All three photos were taken on November 5 (UK Bonfire night) in the two fields  either side of my house. Here is a  sequence taken casually during the course of  about an hour in the changing light that night.( times approximate).

One – at the fireworks party at 6.00 pm in the rabbit’s allotment field to one side.

Then- the sunset (detail) at 5.00 pm from my turret in the middle.

And then the  moon hanging in the huge space, the farmers rabbit field with the wide horizon. I simply abandoned  the fabulous comfortable sunset  seat and dashed over to the moon to grab it  before the clouds could as soon as I noticed it in the light pink sky.

I  am not sure which piece of the the sky took more of my breath that evening. At first it was the silent and dramatic spangled sky from the house; then back to a silent gentle night just before lights out as it rushed silently over the field,  then forward , back again to a dark and a rather noisy light driven shining on indigo crackling, in the cosiest field!  I could only hope in the end that the rabbits had made a run for it  through and out of the middle of it,  to the quieter place on the other side,  run,running towards the moon, but I didn’t see them.

    1. They must have grown wings that night ( or do all the fields round here connect with secret ancient bunny running tunnels?) ….. I saw flicks from bunny tails, joined to dancing brown shadows, in yet another field this morning, two fields away from the rather dangerous Farmer’s field and 3 fields away from the ashes…. and just a little nearer to the moon. So all is well! ❤ (Honestly!)


    1. It was pretty awesome round the bonfire. I hadn’t wanted to go. It had been a bit of a busy day. It was only over the way so it was easy enough pop over. I am glad I went because I got a few good ones.
