Magic of light

The last days have been stormy, we got a dark sky with thunderstorm and plenty of rain, that is urgently needed for agriculture and human use, of course. I was happy to see some rainfall, but at the same time, this situation reminded me how difficult it was in Germany during the winter: so many dark weeks with rain or snow and temperatures below zero.
Today, the sun is back, and as the countdown for the festive season has begun, lights will be switched on soon in our town.

I have been working on a photograph series about skies for a couple of years now, I think I have enough of them to show you the result, my Skies gallery on Fine Art America. Most of the pictures (but not all) were taken in the autumn or winter: here in Spain, it is the best season for colourful skies. 
No, I cannot offer any super moon: it was too cloudy, and the next night, the moon did not look like bigger than a normal full moon (at least my impression as non-specialist), so I did not take any picture ;-)

Trying to concentrate on art while everybody is talking about politics... ;-)

Chestnuts on the beach

On Sunday, the clocks went back! I always love this special weekend with an extra hour to sleep. And it is still so warm at the moment that you can buy your chestnuts (typical winter street food here) and eat them on the beach!
