    Descriptive writing (photo 1)
    The sky was getting red-colored as another sunset was reaching this deserted island. I was laying back resting, in an enormous palm tree, hearing the sweet singing of the birds, while the powerful waves of the immense ocean crushed in the yellow shore. This peaceful atmosphere made me feel as calmed as I had never been before. My mind was clear as I watched the sun reflecting its light in the scorching sand, full of tiny rocks and green leaves that had fallen out of a tree as a consequence of the strong wind. Loneliness made me reflect about my past life and experiences that left scars on me. I was able to overcome those unforgettable moments, however, sometimes, past memories appear in my mind again. I stood there, in a deep silence meditating, as I watched the sun hide and the stars emerging.

    In this picture we can see a man and a woman. They are a married couple who went on vacations to that place because they love nature.
    First of all, the man is standing up and the woman is sitting down. They seem to be in a very high place, very distant to the floor. From that place they can see a clear sky, a large river and lots of big trees. Most part of the landscape is covered in green.
    On the other hand, they can hear the sound of birds and the leaves of the trees waving.
    Also, they can breath and feel the fresh air. The smell of the leaves is also felt.
    The man is raising his arms because he feels freedom and joy. Both of them are very happy to be there.

    The summit of the mountain was breathtaking. I have never been in such unique place in my entire life. The white freezing snow was everywhere and combined perfectly with the blow of the squally wind. The pick of the mountain was spectacular.

    The horizon was infinit, it was endless. It fused with the sky, which had the same colour; a white cream which was completely different to the rest of the skies. It reflected the snow in such a way that I had to use sunglasses because of the reflection. The view from the peak was as I imagined heaven was. The silence reigned in the summit. The only noise I could hear was the one from the wind. The squally wind blow from time to time very strongly and hit on my face freezing my nose. The cold was so strong that I could not feel my fingers. My gloves were not good enough to prevent the snow and traspassed them. My ski-boots were so tight that I could not feel my feet. However, I did not care of all my physical pains. I was on heaven. My mind was in blank and I felt free. As if I cared about anything. All my worries I left them down the mountain. Now it was me and paradise.

    The beach was silent and the sun was rising on the distant horizon. Small waves were crushing against the shore erasing every tracks. The deep blue sea was just a step away and was as blue as the sky above me. I was surrounded by a never ending golden sand, as if the whole beach was made out of gold itself. A hot breeze rushed through my hair, as you sat there you could taste the salt in the air. The soothing sound of the waves and the tree´s shadow made me sleepy. This tree could be seen all around the island, flowers growing nearby had a lovely sweet smell. Time had past and the sky was beginning to change. It´s beautiful blue colour was getting darker and was changing into a slanderous pink. The day was coming to its end and the weather was getting cooler. The wind was blowing harder against my face. All of a sudden, the sky turned black as coal and I realized it was time to go.

    As i laid down under the imposing tree, which created a shadow that protected me from the opressing heat, i enjoyed the relentless sound of the waves crashing against the golden sand whilst i read a book. The salty wind softly touching my face calmed my senses, making me feel drowsy. The glimmer of the sun rays reflecting against the crystal-clear water made my sighting difficult, yet not becoming uncomfortable enough for me to not enjoy the breath-taking view i had in front of me. Far away from myself i could see the cotton-white clouds so far,yet looking as if they were almost to my reach, in contrast to the immensity of the deep blue sea.

    On the budding, spring fields of the coast of England, a family lies as they enjoy the fresh, soothing air, mixed with ocean mist. The recently baked cookies fills up the picnik site with mouth watering smells that inspire their nostrils. They enjoy their meal whilst their dog runs after the chirping birds. Though the family is surrounded by a cool breeze, the perfectly rounded, warm and scrumptious buns keep the weather sweet and amicable.

    The sun is illuminating the gorgeous golden beach as the cold breeze that comes from the theft of the majestic crystalline sea refreshes the calid Caribbean atmosphere. The few humble trees in the area provide their shadow protecting people from the powerful sunlight. At the top of it tree there are several fruits, which some stood out of the green and big leaves stearing at the sea, as I watch the tree a colorful exotic bird maneuvers in the air throw the trees as it swipes a delicious outstanding green kiwi.
    As I walk on the pale sand my feet soak on water while I leave a mark on the beach as the waves tickle my feet`s sole. As the sea comes to an end the waves crash with all their strength to produce a delightful melody.
    The sea perfectly mirrors the clear, bright, light-blue sky.

