THERE has certainly been more rain than is strictly necessary during the past few months. Day after day of muddy walks with Tilly the terrier, a mud-covered car, muddy boots, and too much time spent in waterproof clothing.
The odd day when there are clear skies has been really welcome, especially as it usually heralds a spectacular sunset.
Like all good moonrakers, Tilly and I have places where we like to go to witness those wonderful shades of gold, barley sugar and red as they spread across the sky. The dramatic colours disappear so fast that you have to be quick with the camera.
