Weekly Photo Challenge: Contrast

The inspiration for this week’s challenge is “Contrast”, and here I’m, sharing a very recent image that represents a lot of contrast: the end of the day, beginning of the evening; the dark colors from the previously light sky, kindly kissing the calm ocean waters, introducing the night to observers and by-passers…

The postal card for Archipelago Fernando de Noronha, in Brazil

And, if you’re curious to know how this scene would look during the day, here’s another contrast: the ‘earth-colored sky’ is replaced by a paradisiac blue sky, which is reflected onto the turquoise and green waters…. from a far away view, I’m bringing you all to a closer look at the “Morro Dois Irmรฃos”(Two Brother’s Hill) ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

So, do you prefer the “sunset view” or the “daytime view”? ย I’m totally bias, because I’m deeply in love with the main island, but I’m leaving the question here! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

  1. It’s so hard to choose! I love the sky in the first photo, but the water in the second photo, and the textures are wonderful.


  2. I like the sunset photo better, but both are beautiful. They remind me of visiting Capri in Italy and looking down at the stacks in the amazingly aqua water.

    1. Oh, Ruth, thank you! Thanks for taking the time to come by and share your impressions!
      And Thank You for the award! What a great pleasure! I will make sure I follow the link for the badge, and display it on the blog’s sidebar… Much appreciated! I think I’ll prepare a post about the 7×7 link award… ๐Ÿ˜ฎ Greetings from Brazil!


    1. Interesting choice of words, Toni… ๐Ÿ˜ฎ Not sure about the lifestyle… [smiles!] once in a while, we have a good opportunity to travel, and snap great pictures… ๐Ÿ˜ฎ But I really appreciate your comments – thanks for taking the time to check the blogpost out! Take care, R.


  3. I think both photos are stunning, but my favourite is the sunset shot. I think sunsets have such magical qualities, they transform even the most ordinary view into something special. Not that this view is ordinary in any way.
    Thanks for sharing them ๐Ÿ™‚


  4. Brilliant images! I definitely love the first one more, but I love the burst of colour in the scene shot during the day. I think the rocks/formations are too imposing and scary in the second photo where as the sunset version has a great perspective and the colours set a sort of.. atmosphere, I suppose..

    I’m probably not making any sense, haha, but the first I think shows the scene at it’s best. Both of the photos are amazing though. A great choice for this week! ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Interesting take… They’re called two brothers… From Far away, one gets the impression they’re the same size… From closer look, you can tell the incredible difference… But they’re both gigantic and magnificent! Thanks for commenting, Pavitra!


  5. i am going to sit on the proverbial fence and say that both are beautiful in their own way. while the daytime image is brilliant and vibrant, the evening image is magical. thanks for sharing ๐Ÿ™‚
