The story behind this image

With Wales in its third Covid lockdown, opportunities to travel to exotic locations to fulfil my creative photographic desires were strictly limited.

However, with beautiful twilight colours in the sky on a cold December evening I only had to pad out of my front door in my slippers to capture views of the lovely blue to orange gradient in the skies above, using a selection of streetlights and trees in silhouette to provide a bit of much needed foreground shape and contrast.

And a careful bit of positioning and zooming didn't allow the parked cars and houses to intrude, so I could have been anywhere really!
