Shady walks are the best and I was struck by the contrast of these two photos taken a few seconds apart a couple of years ago when we were in the beautiful highlands of Kenya. I started up on high ground over looking the tea fields (top photo), and then descended into them. The patch of shade along the walk as I went down the hill was so very lovely and such a contrast to the sunny spots. There's something gentle and peaceful about shade; everything looks prettier, and it's a grace when you come into it from the hot sun!
