Twilight time

Yesterday's walk, setting off half an hour before sunset, getting home half an hour after sunset, left impressions of the perfect spring evening, the air full of the scent of May flowers, cleaned by the day's earlier thunderstorms. The road reflects the light of the twilit sky, streetlights come on, the night beckons. Trombity at its very finest.

The sky, after the sun has cleared the horizon, continues to be sufficiently luminescent to make photography still possible. Trombity is at its most charming soon after sunset, from May through to early September.

(Above) Trombity's 'silver birch house'. Ground-level lighting, an immaculate lawn and an impressive stand of birches make this the street's - indeed Jeziorki's - visually most impressive and beautiful front garden.
