Yesterday evening while walking over to the Co-Op shop on the far side of The Mystery from us, the clouds covering the setting sun drifted away and for a few minutes there was perfect light. The kind of light photographers and film makers treasure, the intense brightness of the sun just before it dips below the horizon.
I had my camera with me, as always, and captured some of the light as it shone on the wildflowers.
You might have seen these flowers a few weeks ago in my post about The Mystery. Well they’re still here, lighting up our late summer.
And so I did. It’s Sheep’s Sorrel.
On my way back from the shop ten minutes later The Mystery was in shadow, the moments had passed and I was glad I’d stopped for a look at the wildflowers on my way out.
Life, a sequence of present moments worth stopping for.
