I grew up in Swinley but over 50 years ago since I left. My guess is that this is where Holme Avenue meets Green Hayes Avenue at a right angle.

Superb picture capturing the different colours in the shorter end of the spectrum mixed with the cloud. Claude Monet would have been enthralled!

Fabulous sunset, I was told about them during the week but I had already drawn the curtains…

There was something "familiar" about this photo and Owd Reekie nailed it for me....my son used to live in Holme Avenue and I too have a feeling that this is where the houses are. It's a lovely time of year when the days are just beginning to draw out and it is still light at teatime. I can remember from childhood the anticipation of being able to "play out" again after the dark nights of Winter. Lovely photo!

and that sunset is not over Swinley, the view of it is from Swinley.

Beautiful photograph, thanks Andy. The downside is that the redness seeps away so quickly.
