Say goodbye to the setting sun and welcome to the invading clouds taking over Scarborough. Let the night unfurl.
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.
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… 😉
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.
