We spent the day at Seminyak Beach. It was a beautiful day, and we all got burnt. We’ve been living in Jakarta for the last six months and, although it’s always warm, we’ve never been in direct sunlight for much time. At the beach in Bali, we all spent so much time out in the sun and everybody in the family went to bed with a little extra redness.
I will admit that in spite of the sunburns, I loved being in the salty ocean air. The water of the Indian Ocean is so warm, far warmer than any ocean water I’ve ever been in, but the sky was blue and the air was fresh…ish. Wonderful day.
I am decidedly literal on this one. The sun was out, shockingly, as I was on my commute home and I found that shooting straight into the sun meant two things: one, if I cranked up the aperture I got this cool star shape out of the sun; and two, I couldn’t see very well for a few minutes and that meant I had to sit in the car until I could see out of both eyes.
I like the way the clouds look painted on. I’ve never shot directly into the sun, but I like the way this turned out.
What do you think?
I love when the sun shines, but there’s something pretty about the way the clouds look like so much cotton candy topping the mountains around here.
I was on my way home tonight and the clouds parted a little and made me think there was a chance I’d see some nice weather. No such luck.
Sadly, as I look at this photo, I can’t help but hope for some Spring weather. It seems like everyone else is getting nice weather but me.
Do I sound whiny? I think so.
The top of Sumas Mountain looked like this about twenty minutes ago.
A little too much like “end times” clouds, but maybe it’s just a sign of the end of winter with Spring coming next week.
