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.

These are around Midsummer when for a few weeks the sun rises over land Continue reading “Pretty Sea Sunrises”

Flamingo Chicks

Swan’s aren’t the only ugly ducklings. Flamingo chicks after their cute baby chick white plumage turns grey are ugly duckling contenders. Once they hit teenage chicks months their beauty starts to shine. Grey slowly starts turning pink as they start feeding for themselves.

I always love watching baby flamingos grow up in just a few months at Barcelona Zoo. I just hope when they get rehomed, it’s a good place. Nesting started back in May and all are now in nursery or kindergarten. Some chicks only hatched last week. Maybe this was a space thing at the zoo or a hierarchy thing. It’s sweet how they’re being independent but still need Mama and Dad to feed them. Continue reading “Flamingo Chicks”

Anthropologie Giraffe Trinket Dish

Anthropologie opened its Barcelona store last month, so obviously I had to satisfy my excitement by checking it out! I’ve been good the past few visits, no purchases, although the first few, erm…It’s the home section I like the best. One purchase excuse was this giraffe trinket dish that reminds me Continue reading “Weekend Friday Favourites”

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”
