The light can be beautiful in the afternoons, the apartment faces East / West so the sun rises on the balcony and in the evening as it is falling it lights up the stonework reflecting the sunlight back on to the balcony. In the evening sun following a storm, when the sky is dark and the lead roofs are shiny grey, the contrast is strongest.
Everything has been washed clean after a quick lunchtime downpour this morning, 3rd May 2015.
Blooming so quickly the ivy has opened at the top of last year’s finishing position. Will my view from the balcony of the green wall-covering get past the beautiful arch to the top of the 5th floor apartments by the end of this year ?
A new beginning. The ivy on the far wall taken with a very long lens.
My view of the rising sun from the balcony on the morning of 6th March 2015.
