Treasure

Beach 1 by Karissa Cole 2015 all rights reserved

The best part about visiting a beach in January is that no one else is stupid enough to visit a beach in January.

Except for this one guy, standing in the frigid water throwing his net out repeatedly. It’s roughly -11°F back home, so I know a little about being cold. But how this guy could stand in the ocean, clad in only a t-shirt and shorts, I cannot fathom.

At the Airport

Airport sunset 5 Karissa Cole 2014

I’m in love with the colors of sunset.

There’s a small airport a few miles from where I live. Its big open field is a great place to watch the sunset, which is precisely what I did yesterday. I pass this airfield on my way home from work every day and I’ve wanted to stop and watch the sunset for a while. I finally got my chance :)

Crush

I’ve got a bit of a crush on lens flares.

I’ve been trying to soak up as much sunshine as I can this summer. Well, not literally. I’m still as white as snow. (My coworkers don’t call me Snow White because I talk to animals. At least, that’s not the only reason.)  I just really love the summer sun, and I want it to last forever. My relationship with winter has relatively recently turned sour, and I’ve really been dreading its return. I kind of wish I could extend this season, summer, just a little longer. It’s been nice so far, it just seems to be running out too fast.

Most of my projects- digital art, crochet patterns, and the like- have been back-burnered in favor of just coasting through the summer days, trying to enjoy it while I can. I’m not quite ready to give of my summer vacation yet. And I figure since fall doesn’t officially arrive for another month I don’t have to.

YOU HEAR THAT TREES? IT’S NOT FALL YET SO STOP CHANGING COLORS.

Some of My Today

The weather was pretty agreeable for most of the day, so after dinner this evening I decided to take a short walk. I took off down the road just planning to walk around for a bit. As soon as I got to the end of my street, past the buildings and trees, I got sight of the evening sky, and went flying back to my house to grab my camera. My glasses nearly fell off my face as I ran back the way I’d come.

Naturally the photographs I took don’t do the scene justice. I wish I could’ve stayed out there and just watched the sky. The grandness of it is pretty calming. But I was actually standing on a pretty busy street, cars whipping by me faster than they ought, so I didn’t get to stick around. I did snap as many shots as I could though. I’m such a sucker for the sky.

I admittedly don’t much like the evenings; I’m definitely an afternoon person – if only 3:00 could last longer. But I still gotta love the way the sunset looks :)

Look Around

Floored by Karissa Cole 2013

I was in the middle of trying to organize and clean up the files on my computer when I came across a few sunset beach pictures like this one. They were all taken on some secluded beach in Florida back in January 2009. That was the first and last time I got to stand on the shore and watch the sunset. It was amazing. And I cannot tell you how much this awakens in me the desire to go back and do it again :)
