Scattering Skies🌏☁️🌈

Quick Capture – Sunset
I decided to find out why and how the sky manages to change colour. I think that’s what’s so attractive about it. Usually it’s normally blue, so when there’s a slight deviation from the norm; it’s noticeable. It’s not something you see all the time, so when it does occur. It is eye catching, you want to stop everything you’re doing just to capture the moment, before it goes away. The sky is forever renewing itself, so it’s calming to pay attention to it.

Scattering is the term used to describe this effect the sky creates-

Scattering Skies – Science Daily

On http://www.sciencedaily.com , Ackerman says “Because the sun is low on the horizon, sunlight passes through more air at sunset and sunrise than during the day, when the sun is higher in the sky. More atmosphere means more molecules to scatter the violet and blue light away from your eyes. If the path is long enough, all of the blue and violet light scatters out of your line of sight. The other colors continue on their way to your eyes. This is why sunsets are often yellow, orange, and red.”

Essentially, giving where the height of the sun is that day and the intensity of the air. This determines how much sunlight is passed through. It provides more chance, in the atmosphere to produce a variety of colours; if the molecules are able to travel long distance. So therefore, it’s a combination of many factors working together to create an eye-catching end product for certain parts of the world to see.

Next time you’re outside while this happens, don’t forget to stop and stare at this piece of artπŸ‘©πŸΎβ€πŸŽ¨

That’s one science fact learnt for today.

#EverydayTips πŸ”–πŸ“πŸŒ

I’m back again with a short post this Sunday, don’t want to keep you on this page for too long LOL.

I’ll be sharing a couple of tips I’ve discovered over these past couple of weeks. Also, for future reference, I’ll keep it updated whenever new ones come to mind.

Let’s get started..

  • Travel Pillow: most people use travel pillows, when traveling on holiday or long distances. I’ve found using a travel pillow whilst sleeping normally in bed is beneficial. It props your head up, allowing your airways to be clear making it easier to breathe. It also helps support neck issues or back pain, as one part is protected; making it easier for the rest of your body to function.
  • Powdered Spices:Β If you have a cold/temporary flu or have respiratory issues such as rhinitis or with your sinuses. It can help relieve the symptoms by encouraging you to sneeze, when your nose comes into contact with it. Obviously, you’re not going to sneeze into the food, because that would be unhygienic. Take yourself aside when you feel the urge coming on and restore your senses.
  • Exercise/Quiet Time:Β you don’t need to be a fitness fanatic or crazy about sports/going gym, but taking time out of your day just to stretch or focus on your body can make you feel better. You’re paying attention to what your body’s wants and needs are, so therefore you can develop a better relationship with it. You become aware when it’s time to relax and just let yourself be.
  • Activities:Β Everyone has their own activities they like doing, whether it’s doing make up, playing football, cooking or playing music. Or even praying/meditating. When you enjoy doing your specific activity, you tend to forget about everything else and immerse yourself in that one thing. It makes you feel good and so it should! It makes you present in the moment. Also, if it involves other people, the better.

The Calm Before The Storm πŸŒ²πŸ‚πŸ

The Fallen Orange

What about if there is no storm? It’s Autumn, the leaves have fallen.

The trees have time to rest before it’s time to grow again.

I previously wrote about changes, now it’s further on in the year.. close to Christmas.

The calm could just be a resting period for you to find your peace.

A realisation there is you without everything you do or own.

A restoration place for you to relax and appreciate life for what it is.

A packed out schedule doesn’t always equal a fulfilling one.

Sometimes take time out and see how things are run.

Sitting at home doing nothing is still an activity to a thinking one.

Three In A Different LightπŸ’‘πŸΉπŸ“πŸ•―

Photography is one of the only activities that stills the mind. I think that’s because you get into the zone trying to capture the best shot you can. It takes focus and precision, especially when concentrating on  the main subject. 

First three attempts at object photography:
