On Monday I had to go to London for a meeting. I took the train from home and arrived back in Salisbury at around 4:45. While on the train I had become aware of the beautiful light and wondered if there would be a stunning sunset to see on the walk home from the station?
The Walk home takes me past Elizabeth Gardens, which run down to the water meadows, and as soon as I got there I realised the sunset was shaping up to be something quite special.
I was completely taken by the fact that I was still in the middle of the city, on a routine walk home, and all this beauty was unfolding around me as if I were in the middle of the countryside.
In the distance the trees were highlighted the ridge of the hill displaying their pink tips like ladies fans,
but what really caught my eye was the way in which the reeds were lit up by the setting sun
This effect intensified as the sun sank lower until everything was aglow
As I resumed my walk home after this short detour I really felt that I had captured one of life's 'sparking moments' Hope you found some this week too!
