

I don’t blame you for not going out after dark! However, these are both lovely pictures and you’ve got the atmosphere perfectly in each.

We have been getting stunning sunrises in recent weeks, but you have to be quick to catch them now that they are happening earlier and earlier.
Two lovely pictures, Gilly.

Really lovely shots, at the two best times of the day! I love the silhouettes of the branches and the chimney.

Nice tree and chimney. I sort of feel like Bert the chimney sweep is lurking somewhere.

Maybe I just spend too much time writing about vampires, but I can easily imagine one hiding just off-screen in both of your pictures.
