After the rain · 30 Days Wild 2
It was a damp start to day two here in Cornwall, which meant it was a perfect excuse to catch up on some posts in the 30 Days Wild Facebook group and read some blog posts about other people’s adventures. It’s so inspiring to see so many people getting excited about nature!
Admittedly it wasn’t constant rain, but a monotone grey sky is never the most inspiring (at least for me). By lunchtime the clouds looked like the were starting to break up, temporarily adding some dimension to my view from the window, but it wasn’t long before we were back to all over grey.
After a few hours spent working on some commissions and Oddity Closet orders, I decided to venture into the garden and seize the opportunity to grab some photographs of the scattering of droplets left by the morning rain.
On the greyest of days, there’s still plenty of beauty to be found… if only we remember to look!
Whilst overcast skies might not be anyone’s favourite weather, it does often make for ideal photography conditions providing it’s not too gloomy. The clouds diffuse the light, leaving you with a chance to observe tiny details without the harsh shadows cast by the sun.
By 3pm the sun was trying it’s hardest to make an appearance, occasionally managing breaks in the clouds and come 4pm there were even patches of blue sky, but it didn’t manage to completely brighten up until gone 7pm. Rather than venture too far I decided I’d continue my research on environmental policies ahead of the UK’s upcoming election. If you’re eligible to vote, please consider taking a look at the post I’ve written on what your vote means for the environment where I go into detail.
Now that the sky has turned to blue I’m going to unplug from technology and finish off the day with some good food and some cloud watching… Possibly my favourite way to unwind!
