In my previous blog post about Wicken Fen in rural Cambridge I showed you what was there and some landscape images that I had taken, as well as some of the horses and foal found there. (Yes that was the blog with the horse GIF).
As I took many photos that day I thought they would be too many for one blog post so I decided to write this one and to show what a beautiful sunset we observed there at Wicken Fen.
The light was changing and becoming a richer orange colour so by talking very nicely to the man behind the national trust desk we were let back onto the boardwalk. We knew we didn’t have that much time as the sun was already on its way to setting.
As we had already explored it earlier that day we headed straight for the most photogenic parts. Trying to capture the beautiful colours that the setting sun was producing.
We were not the only ones taking in the sunset however as we spotted a few other photographers and wildlife enthusiasts along the way round. Anyway we could see why we weren’t the only ones there as the setting sun created a spectacular show for us and finished the day off nicely. This amazing place left us with a perfect message on the sign post on the way out “loved for the biggest of skies and smallest of creatures”.
I would recommend a visit to this place and it has the added bonus of being open from dawn till dusk. After this day was up we then stayed overnight in Cambridge ready for a full days exploration the next day, exploring the famous Cambridge Botanical Gardens, where the rest of our course from @ joined us. (Look out for my next blog post which will be out soon revealing many of the flora that you can find there)
