Blues and Greens


I have realised I am posting a little about our landscape, the light and generally being outside, it does seem to be a big influence on me right now, it is summer, and warm and the sun has been out and because this is the first summer ever I have worked full time, trying to make the most of those precious moments of freedom.

This weekend was the Australia day long weekend, and our tradition of camping and beaches, we went with my dad this year, who must be one of the most organised and fully equiped campers ever. We spent time swimming, walking and plenty of eating, a little drinking, some Irish music and I managed to make some progress with my crochet. So right now I feel salty and still a little sandy, covered in mozzie bites and sunburnt, but wonderfully relaxed and full of fresh air, I wanted to post the above two pictures I managed to take, one in the evening the other in the middle of the day, I found the colour of the water quite incredible, and so changeable, almost impossible to capture the brilliance of the blues and greens.

What beautiful photos! Thank you so much for sharing! :) The blues and greens are so rich, I can only imagine how much more so they would be in real life! :)

Sounds like you had a good weekend, we went away to the beach for the weekend too - it's such a relaxing break. I love both of your photos but the top one is really beautiful.
