Changing Light

Our Olhanese apartment block is not aesthetically pleasing from the outside, however inside it is fabulous as are the sea views from the balcony and roof. No wonder we return here year after year. A couple of years ago, when we were in an apartment closer to the sea, I decided to attempt to take a photograph at the same time every day.


After a day or two I struggled to make it exactly the same time and after a week or two I may have missed a day or two. Looking back into the archives though I see for about a month I did take a daily photograph. For some reason I have never got round to sharing the gallery, but then last weekend Jude at Travel Talk invited us to study light and how it changes over time and I immediately thought of my balcony views.

To be honest I think Jude was hoping we were returning to the same location at different times during the same day to compile our six shots. It is a bit of a challenge though for me to achieve that during Covid-19, specially when I am still in England! However I am hoping the next six photographs of the changing light of the same view over a period of time will do just as well. Interestingly the tide seems to affect how close the lighthouse appears as much as the light and the weather. Do you have a favourite?

It had been a good life walking, cooking, photographing, volunteering, blogging, and best of all spending time with MrB, family, & friends. Sadly it no longer is. Suddenly and unexpectedly I have become a widow.

  1. Just gorgeous. Even the grayish day is quite beautiful in its own way. I love the tide changes and I tend to take a lot of those types of shots myself. Beaches are forever changing.
