My shot of a huge storm clouds that came and went. Lots of rain and hot weather this month of June.
I rarely use filters for my photographs. I don’t really like the end result. I find the natural hues more beautiful , however sometimes a filter can enhance a photograph and make it more appealing.
Yesterday we celebrated ‘Clean Monday’ in Greece. The tradition is that we eat fish and fly kites. It is the beginning of the severe fasting leading up to Easter Sunday in May.
After the storms come the sunshine and the rainbows. In this case a cool double rainbow.
Brighter days will soon come..
Μετά τις καταιγίδες έρχεται ο ήλιος και τα ουράνια τόξα. Σε αυτήν την περίπτωση ένα διπλό ουράνιο τόξο.
Θα έρθουν σύντομα πιο φωτεινές μέρες ..
“Dare to love yourself
as if you were a rainbow
with gold at both ends.”
― Author-Poet Aberjhani, Journey through the Power of the Rainbow: Quotations from a Life Made Out of Poetry
‘The sky’s the limit!’
That’s what they said
Before the great world war
Impossible as it seems in the time of fragility
If you know the past, then you know the future
And the past was just a cycle of highs and lows
Have patience and look up
One day our spirits will soar
We will fly high like the birds
And without any limits.
A few photographs of the strawberry moon and the lunar eclipse from last night. We had a lot of cloud coverage here in Athens and I didn’t catch the moon when it was clear on time. I thought that the dark clouds looked so ominous and a bit foreboding. I took it as a sign that what we are going to see a lot more things that we never thought we would see before. There is a lot of talk from prophets and astrologers a like so I think we are in for a wild ride. What we have seen before and experienced won’t even compare.
The match has been lit…
Greece got another taste of winter this past week. There is snow on Parnitha mountain! Shockingly unusual weather for the month of April. I believe it is God’s wrath. He is avenging the crazies who went to the beach in March during the quarantine. And now we all have to suffer and listen to the gale force-7 or 9 Beaufort winds.
I bet God said (while looking down at us) ‘If you don’t stay inside than I’ll mess with the weather so badly you will be forced to stay in. I’ll make it so windy that if you set foot -even one foot-outside you will be blown away!
This is an incredible inspiring video that helps put things into perspective. Our ancestors had it A LOT worse than us. Terrible things have happened before and the will happen again. It is crucial in times like these to remain calm and to be strong.
I love it when the sky gives us these colours.
LIGHT AND DARK
The pain masquerades as joy
A party turns to drama
How quickly the light can switch
How a pretty face can turn ugly
A soft voice to cacophony
Snow covered mountains to avalanches
Gentle waves to tsunami
The never ending cuts and burns
That will heal again..
Happy Chinese New Year!
A shot of the moon a few hours before it became a ‘super blood wolf moon eclipse’. The moon was visible here in Greece, even though it was cloudy. Unfortunately the action started at 4:30 am here in Greece, and I needed my snooze so I lose ;(
Boy was that moon bright!
The red sky of this past November..
Red sky in the morning, sailors take warning: Red sky at night, sailors delight.
The sky was red at night, so I guess the sailors were delighted 🙂
