Its that time of year again when thoughts go back and I have a chuckle as the Sun sets and I remember his humour.I took these as I may be clouded out tomorrow.

What serene images Derek, that is what living is truly about, appreciating those magical moments of our beautiful Earth and Sun. It must be 4 years now this summer that we lost our dear Walter :(
