To make a comparison I suppose I should stand in the same place. At least my two photos are of the same place, ones just a bit closer than the other. Both photos are taken late afternoon, the first just after it had stopped raining and the clouds were still lifting from the mountain.
In the other, after a hot, sunny day, the last of the sun is just catching the tops of the poplars.
At the moment I prefer the rainy day shot. We need more rain.
