Glow


There is nothing more beautiful than the glow in someone’s eyes when they are happy. I have one specific picture in mind just right now and it’s the picture of my son when he visited the hospital right after our daughter was born and held her for the very first time. As I do not share pictures of the kids on any social media platform I will not put this picture up here either. So apologize for the tease πŸ˜‰

The one thing that makes my eyes glow every time I see it (besides my children) is what the sun can do to the environment. In the middle of the day, at sunset or sunrise. How it can make things glow (not just my eyes…) and give you create warmth…

 

 

Ooh, Shiny!!!

First I thought this is all about shiny things and then I read what this weeks photo challenge is all about. It’s about things that always manage to catch your attention. So here is my take on “Ooh, Shiny!!!”

A beautiful sunset always catches my attention. To the point where I just stop talking to people. Rude? Maybe… worth looking? For sure…

And birds. Especially the special ones like our Rainbow Lorikeets or Cockatoos. But for sure eagles as well. Nope, they are not shiny, but they for sure stand out…

Elemental

I sometimes wonder if there is any other continent representing the four elements so well besides Australia. The pictures above of places here in Australia represent the four elements the best for me in regards to this weeks Photo Challenge Elemental.

The ocean stands for water of course. We are surrounded by it here in Australia. The storm stands for air. The moss for earth, because nothing beats that beautiful earthy smell in the forest. And Uluru and the surrounding desert stands for fire…

Satisfaction

Is it bad to say that I find satisfaction in a good meal? But not just that. There is more…

Marvelous views are satisfying, especially after a hike…

A sip of fresh water or a good glass of wine or a fresh coffee can be satisfying…

Putting your feet into warm sand is satisfaction…

Those treasures you find on the beach are satisfying…

And sunsets are of course satisfying…

Unusual

I often wonder what actually is unusual. Is it something we see that we don’t see on a regular basis? Is it something that is not according to what we consider normal? Is it something that simply stands out? So many things, so many situations can be unusual. Achievements of course as well. So I tried to put together pictures of things, moments that I consider unusual. Let me know what you think πŸ˜‰

Bridge

It’s one of the things I’m planning on doing this year: The Bridge Climb of Sydney’s Harbor Bridge. The view from up there must be stunning! I know it will be a bit of a thrill for me as I have my slight issues with heights. But as long as I can put my feet on steady ground I’m fine.

The bridge connects Sydney’s CBD with the North Shore. It’s one of the icons of Sydney, a must see in a sense. And also something you sort of can’t just not see. As I have mentioned, you have the option to do a bridge climb of the Sydney Harbor Bridge, where they take you on top of it, where the flags are. While I’m fine to do it at any time, I think a sunset climb would be the most amazing thing. Here is to planning a new adventure πŸ˜‰