    The pleasing sound of the blue sea coming and going of his side. The warm sand slippering through his fingers, like his opportunity of finish he’s new book.
    He decided to lay under his favorite tree, where he used to play when he was young. He had never seen something more alive than this magnificent and breath taking tree, he saw it go through the most strenuous storms and never give up.
    He thought that going over all his memories would help him to get some inspiration, admiring the perfect landscape with all it’s perfect shapes and vivid colors. He contemplated the sun, the singing birds and enjoy the soft touch of the wind, but he couldn’t ignore the horrible feeling of not being enough.

    The waves are crushing. The sun is shining, and I’m here sitting on these soft, green leaves. I feel the sand squish slowly through my toes. My all-time favourite place to be is the beach. Since I am a little girl my parents have taken me to different beaches all around the world. I remember that my biggest dream had always been being a mermaid and swim with all the colourful fishes that leave in the sea. I can’t imagine myself in another place that it is not the oasis. I enjoy practising water sports just as my father taught me when I was a little girl. It is the crystalline water and the chirp of the birds that make me want to stay forever. Here the weather is hot but not suffocating. Even though I’m alone I don’t feel lonely. Far away from me I can see the beautiful and huge chain of mountains and some people swimming in the cold and gleaming sea. While I’m lazily resting on top of the mattress of wet leaves I can smell the soft scent of roses and salty water. It is very relaxing for me to walk on the white, soft and hot sand feeling the snails getting into my fingers and picking mussels from its mountains that are in the shore. Other reason why I love so much the beach is the food you can enjoy and savor for example the shrimps, octopus and squirm. How nice is the sea wind blowing my hair! Definitely the beach is my place in the world!

    It is often said that a picture is worth a thousand words. One will only realize this when being able to experience ans acknowledge a once in a life time eyesight, that might just last a glimpse of an eye.
    The cool breeze gently swayed through the snow mountain, brushing my hair, who midly danced to the rythm of the wind, to the music of the high pitched sound that constantly reminded me of the crist weather of this precious white scenario in front of me.
    The sky contemplated and reflected the faultless snow fall, that was like nothing i´ve ever been able to cherish before.
    The sun reflected upon this white ground and at the top of the mountain from where i stood, the view was just empowering, i felt as if no soul could belittle me.
    dark, rocky Mountains at the far background gave me a clear perception of the place i was at, a substancial amount of mountains modelled the place up.
    I felt safe, being at the top of the tallest alp, knowing the brist blizzard that dove in and surfed through the jagged snowy covering wouldnt be able to run me over. Yet, I could appreciate it and see how this invisble wind was now seen, seen as a white intruder, a white intruder that became vaster by the minute.

    There he was at the top of the mountain, the man who challenge nature. He could feel the how his level of oxygen was running out, he could feel the avalanche coming, he was afraid, but at the same time he was confident. As the night was coming down he was able to feel the cold weather penetrating his skin. The man who all the people doubt about his will was now facing mother nature for a battle of his life. The man put on his ski set as he needed to get down to the surface. He started to shiver as his white jacket seem no longer useful. He started to remember how he got in there, the son of the mayor with all his problems arranged, he was trying to prove that he could be something else that he is a hardworking man. It was getting late he knew that if he wanted to prove his point he will have to jump down the hill or otherwise the people will go home and no one will see the man that he really was. He moved to the edge he catch another breather close his eyes and said “this is the moment”.

    With my feet placed on the island, I am surrounded by the smell of the greenery, the patches of different coloured flowers and the screeching of parrots. The Golden sand is magnificent and it makes me feel as if the whole island is made out of gold itself. My panoramic view includes exotic plants, swaying palm trees and forest hills. On the right I can see the endless ocean that seems to merge with the horizon.
    I cannot help entering the water. The sea is the perfect combination of beauty and serenity. With my body in the warm salty water I can appreciate the different species of fishes and the colourful algae. The colours of the sky blend perfectly with the whole scenery. However, I have to go to the village, I am curious to see how people live here. As I walk closer to the village, I feel as if I was in another age. The village is filled with the island traditional culture. The gentle wind is blowing on my face.
    The inhabitants seem to be very friendly and I can see how they help each other. How fortunate for them to live in such a place. I am close enough to communicate with them. As we shake hands and introduce each other, I can see their smiles and excitement on their faces, as if they have known me for ages. Their characters fit perfectly with the view of this paradise island, a place where the world seems flawless. Having found this place makes me feel extremely happy.
