weekly photo challenge: reward

Posted on

Back in 2006, we worked over 60 hours per week (for 6-months) so we could afford a 4-month trip around Europe. Every time, we travel – the experiences we have are our rewards for all the hard work leading up to make it happen.

One of our earliest memories of that Europe trip was witnessing a Santorini sunset – famous for a reason 🙂

What photo would you share to show reward? See other people’s interpretations here.

Happy weekend everyone!

And as always, feel free to leave us your thoughts.

weekly photo challenge: twinkle

Posted on Updated on

This was a tricky theme but we think we found a picture that twinkled! Don’t look at the sun, look at the reflection off the water 🙂

We took this in Kusadasi, Turkey. We have used a photo of the same horizon when we first participated in the challenge.  Then an hour later from that photo, this happened.

One of the most incredible sunsets we’ve seen 🙂

Enjoy your weekend ahead!

weekly photo challenge: horizon

Posted on Updated on

The past week or so has been pretty hectic on so many levels that we decided to pause from writing about our holidays and try something different. We joined The Daily Post community recently and this is our first post using one of their inspirations. The Weekly Photo Challenge for this week is horizon.

So trawling through our photos, it was very hard to choose a horizon photo that resonated to us. But we decided to go with this one.

The sun is the star at the centre of our Solar System. And in this photo, taken in Kusadasi (Turkey), it definitely shows that it is a star 🙂

We were experimenting while waiting for the sun to set and took this photo through polarised sunglasses and we actually didn’t realise it turned out like this until we got home and uploaded the photo.

The horizon in this photo eventually swallows up the sun only 15 or so minutes later.
