E is for evening

IMG_9652

I absolutely love this time of year. In the midst of winter I forget, I think, just how long and light the evenings are in June: the contrast with the dark and the cold of only a couple of months ago, especially down here, is hard to fathom. A couple of evenings ago we went for a walk after dinner. Just the usual round-the-block stroll, past the pool as the sun was lowering itself down towards the horizon, the streaks of clouds providing the perfect canvas for its rays. The sea was calm, gently lapping against the rocks as the scent of seaweed wafted up through the warm air, and the pool itself was like a mirror. We were the only ones there, apart from a man walking his dog and humming to himself. It felt more than a little bit like heaven.

    Stunning Sophie! It really could be mistaken for another country. Beautiful reflections. I think you are always going to get more intriguing light for photographs at dusk and dawn but I’m so rarely out at those times! One day.. #alphabetphoto

      You’re right the light is just so much more interesting at the start and end of the day – it felt a bit strange going for a walk after dinner but definitely worth it πŸ™‚

    Oh my word Sophie, I just adore this place. What an incredible photograph, you can almost imagine just sitting there with a Mojito in your hand. Love, love, love! Thank you so much for sharing with #alphabetphoto
