Friendly Friday Photo Challenge – Illumination

OK, so I know it’s Sunday but I haven’t had a chance to post until now.

This week the challenge is to post pictures depicting illumination – sunrises, sunsets, moonlit sky, anythig that shows illumination. And if you want to join in click here.

Here are my choices for illumination. Enjoy!

Photo Challenge – East Coast Sunsets

The Daily Post Photo Challenge – Rise/Set

I’ve been so busy these past few weeks, but this photo challenge was an easy one for me to participate in.

My favourite sunsets are on the east coast and these pictures were taken on October 5 in PEI almost 6 years ago.

Hugh’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Week 17 – Calm


What could be more calming then watching a sunset?

My husband and I went on a vacation to Prince Edward Island in the fall of 2012. It was our first in about ten years and we really haven’t been anywhere since. It was at the end of September/beginning of October. We had no plans and just drove, staying nightly at motels and B&Bs.

This particular photo was taken in West Point, P.E.I. We had stopped for a tour of the lighthouse and ended up staying at the beautiful motel that was attached. There are even 2 rooms in the lighthouse itself, but they were both booked for the night. It really was a beautiful spot. We found this bench just on top of a sand dune right outside our motel room.

This is one photograph that fills me with a sense of calm whenever I look at it. I even had up as the lock screen picture for quite some time.

Do you have a great picture that makes you feel calm when you look at it? Join in the fun and enter Hugh’s Weekly Photo Challenge and show off your pics.

Let me know what you think.
