Afternoon Sun by Ophelia

15_20171015Sun2_6m

Ireland has taken the full force of Storm Ophelia today. Here on the east coast of England, the surprisingly gentle breeze has been pleasantly warm. But smoke from Portuguese wildfires, Saharan sand, and dust from a thousand miles to the south of here has filled Filey skies and given a very strange light.

I was in the churchyard this afternoon photographing a headstone or two and took this picture about 2.30.

As for Today’s Image – I don’t turn my camera on people very often but an opportunity such as this one… The young woman, a jogger, was a total stranger, not seen by me before or since. I told her I had taken the photograph and asked permission to post it online “if it came out”. She looked at it on the LCD screen and kindly gave her blessing.
