You Can Never Tell
Sunday 13th January 2013
Overcast, very cold day. At the last minute I decide to go out and take a photo. It is 4pm and sunset is 4.50pm. I decide to go to Tregeseal Common. I drive most of the way walking the last 400 yards through deep mud. I take a few photos and decide to come back if we get snow. The common should look good in snow. The rest of the country has snow but not down here in West Penwith. The light is no good and I’m cold so I decide to go home. Driving home just as the sun is setting I see some nice light high in the sky but I can also see a huge bank of cloud resting on the horizon so I carry on home. My wife cannot understand why I have come home. Our sitting room is bathed in a red glow.
This shot was taken from St Just by Becky, the daughter of a friend of mine. You can never tell! Instead of going home I should have driven to the coast; all of a 5 minute drive>
