Where is the sun?

I really need some sun to lift my spirits - I feel much more creative when it's sunny and warm, instead of this dull, grey weather.

The last time we really had glorious sunshine was the end of July - mind you, the timing was perfect, as we spent the weekend camping at WOMAD world music festival in Wiltshire .

As well as the music, which is varied and eclectic, and the food, which is varied and delicious, I am always fascinated by the flags around the site - they are stunning, and different each year it seems. The following pics taken with phone camera, but you get the idea.

Don't seem to have got the hang of aligning images yet, but running out of time, so here are some more . . .

Wonderful at night - especially if the photographer can hold the camera still!
And here's a pic of WOMAD last year when it rained a bit (!)
Now you see why I like the sun - and was very pleased with the timing of one its rare appearances this summer!

We learn by doing . . .

Just learning how to do this.

BTW the picture was taken on Christmas Day 2007 on the Isle of Wight, by my favourite man. It hasn't been photoshopped - it really was like that.
