There’s a saying in Cumbria; you don’t get the real spring till it’s fooled you, twice…
But you do get the sun; and its increased energy brings real life to the natural colours in the landscape and the sky.

The final shot, below, was taken just before the sun dropped past the western horizon. The change from sunset to twilight is rapid – the final moments before providing rich, saturated colours and contrasts.
