Those balmy days of diamond sun
That warmed the skin with baked in heat.
I wish we could return to that,
From these windswept winter shores
Where we find our boats are moored.
The clocks are going back this weekend and for most of us that means that the summer is well and truly over. There will be no more sitting in the garden at ten at night, and there will be no more going for walks in T-shirt and shorts.
But there are some of us who love this time of year more. I do like all those things that summer brings, but who can hate the rain beating against the window as you sit curled up with a good book? And who can hate the spiced pumpkin lattes? Or the new winter coats? Or Christmas being just around the corner?
There have been so many bad things that have happened this year, and so I think that we owe it to ourselves to embrace everything that comes our way. There is a little bit of positive in everything, so lets not just trounce on something just because it’s cold and dark.
I know that the clocks going back is normally such a negative thing in our lives, but try to think of it positively for this one. Even if it’s just because you’ll get an extra hour in bed tomorrow!

I can hate the rain banging against the window, because I’ve had a lot of problems with my roof the last few years. And I don’t like being cold.
I hate being cold too but I like to imagine that I have a real fireplace roaring in the corner and hot chocolate with cream and marshmallows. This is not the reality but I like to keep it in my mind as the weather gets miserable!
I was also going to say something about Cher, but you already posted it 😛
Haha, I always see it in posts on Facebook so I had to put it on the blog at some point 🙂
For me, it is one of the somewhat more tolerable Cher songs. And it was written by Diane Warren, I believe.
For me, the turning back of the clock brings sunset closer… which means more sunsets to blaze into my camera!
Your Twitter sunsets are my favourite!
My interest in in photographing sunsets and sunrises has beenencouraged and supported by several of the Twitter weather photographers. As with the writers, it’s a wonderful and open community… although somewhat more competitive
