The magic of an inconvenient moment


Sometimes we're so busy rushing around that we fail to notice what is going on around us.

On Tuesday night as I was driving home from work, I was stopped at a set of temporary traffic lights. My initial reaction was one of mild irritation - I wanted to get home not sit here in the middle of nowhere. Then I looked around me and saw the sun setting behind some trees. For once I had my camera handy, so took a couple of snaps. They weren't great, but they give a flavour of what was happening. I'm not sure what the other drivers were thinking as I poked the lens out of the window!

The rest of my journey was calmer, as I considered how lucky I was to have been stopped at that set of temporary traffic lights.
