Sometimes there’s nothing to capture but turquoise water, waves, and wet luscious sand, but that doesn’t deter me from enjoying the many faucets of this new camera. Continue reading

Brilliant Light Goodnight Sardinia

The first sunset of December 2013 was a blazing bright pinkish/orange. It lit up our living room like a bright disco light.

The Sardinian Sky

The Sardinian Sky

The sky in Sardinia drastically changes throughout the year from bright blue endless skies to deep black unforgiving skies. I’ve been a sky-watcher my entire life, and I’m sure I spent the entire 5th grade staring out the window, day-dreaming and wishing I could fly.

Follow me on a photographic journey of Sardinia’s ever-changing sky.
