Haven't had the camera outside the garden for quite some time, but last Sunday evening was too good an opportunity to miss. Eight photos over a period of 30 minutes that I hope show the transition from golden hour light to almost dark. K1 + DFA 28-105.

The first is a lovely image. It is all about the light.

Love the colours John - particularly in that first image, although the Hammerhead in no.4 is a cracker too

Lovely countryside, well captured. 1 & 7 in particular, but I also like the poles in 3.

Peter, John, Serge, thanks for your comments about the light, which is precisely what I hoped people would see.
Serge, why am I not surprised that you would be attracted to the telegraph poles?! (But I'm glad you were, as I hoped they form a kind of frame for the panorama in the evening sunlight.)

The electricity poles make a good frame in No3 but I think 1 & 4 are my favorites.

Well, to me they are the subject of your image, the storytellers of sorts, with the lines coming in and out at the sides, and diving into the earth in the middle. The cows don't have a clue... Or just don't care...

No 4 for me, it has great compositional balance and completeness. The soft pastel nature of your images comes through as a sort of theme.

That sounds a bit like that comment about someone having a "great personality"....
