Have you noticed how much happier, upbeat and generally LOVELY everyone is when the sun shines?! It's hard to be in a bad mood when there is a cloudless bright blue sky above your head. The kind that you almost have to squint to even look up. Lately i can't get enough of it.

We have been lucky up in Cumbria, to be spoilt with several days of solid sunshine. It's often hard to believe quite how much of a different this makes to EVERYTHING. Every single thing in the world looks better with sunshine behind it, around it or shining brightly down upon on it. There is no getting away with how much friendlier everyone is, how much friendlier I want to be and how much better you feel inside and out. Sunshine makes you want to eat better, it makes you want to get out and fill your lungs with as much of that bright blue skied air that you can manage. If you are British there is always that feeling of not quite knowing how long such beautiful weather shall last. For that reason i feel as if I live life much more when Mr sunshine is peeping down at me. Each second of it is PRECIOUS and not a moment of it can be wasted.

These images MELT my heart. I love that amber glow, that special golden hour when the very last drops of sunlight start to slide down behind the hills. Sometimes i think i love it more than any other time of day. It is my very favourite time to take photographs too. Everything feels so still, MAGICAL and beautiful and just sitting there watching the sunlight drift away is quite special.
Have you been lucky enough to have some beautiful SUNSHINE too? How does it make you feel?!
