Skies, Handle and Tandem

A bright start to the day.
Did some sorting out of stuff, so out with Bella a bit later to more mixed weather. These beech trees in a neighbour's walled garden looked good against the sky.
Round the corner and Little Solsbury basked in sunshine. 
A handle (overexposed) on a newly painted gate. 
Sun over the next terrace up the hill.
Guess this is alright if you're the small person on the back of this tandem arrangement. 
By the time we got round the block, the drizzle had set in and Little Solsbury was less inviting.
Briefly home before setting off to UWE for some project supervision and to discuss some cover teaching I am doing in February - some on a course I co-wrote in 1998/99, which is in its last year of running (not bad going for Higher Education these days!). This was in Q Block, one of the two buildings that house the Faculty of Environment and Technology - it looked good in the sun.
Escaped before rush hour. Pulled over on the way back to catch the glow of the late afternoon sun on the road. 
Home to dramatic skies as well. 
The last glow before the skies lost their colour. 
This day a year ago, snow still lay round about, cool and crisp and all over Siston Common when I drove to UWE.
