Sunset Geometry

A sunset scene of a playground with the vertical and horizontal poles of the equipment lit by the setting sun, creating geometric lines. The playground itself has white circles and curved lines for basketball, and the basketball hoops are in the right of the image. The school building itself is a pinky orange block with window and structure lines.

Happy Thursday! Who liked geometry at school? Actually, I did. This is full of just the sort of lines and shapes that I grew to love in those classes. A sunset picked these elements out perfectly, at the same time putting a rosie glow on the school. That’s a colour that I don’t imagine too many students associate with their school days, which is a shame. I hope this brings back some good memories of fun times.

Long Beach Sunset

A golden sunset scene of a stony beach. The waves are low as they wash onto the shore. The distant hills are a little misty. There is a lone figure in the distance , standing on a spit of stony shore reaching into the water. The clouds are broken, and between them is a pale blue sky at the top of the image, but a golden horizon gives the scene a warm glow.
Long Beach at Sunset

There is little enough peace in the world, so we appreciate the calm moments that we’re so fortunate to experience here. I’m very happy to share this one with you all. Our beach walks in Nova Scotia always seem to ground us and remind us of the beautiful natural elements that are always there, despite all the chaos that we see in the news and social media.

Have a lovely Sunday, whatever you are doing, friends.

School Reflections

A long window divided into narrow panes reflects clouds and a sunset sky with a red streak along the horizon, with silhouetted trees. We see what might be a filing cabinet and a tiny print of a hand, perhaps on the wall above the filing cabinet.
Reflecting on School

The other night after I got the “It’s Over” sunset photos, I passed by a school on my walk. I couldn’t resist the reflection of the remaining glow, as seen in the window here. I loved how the elements worked together, in the multi-paned frame, including the trees, clouds and red streaks with the filing cabinet (I guess) and that mysterious little hand print on the wall. Enjoy your day, friends!

This photo is included in my Blur gallery on my site, for anyone interested in seeing other Intentional Blur and Multiple exposure shots.

Golden Hour

The left half of the photograph is mainly slightly orange tinted clouds and blue sky with some white clouds nearer the horizon. The middle to right is golden trees with young leaves stretching into the distance. In the foreground is a tall, dark evergreen tree.
Golden Hour

Just for a change of season as we are having sleet here, I thought you might all like a taste of spring to brighten your day. The sunset that evening was hitting these trees at the top of our field in the ‘golden hour’ and the low cloud was almost the same colour as those young leaves, with that amazing blue of the sky appearing here and there. We don’t get to see sunsets from our house as we are surrounded by very tall trees, so I saw this by chance as I walked across the drive and had to run to catch the special moment. It was taken a few years ago, but I passed those same trees on my rainy walk last night and looked back at them as they are now, leaves ready to fall off, after their full year of growth. The field beneath them is now farmed intensively, but the woodland is still there, rich and full of life, including lots of foxes.
