Day 19 – 17th April 2016

The first cloud appeared this morning at 9:30, almost 4 hours after I started out walking from Overbury, and just 15 minutes before I finished. Clear blue sky is not the blessing that many believe, indeed the harsh contrast created by the blazing overhead sun can be very challenging for landscape photography. But when the sun is very low in a clear sky, say during the first and last hours of daylight, the light is often at its best.

Swallows have returned from Africa, I heard a garden warbler singing, watched a sparrowhawk chasing a crow, and enjoyed skylarks in display flight and song. And the bluebells are now fully open – over a month since the first ones bloomed – see Day 13.
