An evening walk around Rockford Common is accompanied by heavy weather, but clearing skies give a beautiful sunset.

Cloud or smoke?

Looking out over Blashford Lakes, I’m not sure whether this is smoke rising up or cloud falling down!

Wet paths of Rockford Common

Walking through the old gravel pit on Rockford Common, the paths are wet from recent rain.

Clearing weather

The heavy clouds begin to clear especially for the sunset.

There it is – the beginning of the sunset.

Pretty skies

Sunset over Linbrook lake

On the drive home, I can’t resist stopping for a view of the sunset over Linbrook Lake, a sunset is never better than when you can see it twice – upside down and right side up 🙂
