Strange Light

There's always a strange light in the evening here, this time of year. It only happens for a week or so. You get a sort of orange light. It lasts about half an hour, before it starts to grow dark.
I can't capture it with the camera. The last shot is out of focus, I know, but gives a bit of an idea of what it's like. In reality, the gravel, terracotta pots and the red hot pokers were all glowing with a sort of fluorescence that doesn't come out here.
Look at the red hot poke at the top there. Amazing colour. Yes, maybe that top photo is the closest after all.

Lovely shot, Helena,

Isn;t that strange - our climates are diametrically opposite, yet the red-hot pokers are in full bloom here too.

I was going to shoot some today but didn't have the time. However, if you Google a post of mine called (I think) ``Poker Phase'' from last September, you'll see what I mean.

Take care
