It's All in the Clouds

A moody photograph. Caught at a junction waiting for the lights to change - as a passenger, I add hastily. No mobile phones while driving.

A portent perhaps. Taken a month before the referendum on UK's membership of the EU. The United Kingdom and Ireland above the tree line, with the land mass of continental Europe to the east.

The mood is brooding, the sun casting no light. The traffic lights are on red in warning. Animal eyes watching and waiting - there is danger here.

In the aftermath of Brexit emotions and feelings of pain and shame in equal measure. Letting down our neighbours in Europe, turning away from peace and prosperity, inward looking...

Looking for a green light.
