Sunbeams with a difference yesterday evening when I left the office. There were clouds to the west, with a thinner layer above which was being lit from below by the sinking sun. Where the sun was blocked by the upper levels of the lower cloud the higher cloud was receiving less light, giving the appearance of there being "negative" sunbeams (or crepuscular rays as the meteorologists call them).
On the three Tuesdays before Christmas every year an Evening Market is held in Totnes. As most of you know I'm not good with crowds so I avoid it, but a photographer I know on facebook visited last night and took a good few pictures before it got TOO crowded.
I have mentioned Graham Walker before: ex-gentleman of the road, cancer survivor and a prime local charity fundraiser. He puts on his best bib and tucker for the occasion, this year selling Christmas cards made from photos of the snow back in March to raise charity funds.
Here is Graham taking a thoughtful sip of a drink last night.
New Years Day was very pleasant and a good deal warmer than usual at this time of year, I took a walk out to the south-west of Totnes on a route I haven't used before. I walked up Harper's Hill, a steep bridle way. I took this photo looking back the way I had come.
