Golden Grain

The grain in a wooden picnic table is highlighted by the golden glow of the setting sun.

I photographed this table yesterday whilst visiting a RSPB (Royal Society for the Protection of Birds) Nature Reserve. I’d never visited this place before but really liked it.

A lot of thought had gone into designing this reserve, including the positioning of this picnic bench which faced West so one could watch the sun disappear behind a ridge of trees. There we sat, after our walk, enjoying our afternoon tea and cake whilst bathed in the golden yellow light of the sun: wonderful.

  1. Fantastic! The light is extraordinary, and I can let my imagination run riot……it could almost be a landscape viewed from a great height!

    • Thank you Matthew. The bleached wood looked sort of ash-blue colour and the yellow sunset was so strong. I was pleased I was there at the right time to capture it! Many thanks for your visit and kind comments.

    • Yes – the sky turned a very strong yellow (I’ll possibly post one of the images of the sunset) and it really made this weathered table look wonderful! Many thanks for your visit Roberta.

    • Thank you Truels. I was fortunate to have discovered this place for the first time on a day when the light was so lovely. The sky was so golden at sunset.
