I noted a couple of weeks ago on my #365daysofbiking Tumblr journal that this was the time of year to expect great sunsets. There have been some wonderful ones of late, but yesterday’s was spectacular, and by a twist of good fortune I happened to be cycling back through Wall – possibly the best place to be locally for a good sunset – when it occurred. It was certainly one of the best sunsets I’ve seen for a year or so.
From the north end of Claypit Lane, looking toward Pipe Hill. 5:43pm, Saturday, 25th February 2012.
This house in Market Lane took on a wonderful silhouette. 5:57pm, Saturday, 25th February 2012.
The copse pool at the top of Aldershawe Hill. 5:48pm, Saturday, 25th February 2012.
The driveway to Aldershaw Livery Stables, looking towards Wall Village. 5:51pm, Saturday, 25th February 2012.
Looking east toward Know;e Hill and Deans Slade. 5:42pm, Saturday, 25th February 2012.
Stunning, too, from Wall cricket pitch. 5:56pm, Saturday, 25th February 2012.
Thanks Bob, I now how some superb new desktops (saved to my disk with a filename that will always credit you, I hasten to add). I’ve said it before, but I love the Google Earth GPS facility on your pics. And a bit of an early Hawkwind fan, are you?
Glad you like them. That’s such a special bit of Staffordshire – it has such a lot of sky, and wonderful, rolling horizons. And yes, Panoramio is great. It’s where BrownhillsBob started, really.
Hawkwind? Only the first album. But guilty as charged: I’m a prog-loving old hippy.
Anyone is free to use my images for non-commercial use, and a credit is always appreciated.
It’s so infuriating how you can read things before posting them and only once they’re up and uneditable you spot the gaffe. Anyroad up, I’m sure you knew that I meant “I now HAVE some superb new desktops…” And disk with a K? Oh Lordy. Anyway, thanks again Bob. Sundown is long gone here so it’s off to bed.
super photos..much appreciated.Many thanks for sharing them
