The beach in Winter

Pastel colours

Hi everyone! It’s Friday, at last! It’s a special one – Friday the 13th… are you superstitious? I’m am, a little, and always feel that anything can happen on a day such as this one… But then that really goes for every day, doesn’t it? Anyway, to match my silly superstitious state of mind, I dug up some archive material, shot almost exactly one year ago, at the beach. Fancy a bit of beach bumming? Come along!

The weather is mild, the sun is starting to set, there’s a beautiful quality to the light, and lovely pastel tones in the sky…

Last rays

… as the last rays slowly disappear, people are gathering their things to make their way home…

Dusk

… dusk is falling, and lamp posts are lighting up, creating a cosy ambiance over Barceloneta…

Clouds in the distance

… in the distance, unblocked by buildings, there is still a fair bit of light, but clouds are gathering…

Blazing sunlight

… the buildings of Poble Nou and Selva de Mar are ablaze with the sunlight that bounces off their glittering windows, until the weather takes a sudden turn…

Freak fog

… a freak fog hits land and swathes the tall towers at the Olympic Village in a heavy mist. The temperature drops quickly, a stiff breeze picks up,  and people start scampering towards the boardwalk, which is packed in no time as everyone starts moving away from the beach. Meanwhile, at the other end of the beach, the sky is awash in tones of orange and red, as Montjuïc gets bathed in the last on the sunset light.

I hope your Friday is freak-free and your weekend is mellow. See you on Monday? I’ll have more Barcelona loveliness to show you!
