Longest day and a whole lot of sheep

Lambs in golden sunlightAs the days have been getting much longer, I’ve been making the most of them by going for ever-more evening walks with Rudi. I headed out for one of these yesterday evening at Swallowfield Park, one of my usual haunts.  The light, of course, is completely different in the evening and so these very familiar views can be utterly transformed, with new photo opportunities presenting themselves in places where you had thought you had exhausted every shot.  This is what happened as I walked along the Blackwater overlooking the large field full of sheep and lambs, as the setting sun caught them at my favourite angle, “igniting” their fleecy coats with golden light and casting long shadows on the ground.  There’s something very special, in any case, about an evening walk in golden sun; something altogether more mellow in the air than at other times of the day and I’m sure its something that Rudi picks up on as he’s always more exuberant than ever on these walks.

So, a stunning evening stroll generated a whole lot of sheep-shots which I’m particularly pleased with, not only as “material” to work from but as a pleasing collection in its own right.

About Helen White

Helen White is a professional artist and published writer with two primary blogs to her name. Her themes pivot around health and wellbeing, expanded consciousness and ways of noticing how life is a constant dance between the deeply subjective and the collective-universal, all of which she explores with a daily hunger to get to know herself better. Her blog Living Whole shines a light on living with high sensitivity, dealing with trauma and healing from chronic health issues. Spinning the Light is an extremely broad-based platform where she elucidates the everyday alchemy of relentless self-exploration. A lifetime of "feeling like an outsider" slowly emerged as neurodivergence (being a Highly Sensitive Person with ADHD, synaesthesia, sensory processing challenges and other defecits overlapping with giftedness). All of these topics are covered in her blogs, written from two distinct vantage points so, if you have enjoyed one of them, you may wish to explore the other for a different, yet entirely complimentary, perspective.
