The light. The sun finally peeks through the clouds and the most amazing, spectacular and hard-to-believe light fills the sky. It feels like you’re trapped in an alternate universe because surely these colours aren’t real in this world.
This happened to me after a miserable day indoors with the ‘flu in Nice. My friends persuaded me to venture outdoors and at the last minute I grabbed my camera, but sadly, no tripod. The next 30 minutes were possibly the most unusually lit of my life.
Rainbows, sunsets, purple and magenta clouds – I kept looking for a unicorn to come trotting around the corner!
I guess my lesson is to always be prepared. After years of coma-inducing and barely-there sunsets, I finally had my deliverance but I was sadly unprepared.
