This past few days has brought with it glorious sunshine. In England when the sun comes out, people go a little crazy, off come half the clothes, and everyone crowds onto the nearest patch of grass.

To celebrate another beautiful summer morning, I thought I’d share a little tip to help you play with flare yourself.

I went back to the field today.
It was cloudy, cloudy, rainy, cloudy, aaall day long. However, as soon as I left work there was a brief burst of sunshine. I ran to the field, and took a few more photos before the sun went away for the night.

Every couple of years the field near my house turns a wonderful, shining yellow. It’s currently at the height of its glory, so I took a 5 minute walk after work today.
