No matter what has transpired, or unfortunately hasn’t transpired during the day, being able to look out the window to witness Mother’s Nature’s closing act on the day brings about a calmness, a serenity like no other for me.
Evenings like this provide a wonderful reminder that no matter how wonderful or how frustrating today was, it was but just one day. Tomorrow the sun will rise again bringing with it another day of new beginnings.
Serene is The Daily Post Weekly Challenge for this week!
The great advantage of living so close to the water is that you never know what you’ll see when you look out one of the windows.
Sometimes it’s a fishing boat heading out to fill its nets, sometimes it’s a ferry taking passengers down to Vancouver Island, and sometimes it’s simply a digger floating by at the end of the day!
This photo was taken August 31, still technically summer. However with the dense rain-clouds that rolled in around the edge of the harbour, obscuring the islands behind them, you are instantly reminded winter is not far away.
You wouldn’t think it would be that hard but I have to admit, it took many shots before I was able to get one with the buoy light actually on.
When planning this post for Halloween, it was to accompany a photo of some of our Halloween decorations. Of course, what I had in mind and what was appearing on my screen proved two very, VERY different things. Then fate intervened.
Miss Thirteen is slowly filling the wall over her bed-head with an assortment of frames obviously requiring photos within. Last night whilst combing though the archives looking for an image for her from our time in Iceland I chanced upon this capture.
This image was taken not far from our house in Reyðarfjörður one cold, January evening. The image is blurred due to so little natural light, making it an ideal background for what I needed today. Mission accomplished… now bring on the candy!🍬
A Setting Sun + A Body Water = Glorious Views!
The Weekly Photo Challenge from the Daily Post this week is H2O.
The Daily Post’s Weekly Photo Challenge for this week is… TRIO.
Admittedly I’d been struggling over the weekend as to what I could possibly share for this challenge but come yesterday afternoon the answer was staring me right in the face. THIS was just outside my kitchen window!
Running late, as always, I’d run upstairs to finish preparing dinner before collecting the children from their band rehearsals after school when this caught my eye. As I walked to the back glass door, my breath actually caught in my throat.
The sky almost void of any encumberments, with the exception of a couple of wispy clouds just above the mountain, was changing colour with each movement of the moon. To say it was glorious would be an understatement.
To see such natural beauty right before me in a world full of turmoil is such a blessing. A gentle reminder to appreciate the little things in life, never take anything for granted.
