Thursday could be special

I love this tranquil time of day

An evening’s reflection

I love a bit of drama, and I rather think Paula does too, so I thought I’d post a couple of night time/evening shots from my recent Algarve visit. Every day is special in its own way, isn’t it?

Can you feel the warmth?

Can you feel the warmth?

Almost gone

Of the setting sun

Capturing those last rays of light

Gently captured in the windows

I love the patterns on the wall

Or the patterns on the wall

And the boats, stranded on the shore

While the boats lie stranded on the river bed

I hope your Thursday is special too.  You have the power to make it so.  Paula thinks every Thursday’s Special.  Visit her to see why.



  1. Definitely felt the warmth…beautiful, love this time of day/night. Have a lovely weekend Jo, see you when you get back, and me too. I’m heading up to Cheshire in a few hours for my uncle and auntie’s golden wedding anniversary. Really looking forward to it 🙂

    1. Elisa- welcome back! 🙂 I’ve checked your place a couple of times over the summer but you weren’t ‘home’. 🙂 I’m off to my daughter’s in a couple of hours. Hugs needed 🙂

  2. Lovely stuff, Jo. I particularly like the reflections in the windows and on the walls – but they do need to have the setting you provided. Clever you ! 🙂

      1. I think it’s always a shock to the system to come back from warm climes to equinox light and the subtle warmth of the wintery sun 🙂
        I do love the light though at this time of year….and the early sunsets and late sunrises are a dream for late risers like me. And yes I have dug out the tea lights and they are twinkling on the mantelpiece as I write! Welcome home…

  3. breathtaking photos – the selection you put together were calm and serene – and my Thursday just got better form being here – and before I leave I am soaking it up again – the pink hues in those water shots was a special touch too – have a great day ❤

    1. Wishing you a serene Thursday, Yvette 🙂 Thanks a lot!
      I went nordic walking on the beach and then essential bits of shopping/ironing because I’m off to Nottingham tomorrow. More excitement! 🙂

  4. What a beautiful time of evening and you caught it perfectly.
    Between the dusk and the day, when the daylight is beginning to lower.
    Comes a time in the days occupation and it is known as the happy hour.
    In camp grounds around around Aussie that is.
    I heard those words on the children’s radio program when I was a boy.
    But the last line was children’s hour.

      1. I finally just got to visit your Santa Luzia post, and it brought back wonderful memories, Jo. Thanks for linking to my walk, boring as it was in comparison. I just wish we had gotten off that boat and walked around while I was there, but we were really short on time, weren’t we? I hope you have a great visit with Lisa. 🙂

    1. Glad you like it, Kate. It’s a semi-abandoned water feature in one of the side streets heading into town. I love taking shots of it when it’s lit up too, but this one worked rather well. Many thanks 🙂

      1. I agree with Sue, those two photos have the most beautiful light and soft colours. A glass of wine overlooking that scene would be just about perfect.

  5. Lovely night shots, Jo. I especially love the shadows on the wall, and the reflections in those gorgeous windows.

    My Thursday was special: the lawn mower started and stayed started till I’d mowed the lawn. Jude is planning a visit perhaps. And then I visited friends busy shaping their extensive garden. I hope you too had a special day.

    1. Mine is just beginning, Meg 🙂 I’ll be beach walking with my nordic friends then I have a zillion and one things to do before I go to my daughter’s tomorrow.

      Thanks, hon. 🙂
