The Balm of Pale

Just two shots (believe it or not!) from the Jaffna Lagoon:

We arrived at dusk

Lagoon at Dusk Pink and Blueand just a little later dusk had morphed into the blue hour – but, it being Paradise, and just a few degrees north of the equator, the blue hour was in reality a few blue moments …

  1. Oh my, I thought I loved the first one, but then I saw the second one and fell in love, it’s so soothing. What a stunning part of the world! 🙂

    • It is, Ailsa – stunning! So glad you liked the blue moment, that was as surprising as it was beautiful and I’ve been wondering how to display them alone, so many thanks for your Pale challenge! In fact I think it gives me the excuse to do another series … 🙂

  2. How stunning!
    I’ve often wondered about sun up and sundown close to the equator.
    What gorgeous shots. I imagine standing within that strange light creates memories lasting quite a long time.

    • No time for that, Christine! Within a few moments it was completely dark and we were I another world, the few meager lights strung out along the shoreline looking like little stars. I’m so glad we went out there so I could shoot it – now I can contemplate it!

  4. Stunning photos. I just love the pink sky above the blue sea. Fabulous!! I have yet to capture the ‘blue hour’. In fact, I don’t think I’ve ever seen it personally. Thank you.

  5. I love the first shot in particular – the colours, lines and textures, and the second is great contrast… “The sky grew darker, painted blue on blue, one stroke at a time, into deeper and deeper shades of night.” Haruki Murakami, Dance Dance Dance
