I have been trying to get these daily posts out at 8am, but this one is slightly late.
I’m pretty sure that no-one will notice – is there really anyone frantically hitting refresh at 7:59, like they’re hoping to be the first in line for concert tickets on some underprepared concert ticket website that will then crash 10 seconds later?
Remember going to concerts?
That was fun, wasn’t it?
Anyway. I digress. Often.
Yesterday was a flat, dull, calm, grey day. Horrible for photography, but great for taking the drone up for the first time in ages and having a quick spin out of the back garden. It needs some work on the camera (the drone, not the back garden): the lens plate is slightly damaged, but apparently fixing that is not an essential service, so it’s not going to happen for a while yet. So I was left having to do a little bit of fiddling in Lightroom, which did at least give me a different image for my photo-a-day Lockdown album on Flickr.
And then, after a quick rain shower, and just as it seemed that all hope of any colour was lost, a watery peach sunset, which I togged from the top of the braai chimney while the braai was in use.
I would not advise this approach.
This photo really is nothing special, but as a symbol of hope and optimism after a miserable grey day, it’s still nothing special.
Today is also grey. Hold tight for the sunset.
