Does It Really Matter That the Sky Is Grey?

Julie McFadzean


This photograph was taken at sunset as the storm clouds were gathering. Some of my best photographs have been taken when the sun has failed to break through the clouds. We all love a hot, sunny day, but I enjoy being outside and enjoying nature in all weathers. It’s easy to put on waterproofs when it’s raining, dress up warm when it’s cold, everyone should have the opportunity to experience raindrops on their face and the wind in their hair, sliding on ice as well as the warmth of the sun. Why do we keep our old people, disabled people and so many children wrapped up inside when they could be enjoying the wonders of nature?
