Sunrise-sunset quickly go the days-a vacation sampler

I just put together a calendar of photos from our recent trip to give Dad for Christmas, and thought I’d share a sampler. You can see a larger view by clicking on any image in the gallery.

Wishing you warmth this holiday season.

Whatsoever is lovely…day 30

After sunset the clouds caught some colors.
After sunset: Residual sunset colors in the clouds.

Even though I posted a sunset yesterday, a sunset seemed like a good way to end this month’s project. But maybe this one with clouds just after sunset is even better. Somewhere in the shadows in the water is the turtle I’ve been watching this afternoon. Just knowing that it is there makes this photo even more lovely for me.

Gan Xingfu (chasing happiness) 赶兴福

This November I am chasing happiness by photographing and sharing one lovely thing I see each day. I do edit the photos, often with an artistic effect like the one above, because playing with a lovely thing makes me happy.

Note: My son checked with his co-workers and, while they haven’t heard the phrase gan xingfu, they thought it was just fine to use.

Whatsoever is lovely…day 29

Sunset over the Pacific viewed from Waikiki.
Clouds at sunset.

It’s almost too much lovely after such a dismal month at home. Warm weather, sunshine and a beautiful sunset.

High tide at sunset

It’s been crazy hot here. But the water is cold, and wading at sunset makes you feel like the world isn’t so bad…

I played with using some of the effects available in the GIMP and the G’mic plug in for it (I think you can use G’mic as a plug-in for other programs as well).

For Jez’s Water, water everywhere and the Lens Artists Challenge: one photo two ways.
