Outdoors, Weekly Photo Challenge

Ambience

Another weekly photo challenge, another picture of Arnside, Cumbria. It seems that trip there in September provided a lot of material for my blog.

The sun is just preparing to set, the smell of salt in the air and the silence, occasionally interrupted by the rumbling train–railway viaduct seen  on the right.

January…

A year ago I mentioned in this post that I got into a habit of taking a photo of a sunrise on the first working day of the year. I didn’t do it this year, a combination of forgetting to take my camera in the morning (this wasn’t an issue with compact, which I could carry in my everyday bag) and not good conditions for photography. Here are photos taken on the evening of 2nd January instead:

I love how clear the skies are in cold weather.

I just imagine myself aboard that plane off to somewhere warm–Copacabana beach in Rio, perhaps.

So it’s 2017 at last and I got myself my own domain. I have also been amusing myself by working on an ultimate all-genre big fat playlist of the 90s. And I’m not joking about the all-genre part. This is where Nirvana meets Barbie Girl and metal shakes hands with eurodance. I will post a link once it’s ready.

Have a great year, everyone!
