Midsummer evening

I love these evenings when at 10pm it's still light enough to go for a walk. 

The sky to the north-west is a palette of pastel colours.

Cream heads of parsley glow amongst the silhouettes of tall, blunt-headed grasses. Light from the sinking sun drapes the cliff edges in diaphanous purple.

To the south the moon has risen in a cold, pure sky.

The sea is milk in a saucer.

  1. Great to meet you, Heather and lovely to meet another writer and one who walks and lives near me! I'm off to do a walk for Cornwall Today magazine this morning so hope the rain keeps off after weeks of sunshine!
