The sunlight is more subdued here and more gentle than the bright sunlight you get in Australia and New Zealand. I prefer this gentle lighting.

So I feel very much at home with the dark and gloomy colours.

I took the children to the park late this afternoon between 4:30 and 5pm and the sun was just starting to set so I took some nice photos of the colours in the Western sky.
