Pretty Sea Sunrises

Today I’m sharing one of my favourite time of the day: Sunrise! Way too often than I care to admit being still in the land of zzzz I miss them. When I do catch one I feel like it’s going to be a good day!

Watching the day’s first light rise over the sea lightening up the sky and sometimes the sea peaches, lilacs, purples, blues and pinks, followed by a glowing ball of pink makes me feel alive and full energy. I alway say hi and never forget how lucky I am to watch the sun rise over the sea before turning into its daylight yellow. Sunsets with all their vivid colours don’t compare to that ball of pink say hello Earth. Or is it one half the of Earth saying hi to the sun if you’re really going to get into technicalities?

As usual way too many photos to share and while it’s my favourite time of the day, I’m not the best at capturing them. Anyways, sunrises from this summer and past couple of months.

Photos That Never Made….

While I haven’t been blogging as much as I’ve wanted the past few weeks, I’m still taking just as many photos! Some were for posts that never happened, others just because, others I forgot to share, some day to day seemed boring to talk about at the time and others taken on my travels.

Just don’t expect any selfies. Even though it’s acceptable now to take them, firstly, I feel conscious taking them, secondly I can’t take them for ****. It’s worse than looking in the mirror! Anyways, enjoy!

Winter Sunrises. I think the intense colours of winter sunrises and sunsets is compensate the shorter days! Winter Sunrise over the seaWinter Sunrise over the sea

The residents of this little alley way I pass on longer runs and bike rides in Masnou, set up their own Christmas lights, leaving a notice asking if people if they would kindly respect them. As in do not steal!Masou Christmas lightsWind, clouds and light. Whenever it’s windy and clear skies in the morning, the wind hangs around for 3 days, yet the clouds come in the afternoon. The light’s different from summer months. It has a colder, sharper, clearer feel to it.Windy day, PoblenouWindy winters day, PoblenouCold day, BarcelonaWinter palm trees Seagulls fishing

I never got around to entering it! It’s wonky, but I feel it shows off ducks cheeky personalities! But I think these are geese not ducks. Ducks, Parc CiutadellaLightening storm out to sea. The quality’s bad, but I wanted to see if I could capture something. I have so much respect now for lightening photographers! Lightening storm at sea
