Aug 05, 2015 – [Wednesday] Travel Favs: Sunset from a train

Somewhere between Manchester and Glasgow, taken on July 14, 2015

The location of this photo was “somewhere between Manchester and Glasgow” because it was taken from a train during a ride from Manchester to Glasgow. I’m not sure where I was exactly but it was probably close to Glasgow, yet still counts as a “travel” fav because I was literally travelling 😛 I did enjoy this timely sunset, especially as it was accompanied by some dramatic clouds that added to the overall effect of the scene.

Jul 19, 2015 – [Sunday] WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge: Half and Half

Arcachon, France, taken on August 26, 2012

The first time I visited the Dune du Pyla in Arcachon, I felt like it was the clearest day of that summer. The sky was so blue, the sand was so golden, and the stairway built to reach the top of the tallest sand dune in Europe could have been a stairway to heaven itself. The curve of the dune seemed to split the scene in half and half (although the ratio wasn’t exactly 50-50) – blue-and-gold, sky-and-sand, above-and-below, heaven-and-earth, cool-and-warm… 😉

Jun 28, 2015 – [Sunday] WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge: Muse

Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium, taken on February 19, 2012

Nature has always been the perfect muse and such a creative one as well. I particularly love to observe cloud formations because while sometimes dark looming clouds can be dramatic, they are at times amusing. I was taking a walk around the lake in Louvain-la-Neuve when I saw this fire-breathing creature approaching from a distance, as if determined to devour the entire lake. If that was doomsday, it would have been believable as a foreshadow.
