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! 🙂
