Update - Nov. 5, 2012
Well, there haven't been very exciting sunsets yet, since I wrote this journal. And the one evening that was at least a little interesting, a few days ago, I was still working at my new-to-be apartment... Luckily I did think of taking my camera along, so I could give it a try to see what the photographic possibilities were "from my new balcony"
Maybe not all too bad? Useful?
Let me know what you think!
SteppelandI'm going to move house
Yes, there is no exact date known yet, but within a few months, I'll be moving to a smaller apartment here nearby in the same neighbourhood. So it's going to be a few very busy months for me. The new apartment is very familiar and has many nice memories for me, since it's the place where a dear friend, who passed away only some weeks ago, lived for many years. We had many beautiful hours, meetings and sharing there, and it's a lovely place to be.
It has a beautiful atmosphere, and although I miss my friend, it's somehow nice that I will now live in the same place where we have had so many good times together.
The new apartment has a balcony too, with a lovely view on a little pond or lake - and that may offer great new 'from my balcony' - photography possibilities that I still have to discover... but... I will miss the gorgeous sunsets that I have from my balcony here. Oh, yes, I will have view on the sunset there too, and even more... : on the sunrise as well, but I'll be a few floors lower, and there will be more buildings somewhere in the picture... While here, the view is more open on free sky, with only some tree tops to block (or complete) the view.
So yes, I will miss the sunsets, and therefore, I want to make as good as possible use of the days I have still left here, to complete my collection of evening skies, because I know they are well loved by the many users of my stock images.
So you all can expect to be flooded by sunsets in the coming days and weeks - the result will be only depending on what nature and the universe is willing to display for us in the coming evenings... I'll have my camera ready...
I've started today, with a series of 8 Samhain sunset pictures - You can check them out in my Skies collection
