Sometimes Reality Is Stranger

I promise I did not edit this in Photoshop (well, apart from to crop some shingle from the bottom). Walking along the beach at dusk yesterday, the muddy sand, sea and sky were all this intense blue colour. I've lived by the sea almost all my life, and never seen this light effect before. And to think I nearly didn't take my camera!

My World Tuesday.

  7. Ah, one must always take one's camera when out for a walk... the same place may appear radically different at different times of day, weather, seasons... makes me think of the series of paintings Monet did of the Rouen Cathedral facade... all different...

    Beautifully blue photo, just need a piece of blues to listen to with it...

  9. Sometimes at dusk, the color of blue that comes through my windows from outside is ethereal, and I often look at it and think, "no one would believe it...." It looks totally like a lit-up stage for drama.

  10. That is a great color. Truly lovely. See, you did find something you enjoyed about winter weather!

  11. Wow! Amazing color. Once in a lifetime, perhaps. Good for you for keeping your camera with you. I caught a crazy reddish dawn the other morning. I'll check to see if you have an email and will send it to you!

  12. Beautiful blue! Isn't it easier to enjoy the things we grew up with, once you've been away for a while? It makes one see the little things as if for the first time... I'm glad you brought your camera along, J!

  14. It was incredible, I've never seen anything like it before, and I've lived in Worthing for about 24 years.

    Janie - good point - I was too busy enjoying it to even remember it was winter!

    Kathleen - I don't have an email on here, I'll send it to you.

    Esther - it's true, I've really seen Worthing in a new light since I've come back from travelling. I've appreciate more things about it, but also been frustrated at aspects that could be so easily improved.

    ladyfi - great comment, must remember to keep my eyes out for slices of heaven. :)
