Autumn Winter Project Light

Winter’s here in the North Hemisphere! The sun’s low in the sky, the cold’s arrived. It’s only been a month since the winter solstice and already the days are noticeably longer. Longer than when they were a month leading up to the solstice. Which means spring’s in 2 months!

I love the longer brighter days as the sun starts to climb higher in the sky, however nothing beats the colours and crisp light of late autumn, early winter’s golden hour, sunsets and twilight. The sun’s so low in the sky molecules and small particles in the atmosphere change Continue reading “Autumn Winter Project Light”

Weekend Friday Favourites

After a long hiatus Weekend Friday Favourites is back!

How’s your weekend going? I’ve had some many Weekend Friday Favourites planned over the past 2 months. Planned in my head that never materialised, photos taken never shown. Maybe it’s been lack of motivation or time scheduling with the beach calling. I think it’s more my time management abilities and prioritising the beach. Summer’s only here a little while. Anyways this week’s Weekend Friday Favourites, things that caught my eye or made me smile recently.  Continue reading “Weekend Friday Favourites”

Birthday Month Adventures

It’s been so long since I last said hi, I don’t know where to start! I’ll take it from the middle with the 8th and 12th May, with 2 birthdays celebrations. AJ’s and mine! The most important one of course was Mr Aj’s 16th. The Yogi Cat, Zen Master’s all grown up! Okay, he was all grown up about 14 years ago. Happy Birthday Angelous aka, Mr AJ!

Aj lucked out with morning sunny skies, mine I was back in a thermal top. My usual birthday wish is to spend time at the beach. Continue reading “Birthday Month Adventures”

Chasing Light. Pink Sky At Night

No Weekend Friday Favourites this week. If I’ve only posted once during the week I feel it’s a bit OTT to go look at what I found, look at what made me smile! This week’s been a little crazy, vets, all the Christmas wrapping, cards and Post Office in one day (I wasn’t kidding when I said I leave things to the last minute) and pressing snooze one to many times causing a knock on effect of being busy not productive. However being busy, running late sometimes means you catch an amazing sunset or reverse sunset as I did cycling Monday. So I’ll leave you a few photos chasing light and surfers.

I’m always in awe how the winter light refracts through the atmosphere resulting in sunsets that light up the sky. I’m Continue reading “Chasing Light. Pink Sky At Night”

Optimistic and Vibrant Weekly Photo Challenge

My pick for this weeks challenge also double up as last weeks challenge optimistic.

Sunsets are all about vibrancy, especially in the winter. The pink and reds are always more intense than in the summer. Maybe this is due to how the earth is tilted and how low the sun is during in winter that makes the light/colours more intense. But I’m not a scientist, I just know the colours are easy on the eye!

Dawn and sunrises on the other hand, they don’t always get the big ooo’s as sunsets do. Maybe this is because few people are up to see them. They can be just as vibrant if not more than sunsets. There’s something about seeing the sun rise that gives you a sense of optimism. Same sun, same air, same planet, but no 2 days are the same. Seeing that ball of pink pop up over the horizon adds a little bounce to your step. Even if only for a few minutes. You just got to see a new day saying hello!
