Lavender skies

There is nothing as magnificent

As those big lavender and gold skies –

Big purple and gold sky copy

And the total joy

Of two dogs running through the purple:

Living as if someone left the gate open.

    I think the later does more for me then light an colourful sky. Being free an loose appeals to me more of late. Perhaps the lack of sunshine, nothing but thick grey. The weather is taking its toll on my internal eternal thirst to escape, I think.. That said I understand what you mean as well. Mixed emotions. As much as want to be free to enjoy the splendor…………….oh well, spring comes along sooner than later.

  18. Dogs do have the amazing ability to convey and infuse us with their own simple joys. Yay the dogs and some great photos too. :-)

    February 6, 2014 at 16:52

  19. That second photo is out of this world. What are those tracks in the snow? A snowmobile?

    February 6, 2014 at 16:52

    • The tracks are probably from skiers and skaters.

  45. Very pretty!

    February 7, 2014 at 00:05

  46. Unbelievable colours. Pity the dogs can’t see them, but they probably would only overdose on joy and exuberance if they had to add them to the experience of running on the lake.

    February 7, 2014 at 00:07

  47. what a beautiful expanse they have on which to run and play… as always your photos are magnificent!

    February 7, 2014 at 00:39

    Gorgeous – I love the sun pillar in the first shot, and of course the wonderful dogs.

  49. A free world and good life for your two beautiful dogs.

    February 7, 2014 at 01:54

  50. Oh, the joy of seeing a dog running full tilt! Add to it a beautiful sky as a backdrop, and I’d say you have a slice of heaven.
