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”

Eye Test, Heatwave and Full Moon

Happy Friday!

I hope you’re having great week so far! Mine’s gone way too quickly. Monday in a blur became Friday. There’s been a mini heatwave, an eye test, realising it’s been 12 years since I left the UK and my obliques sore from kettlebell windmills. I hadn’t done them in a while and if you think you don’t use your obliques running, think again. It took about 3 minutes into my run to make the connection. 

Anyways, I’ll leave you with a little catch up!

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!
