Peaceful in pink

The view from our balcony in Dubrovnik, Croatia,

Was stunning:

We could see the Old Town and

Its massive walls (dating back to the 16th century),

As well as the Island of Lokrum

And a peaceful pink sunset over the bay.

Beautiful Kotor Bay

The Bay of Boka (also known as the Bay of Kotor) stretches and zigzags

Around the Adriatic coast in Montenegro.

(Photos taken from a moving bus.)

The water is crystalline blue

And dazzling aquamarine.

Did you know that this is the

Southernmost fjord in Europe? (I didn’t.)

The bay around Perast has some delightful islands —

Perfect for a wedding shoot!

And can you imagine playing water polo

Surrounded by majestic mountains?

You guess right – I fell in love with Montenegro!

Blue-tiful

First off – a HUGE sorry for not clicking the right buttons for Our World so that the linky wasn’t available last week. But don’t worry – the meme is up and running as normal now – will open at the normal time!

Had a lovely time in Montenegro – it was so beautiful! Work and deadlines tomorrow so I’m just posting a photo I snapped with my mobile phone from the bus window.

(I probably won’t have time to visit you though due to crazy work load!)

Romancing the earth

Sizzling orange, a glowing setting sun —

That’s when the sky romances the earth

With its beauty.

Out of the blue

It’s always fun finding

The quirky side to a new place.

Ericeira, a small coastal village in Portugal,

Blue me away with its lovely azure glass tiles

Blue hands.jpg

And hand-y door knobs.

Aren’t they just blue-tiful?

Transformative

Mist has magical powers:

It can transform ordinary objects

(Here a crane on the jetty in Ericeira, Portugal)

Into classic suspense movie shots.

It turns a sunrise

Into a moment of purple-tinged drama —

Mist.jpg

And if it lingers all day,

A misty sunset can turn

Landscapes into paintings.

Sunset surf

After the heat of Lisbon,

It was wonderful to escape

To the seaside village of Ericeira in Portugal.

Sunset surf 1.jpg

We stayed in a beach house

With gorgeous views of the sunset

And surfers gliding over the golden sea.

Oh, that golden light!

Sometimes it’s worth setting the alarm for 4.30 in the morning

In order to capture the magical, golden sunburst

Of sunrise over the Manhattan skyline.

The Twisted Pier

Oh, the things we do to get a photo!

While I was in New Jersey, I had some fabulous photo sessions with friends.

Twisted pier 1 copy.jpg

One was a sunset session in a (secret) location on the New Jersey shore

With a marvellous view of the Manhattan skyline and the Freedom Tower.

I may or may not have trespassed on some waste ground

Freedom Tower dusk copy.jpg

In order to capture the twisted pier

And the buildings glowing in the perfect lilac twilight.

New York, New York!

Travel is a way of keeping yourself humble;

Of opening up to new people and experiences —

Loveme.jpg

Of finding love and beauty

Everywhere in the world we live in.

Touchme.jpg

I’m so lucky to be going back

To the vibrant city of New York.

I won’t be around until the end of next week —

Until then, take care!
