The view from our balcony in Dubrovnik, Croatia,
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.

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!

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!)
For more beautiful blues, please go to: Our World. (Yes – it WILL be working!)
Sizzling orange, a glowing setting sun —
That’s when the sky romances the earth
With its beauty.

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
And hand-y door knobs.
Aren’t they just blue-tiful?

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 —
And if it lingers all day,
A misty sunset can turn
Landscapes into paintings.

After the heat of Lisbon,
It was wonderful to escape
To the seaside village of Ericeira in Portugal.
We stayed in a beach house
With gorgeous views of the sunset
And surfers gliding over the golden sea.
For more golden skies, please visit: Skywatch.
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.
(Photos taken in Hoboken Park, New Jersey, last week.
This week, it’s back to snow in Sweden.)

Oh, the things we do to get a photo!
While I was in New Jersey, I had some fabulous photo sessions with friends.
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
In order to capture the twisted pier
And the buildings glowing in the perfect lilac twilight.
For more great shots, please visit: Skywatch.
Travel is a way of keeping yourself humble;
Of opening up to new people and experiences —
Of finding love and beauty
Everywhere in the world we live in.
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!
