The last sunlight of the day filtering through a row of trees at the edge of our village.

@hugo poon: Thanks Hugo....I found this comment in the Aminus3 spam filter. It's super efficient which is great but sometimes it also catches comments like yours which have a link attached.

Thanks for the photo....I guess the difference between our two homes is very great - I certainly don't have a view as spectacular as yours or live in a city nearly as vibrant as HK but on the other hand where I live is very peaceful and quiet. It's a friday evening as I type this and the patio doors are wide open to the back garden so I can hear all the birds singing and the local village church is ringing it's peal of bells as it's nearly 9pm. It's very relaxing after a week at work.

wow. the skies in the UK must always be so dramatic! i always see these amazing cloud formations in your pictures! dang... wish we had skies that here... all we have is fog. :(

@dj.tigersprout: Thanks for your kind comments...it's a real shame that you have so much fog but you know that can look fantasticaly dramatic in photos too. We have been lucky with the clouds so far this year in the UK and I've been making the most of this weather while it lasts. last summer it seemed to rain non-stop!

As you know by now I like most of your pictures. Still, this one is something special for me. Maybe because I like alleys so much... GREAT!
