Sky photography

Beautiful Sky/Ομορφος Ουρανός

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.

Kites in the air.

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.

Iris/Ίρις

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

Bird In Flight

‘The sky’s the limit!’

That’s what they said

Before the great world war

Unbridled optimism

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.

Dark World/Σκοτεινος Κοσμος

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…

Stormy Days/Θυελλώδεις Μέρες

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.

Light and Dark/Φως και Σκοταδι

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!

Passing Through/Διέρχεται

The smell of rain in the summer air       Η μυρωδιά της βροχής στον καλοκαιρινό αέρα

   everything is changing                                        όλα αλλάζουν

         the sky rages                                                ο ουρανός μαίνεται

     the ground shakes                                         το έδαφος κουνιέται

   unstable mother earth                                       ασταθής γη

      angry since birth.                                   θυμωμένη από τη γέννηση της.
