15/52 Weeks of Gratitude

52 Weeks of More gratitude. More hope. More love.

I'm only a few hours back from an early evening swim under the colours of dusk - blues, greys and pinks. The photos are from another trip to the beach early Saturday morning. It was also beautiful day of blue skies and wild surf. I shot the photos looking into the sun and they turned out like this, colours muted. I like the effect. 

 I'm grateful for having the ocean almost at my doorstep, for early morning and after work swims. Plunging myself in the salty, wild water is the perfect wake up after being in an office for much of the day. Shedding layers, becoming alive and free. 

 Joining in with Maxabella for 52 Weeks of Gratitude. 
Go peek around for yourself and discover what other folk are feeling grateful for. 


  1. We are experiencing ghastly weather and I'm itching to hit the waves before winter is upon us. I really like those ocean photos.

    1. Thanks. We were too and then we had a few days of sunshine sneaking through. It'll be your time soon to play in the waves.

  2. Awesome images! I don't often take the plunge into the sea, but I can sit for hours mesmerised by the waves xx

  3. How beautiful. I wish we had the ocean nearby. My littlie in particular really enjoys the beach and I grew up on the Northern Beaches of Sydney so I miss it. Erin

  4. These photos are beautiful Natalie I love the soft colours in them, and the darkness of the ocean. The sea is such a beautiful place to be around, so calming. You are so lucky to live close by:) x
