After a summer's day

After sunset, the Cairngorms, August 15

Yesterday we returned from an entertaining time in rainy Edinburgh doing various Festival things to clearing skies. Today the sun was hot, the sky blue. A real summer's day. I walked beside the River Spey, its waters golden brown from recent rain, its banks rich with late summer flowers in yellows, purples, blues and whites. Thin clouds drifted across the sky this evening and as the sun dropped below the horizon its last rays turned the sky peach pink. Will it clear for the Perseid meteor shower later?

The River Spey & the Hills of Cromdale
A tangle of flowers and grasses
