CFFC: Sunset to Sunrise

  1. So lovely to see these photos and be able to say hello to you in wintery Sweden . I fully agree that looking at such images can make us regard actual life around us more accurately . . . *smile* Not having ever been a ‘morning person’ its beauties are an unknown entity to me . . . but give me twilight . . . it is a balm to my soul . . .. .Had never thought in terms of a sunset needing cloudy skies to be really effective . . . I can see it being true . . . but as ‘Eha’ means the ‘last light of the day’ I’ll take it the way it comes . . . . be well . . .

    • Good Morning, we had a little bit of snow the other evening, but it didn’t stay, the ground was too wet. I really hope that we will get some white winter this year, haven’t had a serious winter since 2010-11. I want seasons to be as they should be. Don’t want a green winter. I’m both morning and night person!!! Now as a pensioner I can take an afternoon nap. Thank you so much for your kind comment.

    • Eha, you are wise as an owl. *smile We hadn’t have one day of sunshine yet in December. It’s going to be 31 shades of grey. Hate it … to have all the lamps on the full day. No snow … only grey. So not much of a winter yet up here and I doubt we will get any here in down in the South. Up in the North, they have got quite a lot of snow.
      I would love to live where I could enjoy a full view of sunrise and sunset. The moon .. I see without problems. Love the moon. *smile As a child I always talked to the moon, so my mum said that I’m full of moonlight. Such a lovely comment.

  2. Lovely selection, Vivi! A cloudy sky is, indeed, necessary for a great sunset! Some of the best sunsets I have seen have been from a ship….something about that endless horizon

  3. Viveka, your pictures are fabulous as always, but the super moon with all the clouds has such detail and color. I’ve never taken a moon picture that I love. But I love yours. Have a great holiday season in spite of COVID. Take care and be safe. 🙂

    • Marsha, I think we are in love with the moon … only wish we kept it alone. My mum always said that I’m full of moonlight because as a child I talked to the moon. No trip to Portugal … too much going on everywhere … so I have to rebook for next year. Next year is going to be a lot better, but I don’t think it will be like it was before COVID-19 … I hope we will make things better when we start all over again. Thank yu so much for your lovely comment. Be careful out there. Please!!!

      • You be careful, too Viv. We need to travel again! 🙂 I don’t think I talked to the moon as a child. It was a fuzzy ball in the sky. I love it as an adult. 🙂

      • Marsha, we need to travel … travel a lot … loads of flight tickets hanging in the air with different airlines. 2021 is going to be busy. Bring it on – give the 2 shots … and I will be up there. *smile
        I was so fascinated by the moon as a child. Sitting on the window sill talking about everything – it did up to 12-14 years of age. My best friend, always listing … never talked back *laughing
