Two sunset rides in three days – you can tell we’ve at last got rid of January. Hateful month.

Sunday’s ride was bathed in the rose hues of a sinking sun – just managed to get home before lighting up time, which was just as well because I had no lights.

This afternoon I got home from work and did a lightning-fast change to get out again for a blat before dark.  Gorgeous light down by the river and my HTC phone did the best it could, although the Canon would have been the business for more decent shots.

Well worth it.  I noticed that have laid down proper track for another section of cycle path.  And for the first time ever, they have erected a helpful warning sign lest unwary cyclists be swept by flood currents into the treacherous River Severn….

Under the bridge – we know a song about that don’t we?

    I love the warmth of the colours of the first picture, like a promise of spring. The other photos grab me less, but I can appreciate it must have been a lovely day.

    Thanks Isobel. I just love the drama of the sinking sun and the colour changes in a very short time. Seems a bit of a treat after so many monochrome days.

    …and all she left us was an Orange vapour trail blatting into the purple of an evening…

    Vapour trail? What *are* you implying? Iss dust. Eat my dust, baby 😉

    But I like to eat fresh, local produce. Surely dust isn’t in season in the UK? Unless it is foreign dust flown in just to make the sunsets spectacular for speedy cyclists. Do you have a recipe for mud pies?
    Or is the sibilance a sign of blooddust, perhaps I should have said wapertrailz?

    I take your point about the dust. Mississippi mud pie, do you?

    However, “Eat my pies, baby” doesn’t have the same je ne sais quoi. 🙂
