Sometimes at the end of the day that first swig of a G&T is just the ticket for letting the day wash away. The chores, the cleaning, the feeding, the everything is done. It’s almost bed time for the kids, it’s almost some time just for me.
Other times you just have to go outside and take a deep breath and drink in the sky. The cold air blasts your face. You wrap your cardi that little bit tighter around your body. You can smell the smoke from the fire in the cool evening air. The smells, the sounds, the colours, the day is done.
And now I can actually capture it. The auto on the DSLR used to blow out any colour in a sunset and now I know how to steal it away into my computer. I haven’t quite figured out how to process it and edit it, but it’s a start and this pleases me no end.
