All that glitters is gold (to me)

Gold must be the flavour or favour of the month. The topic for both this week’s Sunday Stills and for Life in Colour –  September is gold. I thought I would combine the two to see where it goes. 

Gold in the sky, 
Gold in the sand, 
Gold in the architecture 
Gold in the sea!
All that glitters is gold to me!

Way back in the days when we could -and did – travel internationally, I visited historic buildings and saw golden statues glittering within the cloisters and altars  of churches, and the museums displaying the gilded treasures of history.


It starts with golden entrances, and continues through churches and museums that glitter with gold.  

Windows and water features reflecting the precious glitter of gold.

Whilst I enjoy the glittering history, my favourite golden hues are still found in nature.

Sunday Stills. Just 1 sunrise and several sunsets

Oh yes – do I have  plenty of sunsets and maybe a sunrise?


I’m not so great at getting up early enough to capture sunrises.  We cruised into Gothenburg harbour in the early morning just as the sun had risen enough to hide behind the clouds. Does that count as a sunrise?

Later that week, we saw glorious  sunsets over the Southern archipelago.

The West Coast is a great place to watch the sunset.

Sunsets are such peaceful time of the day to enjoy some solitude.

And then there are the fabulous sunsets I see out my window or through the trees.

This winter month I am just looking for a few hours of sunshine each day – just a few hours and perhaps a lovely sunset.
