Today’s Sunrise, October 09, 2016

I was supposed to go biking today, but I got sidetracked by this stunning skyline.

I watched, mesmerized by the colors, pointedly ignoring my phone’s notifications as I sat on the lagoon’s edge and dangled my feet on the waters. Beep beep, Viber notified.  Another new message from a Facebook page I manage also popped up.  I ignored them and just kept staring at the unfolding sunrise. So beautiful.

I normally spend my waking hours checking my emails and messages, so it was nice to spend this dawn just enjoying the sights.

I wasn’t satisfied with just watching, so I went for a swim. I then took this photo.

Just look at the defined lines caused by the ripples that formed when I waded into the waters.

This was my parting shot as I then left my phone on the lounger while I enjoyed a 20-minute morning early morning swim.

Cottony Clouds over my Paradisaical Workplace

While out on my morning walk/jog, I chanced on this view and couldn’t help but marvel at the cloud-filled sky.

Usually, our skies are just shades of blue with a scattering of cottony clouds here and there.

Here’s a zoomed-in shot.

I actually had to wade into the waters to take the above, but I had no regrets.  The scenery looked so pretty!  I even stopped my morning routine and just lounged around while enjoying the serene views.

This one’s taken on the roadway fronting Galapagos Beach.  The clouds here weren’t so defined, but I loved how the palm trees reflected on the still lagoon waters.

On my way back to my room, my view of a cloud-filled sky was just as pronounced from the back lobby.

Christmas is in the Air (2015)

Are you feeling the Christmas vibe yet?  I am, because everywhere I look in my corner of the world, I see Christmas trees, star lanterns, wreaths, lights, and other Christmas decor.

The above was taken earlier tonight.  While Plantation Bay has always been mesmerizing at night, it is more so come Christmas time because all its acacia trees are festively decked in star lanterns.  And there are lights everywhere!

This is my favorite from tonight’s shoot.  I took it at the gazebo in front of Xanadu Lodge.

Overcast

Since last week, the weather has been really crazy. It’s very sunny in the morning then in the afternoon, the skies become cloudy. Come evening, the rains are torrential and there are even days when the thunder is scarily loud.

Today is no different and while I have been cursing the very unpredictable weather for days now as I have a trip scheduled on Friday, this view makes me appreciate the beauty that only this week’s dreary weather can bring.

Isn’t the skyline so dramatic?

When I took the above photo this afternoon, it had not rain yet, but minutes after, it started drizzling so I had to stop my shoot, but not before taking this shot.
