I’m sure we’re all waiting and hoping for new beginnings right now. This pandemic is getting old and depressing. We need some sunshine in our lives. This challenge from our guest host Ana of Anvica’s Gallery, is about sunshine and how it helps us get through difficult times with a little self help.

Here’s what she says: “Not every day can be wonderful.  There are times in life when suffering is there, for many reasons, and it is difficult to overcome.  Those moments are part of life and no one gets rid of them.  But how we live those situations and what we learn from them, is within us.   Although a pleasant ray of sunshine always helps, right?”

However, in photography the sun helps us in many ways. First it makes shadows for us.

It can brighten up the gold colored Tower Bridge in Sacramento.

It can help the sunflowers smile and form a sunburst to pop through trees in a forest. It can also be a light at the end of a natural tunnel.

And at sundown it can create magical beauty.

The sun helps us see positivity and can brighten our world. In his blog regarding this challenge John RH quoted some lyrics from “Here Comes The Sun” by the Beatles. Here are all the lyrics:

Here comes the sun, doo da doo doo
Here comes the sun, and I say
It’s all right


Little darling, it’s been a long cold lonely winter
Little darling, it feels like years since it’s been here


Here comes the sun, doo da doo doo
Here comes the sun, and I say
It’s all right


Little darling, the smile’s returning to their faces
Little darling, it seems like years since it’s been here


Here comes the sun
Here comes the sun, and I say
It’s all right


Sun, sun, sun, here it comes
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes

Little darling, I feel that ice is slowly melting
Little darling, it seems like years since it’s been clear


Here comes the sun, doo da doo doo
Here comes the sun, and I say
It’s all right


Here comes the sun, doo da doo doo
Here comes the sun
It’s all right
It’s all right 

Yes, one of these days, it will be alright especially if we do some self help. Oh, if you look for the song, try to stream the Richie Haven’s rendition. I’m playing it now, and I’m feeling better. Thank you Ana!

  1. Sun, sun, sun, here it comes… Wonderful!!!

    I think not only will the sun shine on our blogs, I think we can end up doing a chorus… 😉

    I’m so glad you mentioned the shadows, they’re that other part of the light that we sometimes try to avoid. But the shadows in our life are as important as the light.

    Love your post, thank you for joining. 🙂

    1. Thank you Ana! The shadows in our lives help make the sunshine feel so much better. And it is up to us to see our way out of the shadows and create sunshine for ourselves. Here in the U.S. we’ve lived in the shadows for 4 years. Yesterday the sunshine flowed in!

  2. Terrific post Anne – I too love the Richie Havens version but ah, the Beatles – fabulous! Loved your message and your images, most especially the light at the end of the tunnel!

  3. Love them all, Anne! A beautiful post with tree tunnel and misty trees – cannot go wrong. The two last ones are my favorites together with the palm tunnel.
