Merry colours

Christmas Eve…

A song of rainbow colours as the sun sets

At three in the afternoon.

What better way to celebrate than by taking a swim

(If you’re a dog)?

  4. I have a human friend who dips herself in the ocean even in winter too. Me – the idea would never even occur! Love the colours in your photo but I think I’ll stay on the beach, thanks.

  15. Absolutely stunning colors in the sky and on the water and what a happy looking dog.

    January 5, 2012 at 16:33

  16. That image is a stunner Lady Fi, colours and perspective stunning!! Did Oscar finally jump in in the end?
    I enjoy it that you ‘get’ my weird sense of humour haha!

    January 5, 2012 at 16:49

    • Yes, he definitely jumped in! Several times…

      January 5, 2012 at 17:44

  19. My poor dog will never know that luxury. He’s too girthy. He will sink to the bottom, poor guy.

    January 5, 2012 at 17:29

  20. Beautiful colors.

    January 5, 2012 at 17:36

  26. this is utterly beautiful! lucky dog!:p

    January 5, 2012 at 19:23

  27. This is absolutely breathtaking!
    Such beautiful color and light you have captured.

    January 5, 2012 at 19:28

  28. Beautiful, peaceful skies and a great time and place for a swim — if you’re a dog, of course!! Beautiful capture as always! Hope you and your family have a wonderful weekend! Stay warm!

  29. Unbelievable colors!

    January 5, 2012 at 19:44

  30. Wow, what a combination of color there. STunning!

    January 5, 2012 at 19:53

  31. Joyous as always. I assume that Oscar jumped in shortly after this photo was taken, shattering the calm perfection of the water. And enjoying himself.

    January 5, 2012 at 21:22

  32. What gorgeous colours. And one can almost feel Oscar’s sense of anticipation! If your sun is setting at 3 in the afternoon, what time does the sun rise there at this time of year?

    January 5, 2012 at 21:24

    • It doesn’t start getting light until about 8 am or a little later.

      January 6, 2012 at 07:47

  33. What a fantastic photo!!!I hope you had a good start into the new year and have a nice weekend!

    January 5, 2012 at 22:13

  34. Wow! That must have really been something to experience in person :)

    January 5, 2012 at 22:34

  35. Such lovely colors. What a great place you have to view those “perfect” sunsets and sunrises that you seem to have an abundance of. Beautiful, as always. Mickie :)

    January 5, 2012 at 22:58

  36. sandy

    Actually, a double rainbow. I like these colors together.

    January 5, 2012 at 23:10

  37. Gorgeous capture and the colors are stunning. I love your sky shots. It looks as if Oscar is asking permission to go swimming. Or does he just go and jump in? Happy Skywatching and have a wonderful weekend.

    January 5, 2012 at 23:26

    • He usually asks for permission.

      January 6, 2012 at 07:45

  38. A true wonder in light and color, a real recipe for stress.

    January 5, 2012 at 23:29

  39. My golden Jake would have loved to jump in too!
    What a beautiful shot :)

    January 5, 2012 at 23:45

  40. I never tire of this view — especially with your loyal pup in the mix. :) Happy New Year, Fiona.

    January 6, 2012 at 00:20

  41. Awesome sunset ~ Lucky dog ^_^

    January 6, 2012 at 00:44

  42. Oscar reminds me of those people in the Polar Bear Club who swim in frigid waters for FUN! It looks like he’s enjoying the sunset before he dives. Since the dock has no snow, I’m wondering if it snowed there yet?

    January 6, 2012 at 00:53

    • We’ve had only one light snowfall so far this winter, and it looks as if we have a sprinkling on the ground this morning. (Hard to tell as it’s still dark!)

      January 6, 2012 at 07:41

  43. Al

    Lovely shot! My dog hates water, so he never goes for a swim.

    January 6, 2012 at 01:46

  44. Oscar does love his swims!

    January 6, 2012 at 02:01

  45. That would be one invigorating swim! Go, puppy! That’s a beautiful photo. All your photos of this magnificent pup are epic, loving.

    January 6, 2012 at 02:26

  46. Such a soothing color palette!

  75. Beautiful capture with amazing colours in sky and water! The dog is a bonus! :-)

    January 7, 2012 at 06:24

  76. What a lovely photo..no ice there yet? We have some ice on the lakes..but it is unsafe this year because it is too warm. People are taking their fish houses off the lakes..many are just going underwater. It was 55 degrees here on Thursday..and I was stuck in a meeting all afternoon:(

    January 7, 2012 at 06:42

  77. this is so pretty…gorgeous shot!
