When the sun goes down,
So do I:
Down 160 steps from the guesthouse
To the beach in Herceg Novi, Montenegro
To enjoy the dazzling sunset —
Time for contemplation of beauty.
For more dazzling sky shots, please visit: Skywatch.
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!

I haven’t had time to upload and go through my holiday photos yet,
So thought I’d share what makes summer so special.
It can be a stunning swan sunset,
Or a bee pollinating a poppy.
It is the discovery
Of flowers wearing wigs,
And the pink fireworks
Of an onion flower.
For more summer treasures, please visit: Our World.
And Skywatch too.
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!)
I’m going away to Montenegro and Croatia with the kids for a week —
To see new horizons and sights.
In the meantime, I leave you with
A pretty, pink sunset down at the lake.
(I won’t be around to comment on your blogs for about ten days.
But don’t worry, Our World will be up and running as normal!)
For more peace, please go to: Skywatch.
And, of course, Our World!
My hotel in London was right opposite the Tower of London and Tower Bridge.
Here’s Tower Bridge with elegant accents of blue.
It was cloudy for almost all of my visit –
But I did manage one pink morning (snapped on my mobile phone).
Parts of the old Roman wall of London
Are visible every now and then.
(I like the way the old stone is reflected in the modern glass on the left.)
One late evening saw us in Chinatown
Under red flags and a popcorn-cloud sky.
For more postcards, please go to: Our World.
The Shard is an iconic skyscraper in London:
95 stories high (306 metres tall), it’s made up of 11,000 glass panels,
And reflects the clouds. (It was very hot, and cloudy when I was there.)
While I was in London, I came across the Shard in unusual places –
Here it is glimpsed from an alleyway on the other side of the river.
On my last night, the sun finally burst through the cloud cover
Giving me a gorgeous view of the Thames and the Shard.
For more interesting skies, please visit: Skywatch.
Vivid red sky
And a sizzling reflection;
The setting sun balances
Later on, a bird flies by.
(All photos straight out of the camera.)
I’m going to London at the end of the week and then filming in Gothenburg as soon as I get back, so I won’t be posting for about ten days.
For more dazzling stories, please go to: Our World.
And don’t forget Skywatch on Friday.
