Sunset Shimmer – Sunrise Shimmer!

Sometimes I think Ailsa is a mind reader. Her travel challenge this week gives me a great excuse to show you two photos taken about twelve hours apart. The first photo caught my eye when I uploaded the series. It was taken just after four in the afternoon. It’s one of those stop in the road… camera out the window, snap away and hope for the best. Hence the reflection shimmering off the car’s bonnet! If you look closely… you’ll see a hint of shimmer off the road surface as well.

We were out early the next morning and were blessed with his splendour! This photo doesn’t quite do the scene justice. The sea shimmered pink! It was quite a sight! A sight for sore eyes, indeed!

Happy Monday to you all! Just think… next week this time Christmas will have been locked into the memory banks… again!
