Sunset, Moonset

Sunset-moonset 2022

Looking up in the Breamish Valley never fails to reward: herons, geese, scintillating sunsets. What’s not to enjoy? And this time of the year, with the late autumn crispness, the December ‘cold moon’ is stunning. Have you taken the time to look up?

And if you look carefully, and the conditions are right, you can also see Venus close to the full moon:

And remember those wonderful sunsets in the valley from just about six months ago?

Keep looking up!
