The September Sun

comments 20

Picture this. It’s Friday evening and you’ve spent the whole day at work, followed by a couple of hours at Ikea. You’re on your way home and the sun is in that blinding position in the middle of the windscreen where neither the sun visor nor sunglasses will give you any refuge from it. Then you come across the most beautiful sunset. And you only wish you had your camera. Or, that evening is repeated when you do.

Sadly, the evening wasn’t quite exactly the same. But on this evening, after spending an entire day working in front of the laptop staring at the sunny day outside, 6pm rolled around and I wanted to make the most out of the rest of the day. So, I went to where I saw the lovely sunset with my camera. Success!

I very nearly got locked into the field I was in. True story. By the time I was done the gate I went in was locked. The gate at the other end was locked. I navigated a series of rather odd paths, dodged some angry cats and eventually got back to my car while there was still some daylight. Worth it! Autumn sunsets are my favourite.


  1. When crossing over beautiful views, I always regretted when I didn’t bring my camera and my phone doesn’t have a good quality photo. Nice photos, Jaina. Some worthy images took risk it deserved ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Glad I’m not the only one with that regret. I’m just glad I didn’t have to spend the night in that field! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. These are gorgeous! I love pictures of sunset, but not the corny cliche ones – I love the ones like these here, where you can really see the light and the way it shines at everything.

  3. Affecting my best farmerโ€™s accentโ€ฆ GET OFF MY LAND!

    Love the last picture, it captures the autumn sunset perfectly.

    • Haha! Really?

      There was some idiot man who seemed intent on destroying each of the bales. Tearing off the stuff that keeps it wrapped. Trying to unroll it. I might have been stupid, but I kept watching him and it seemed to put him off! Well, that and probably the camera I was holding.

  4. Beautiful. I saw a sunset with the hay bale things just like this on my way back from a mates house in Shiplake recently . I was going to take a photo on my phone but drove past too fast and missed it.

    • Always do that myself, too Pete! Occasionally I’ve done the stupid thing of getting my phone out to get a shot while in slow moving traffic. It’s not a good idea! But sometimes it’s worth it ๐Ÿ˜‰
