Weekly Photo Challenge Vibrant

Red. That’s vibrant right?!

Every 5th of January in Spain the 3 Kings arrive bringing presents. Father Christmas or Santa makes a few rounds, but it’s the Kings that brings Christmas presents. They parade through the streets with their entourage. If you’ve been good, you get presents and just like if you’ve been naughty Father Christmas stuffs your stocking with coal, the Kings do too. They even have a train just for coal. This lady’s leading that train as the Kings paraded through Barcelona this year. Los Reyes Magos, Barcelona 2016Vibrant Vibrant

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!
