An attempt at an Impressionist sunset

36/52 for the group 2015 Weekly Alphabet Challenge

This week's theme was: I is for Impression

Well, with a busy week getting ready to return to work after the long summer holiday, I nearly forgot to take the photo this week.

Here, therefore, is a quick shot taken out of the window. I've messed about with it quite a bit in PhotoShop in an attempt to make it look like an Impressionist painter's impression of a sunset. I couldn't entirely get it to look as brush-strokey as I would have liked, but it's this or missing a week.

Start of a new term

I am sooo tired now.

It's been the first day back teaching for me today, but the day went well. All the students reappeared after the summer and seemed keen to get started on the new work. Also, the copies of the book G wrote over the summer (and which I spent so much time testing and proofreading) arrived today. It looks really splendid and made all the work seem worthwhile.
