Mostly inspired by my late afternoon walks home to Freshwater Bay from Yarmouth along the old railway track that follows the River Yar through the nature reserve to Afton in the winter months, just as the sun is setting and I am striding out to reach the causeway before the light goes. A theme I return to to every autumn/winter.
