Last week Sunday it was surprisingly sunny and warm, so we decided to go to the beach in Scheveningen.
Taken on 25th March, when we had our first proper picnic of this spring. (no photos of the actual picnic though :-))
Taken on 22nd March.
3rd of January: We had rain and storm all day, so I wasn’t quite expecting this sunset. Result: noticing too late to go outside to get a better view of it. (fallen for that too many times – see great sky, get bicycle out, race towards the river, and arrive too late, even though it’s only 3 minutes to get there)
This one was this morning, while it was very stormy, and the whole of my neighbourhood seemed to be covered under a huge thick dark cloud, while showing bits of blue sky further away. Until photos come with sound, you’ll just have to imagine the howling wind to get the full atmosphere ;-)
These were taken on Christmas day, and 30th December.
Oops, better late than never – these were taken about 4 weeks ago.
The photos below were taken yesterday afternoon, a little before sunset.
The last one of the four was very close to sunset, and was after I’d given up on getting a nice sunset over the river, came back down the stairs and back on the bicycle, and looked back. So naturally I stopped again :-)
This time of year I often miss the golden hour because it happens during work hours. It also only lasts about 10 minutes here; a big (otherwise very useful, don’t get me wrong) dyke between the river and my house is blocking the light…
And is it me, or is the light really more golden in autumn than it is in summer? For the ten minutes I get to see it coming through my windows, it certainly seems to be.
