Dusk retreat

with 6 comments

 

Dusk is one of the nicest times of day to just sit and relax after a day’s work. And if you’re got a cuppa and a good book, it’s even better!

There are three stages of dusk. Civil dusk is when the geometric centre of the Sun’s disc goes 6 degrees below the horizon. The atmosphere still reflects some of the Sun’s light so the sky is bathed in reds and oranges. It’s an excellent time to take photographs of this softer, glowing sky. Nautical dusk happens when the Sun dips under the horizon by 12 degrees and it’s difficult to distinguish the sky from land or water, making it impossible for sailors to use the horizon as a navigation point. Most stars and constellations are now visible to the naked eye. Astronomical dusk is the official beginning of night time and the Sun is now 18 degrees below the horizon, however a very small portion of sunlight is still scattered across the sky so may prevent astronomers from observing some of the fainter stars and galaxies. Fascinating!

Serene Corner

with 2 comments

 

More from The Boardwalk designers today, and I’ve made a cosy corner that is also quite restful. It’s really interesting to see what sort of effect you can get from décor without the warmth of a fireplace. There are tonal colours from both the cold and warm palette but they all blend in well as they are not really strong. Background colours of soft grey and warm wood lend themselves to bronze accessories.

The Blue Companion pupper from the “Playful Pibbles” gacha decided she wanted to be in the scene today!
