Today is a cold rainy day in August. In fact, it could easily have been a day in November. I was looking through my own pictures to match the light of Joaquín Sorolla’s wonderful paintings. But I decided to deviate, with this summer image back in June 2015, where people were wearing overcoats. Just like today 😀

The weather has been changing a lot lately. April fulfills her reputation 😊
We went off to the sea, but before we left home we checked the chill factor – and put on an extra layer.
They sat there on the beach in a row, people. The sun was shining, but a strong, icy cold wind was coming from the north. I couldn’t help but thinking how the sea saw the row on the beach. As if a sea can see? They sat wrapped in blankets. The blankets they should have been sitting on. But they stayed. Just a little bit more. The sea was unfolding its ever-changing canvas, and they could miss something: A lovely cloud, a sharply delineated ship on the horizon, the screaming seabirds or the patrol of the oystercatchers. The sound when a wave breaks on the reef, or a nice ripple on the seventh wave. It’s not a goodbye, but see you later ❤
