October 26th – It had been a frustrating day. I needed to get some stuff from a store on the Orbital Centre in Cannock to get started on a job, but the rain was preventing me venturing onto the A5. Finally, as twilight fell around 5pm, the rain ceased.
On the new road that runs to the back of the orbital past Kingswood, the cloud cleared for the most majestic sunset I’ve seen in a very, very long time.
In 15 minutes, it had built from nothing, peaked, and ebbed into darkness.
Proof that even the worst days can contain real, unexpected and worthwhile beauty.
