Night lights

Just a few late afternoon photos finishing off the walk for the Season Challenge the other day. It is surprising how quickly it gets dark now.

And did anyone spot the pelican and puffin?

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

  1. I had to search through each photo 3 times before I found the pelican and the puffin! The Angel sign kept drawing my eye away from the little figures over the windows.

    It’s 5 pm here and now dark outside. The short daylight makes for very long evenings hibernating! Nice job of the photos with the golden windows. At this time of year when everything seems to be gray, the golden windows look so inviting.

      1. I think the animals get it right. Even Theo my cat is sleeping a LOT more than usual. Why are humans so dumb about the natural cycle of nature and insist on fighting it?!

      1. Warm and inviting. I think you have different lighting colours in the UK – ours is very white light and yours, even on the streetlights is less jarring.

        1. The lighting seems very much duller these days, I struggle to see inside at times! Some of it is due to the low energy lights, but I am also convinced the power is reduced. Or maybe it is a sign of old age 😉
          The yellow street lights are not great for seeing with either, but it keeps light pollution down I guess.

      1. Ahh…got it, straight away! And I looked there too…I always say I would make a useless witness because of my lack of observation skills! Thanks Jude 🙂
