52 Project – W2: Clouds

Hubby’s thoughts behind last week’s theme was… “It’s been raining a lot lately, so there are plenty clouds around for you take pictures of!”.

I should know now that things don’t always work the way you plan them, specially when it comes to the weather. I had planned to leave the picture-taking until the weekend as I would have more time to spend on it. Saturday morning was spent tidying the house and the afternoon with family so I didn’t really have a chance to go outside and look for clouds.

Sunday was going to be the day! I woke up early and went straight to the window to look outside and yep there was a cloud, one single grey cloud covering the sky as far as the eye could see! Hubby and I went out to Tatton Park and walked around for a few hours but still things didn’t look any better. I decided half way through our walk to change this week’s topic to something else as the original one wasn’t going to work! I took the pictures and made my way back to the house.

Once at home, I was looking through my pictures when I saw the picture below. I had taken it a few days earlier with my phone, without realizing I had taken a picture with this week’s topic.

It was Friday afternoon when I returned from work, I got out of my car to walk to the house when I saw the sunset below. I took my phone out and took this one single picture, one single shot and it turned out quite nicely πŸ™‚

Happy Pancake Day to everyone!

Day 331 – Sun

The 19th of November was the last day of my Project 365. I can’t believe it has been a whole year since I started the project. I have a total of 365 pictures minus two (two days that I missed when hubby was in hospital and when I wasn’t well). Anyway, I hope to complete my posts in the next week or so and then I will be posting a recap of my 27th year.

Going back to day 328, picture taken as the sun was getting ready to set. Happy Friday to everyone!


Day 330- Framing

I took this photo on a Tuesday afternoon after work; I used the leaves of the hedge to frame the field and the sun getting ready to set.

Day 312- Orange Skies

Our new home is located in a semi-rural location and the countryside around is breathtaking. Every morning as I walk to my car I see something different, whether it may just be the fields, a tractor or a tree. Even the sky looks more beautiful. I guess it is because nothing is on the way, nothing that stops me from just standing there, taking it all in and admiring it.

Day 287 – Sun Rays

One of those afternoons…watching the sun set πŸ™‚

Day 260 – Making up for a lost day…

After not being able to take a picture the day before, this afternoon I went out to Marbury Park with hubby for a long walk. We went there a little earlier so we wouldn’t get attacked by midges. It was a lovely afternoon, weather was still very nice and it stayed warm until we were on our way home. I took lots of pictures, it was very hard choosing one so I’ve asked for hubby’s help and he chose today’s picture. πŸ™‚

Day 257 – The calm after the storm

After a hectic morning trying to sort things around, we went for a drive and a walk. It was on our way home that I saw the scene pictured below. I asked hubby to stop the car (in a safe place) and I got out to take pictures. One of things I love the most about photography is finding moments like this, moments in which you have to take your camera out and somehow make that beautiful moment last forever. I hope that as time goes by I will be able to make more justice of this beautiful moments and capture it just as perfect as they are. Here is my picture for day 256 πŸ™‚

Day 248 – Mow Cop Castle

Mow Cop Castle is a folly located in Staffordshire. We went for a visit after I did some research of some possible locations to photograph. I was expecting it to be in the middle of nowhere but to my surprise it was in the middle of a small town in Staffordshire. It was still very impressive, from this spot you can see two counties Cheshire and Staffordshire. We were pretty lucky as we saw an amazing sunset while we were there. It was hard choosing a picture for this day but this is my favourite. There were some boys hanging around the castle and as one stood looking at the sunset, I took the picture. Happy weekend to everyone!

Day 227 – Rooftops

It has been three weeks since we moved to our friends’ empty house and it has also been three weeks since we had internet. Not having internet has had some positive and negative points. I’ve had more time to do some reading and keeping up with house chores but I have been really missing blogging.

On Day 227 we had a very chilled day, we watched some shows and as we finished I went up the stairs and saw this very impressive sunset. The photo below was taken in our old house and over the last eight years I have seen some pretty sunsets from our bedroom window. I will really miss our old house but I am very much looking forward to moving to our new home and to the new memories we will create there.

Day 215 – Breathtakingly Beautiful Florence

Florence was by far my favourite city in Italy. We were there three days and wish we had more time. As we walked around the city, it just kept on surprising me with something new and beautiful; the buildings, streets, bridges, the art and even the Gelato we had there was delicious! It was very hard to choose one picture and I think the picture I chose at the end summarizes its beauty. Somehow even a sunset looks more beautiful in Florence.
