We had a random ad agency crew turn up today: accompanying our bank manager as they shoot photography for a big new nationwide campaign. I told them it isn't the first time our farm has been used for a shoot: I've used it several times myself for various clients.
The day was sultry hot but a bit dull in terms of light, so it was hard to know what the sky would put forward when it came to their preferred shooting time - sundown. I took them to my favourite spots on the farm and then left them to it, but just as I was putting Conor to bed I couldn't resist heading out to see the light show mother nature had decided to put on.
Somehow, the cloud had all cleared, and we were left with a beautiful golden glow that changes by the second.
When people come here, they are frequently wowed by the beauty. Today I spoke of the foresight my grandfather had in making our home here.
I have a quiet determination to never take this place for granted and to appreciate this magnificent landscape for the incredible place that it is. I don't care if I have captured these sunsets before: every time I take them again, it's another way of giving thanks for the place where I live.
