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”
