Where desert meets sky

Silent sentinels stand guard

Desolate and grim

Weekly Photo Challenge: Surprise

Share a picture which means SURPRISE to you! is Sara Rosso’s challenge today.

Can you imagine my pleasant surprise when I first saw this photo? My two sons in a suit, dancing! They are the ones right after the lady with the handkerchief. They went to Turkey with their dad a couple of weeks ago, to celebrate the wedding of their stepbrother and his lovely bride. When my ex-husband sent me this picture, I was delighted. My boys are growing into men. I know the quality of the photo is not good, but it’s the thought that counts, right? At the next party I’m going to drag them to the dance floor! 😉


Something else that never fails to surprise me is the moon in clear daylight.


And… surprise!

Clouds over Holland

Last night, a thunderstorm threatened to break loose. But after a bit of growling, it settled down again.

I shot these photos with my iPhone, using clarity and a touch of HDR to bring out the clouds better.
