Serenade

What better way to serenade

The late September sky of

Purple and gold

Lake

Than with a jump

Of joy –

Oscar-equinox-jump

Followed by a long moment

Enjoying the golden ripples

Of the reflected sun?

Ripples

    Such an amazingly beautiful sunset over the lake. But, of course, the highlight was seeing the dog leap in for a swim.

    October 5, 2013 at 21:11

  86. That sunset.. and Oscar are pure gold. Just gorgeous!

    October 6, 2013 at 03:28

  87. Hudson Howl

    Three images of proof -proof still photography is far from still -take that HD Video cameras. Three images that capture the moment, the imagination and dripping in emotion. The freeze from Oscar, simply crosses over into the realm art and craft -perfecto shtufffs.

    BTW….have you run across the site http://500photographers.blogspot.ca which lists 500 photographers of different nationality, in different countries and as you might imagine with infinite styles of working ……the list can found here http://500photographers.blogspot.ca/p/photographers-by-alphabet.html

  101. So beautiful to see the pink back in the water of your lake Fi. I love the blue and green summer shots, but somehow in my mind your lake is forever pink :-) Oscar is having so much fun, I love the way he’s throwing himself with wild abandon…..makes me want to join him :-)

    October 8, 2013 at 10:10

  102. Your photos always are amazing. But those ones are magical! I’ve got goose bumps all over.
