Rainbow wishes

The golden evening light of late summer

Transforms even the humblest of flowers

Into works of art:

Fluff

From downy pillows of fluff

To small wishes ready for take off.

And if you’re lucky,

You might even see a dandelion rainbow.

Lone umbrella sky

The lone umbrella

Speaks of a jetty well used;

Of summer picnics and laughter.

But now, in this glorious moment

Of mist and clouds

And pink abstract –

It speaks of the peace of an early dawn.

Birds on a wire

I’m still in England –

And probably enjoying a view like this one over the Sussex countryside.

I just love the lamps, the birds

And the golden tapestry of the field behind.

Holding up the sky

Inside iron, you can find velvet;

Inside the hard, a soft centre –

And in the petal, there resides

The strength to hold up the sky.

Stormy beauty

It’s been hard taking photos as the sun sets around 11 pm

And rises again at about 2.30 in the morning – and even then it’s never really dark.

Sometimes, however, you get lucky –

A cold front comes in, the fleece goes on –

And you go out to enjoy the beauty

Of a summer storm.

Swan Lake Abstract

Dazzling golden light

Dances on the lake,

Golden swan lake copy

While the swan

Sails majestically on ripples.

Golden ripples copy

As the sun sets and twilight descends,

Lake and swan

Become a beautiful abstract.

(Summer is a gorgeous time in ‘my’ backyard!)

I’m selling these shots as prints, posters, photos, bags and cushions on my Red Bubble site. * End of shameless self-marketing*

Purple rain

Last weekend, a fierce bolt of lightning

And a thunder clap announced the arrival of rain.

Sunset storm

The lone jetty stretched out

Towards the infinity of purple rain,

Jetty and rain copy

And we enjoyed the sight of wild clouds

Rolling in over the lake before running home

Wet and exhilarated.

Roros romance

High up in the mountains of Norway,

The early spring skies are big and wild –

And old houses have birch trees growing on them!

Birch on roof

Roros is an old copper mining town –

And the remnants of those days lend some kind of industrial romance

When decorated with dramatic skies.

Industrial romance copy

As the sun peeked over the ridge of the mountains

Another glorious day dawned –

And I was grateful to be there.

Swan Lake – the frozen version

A while back – before the ice melted on the lake –

Stormy pink clouds attracted my attention.

Swans

 

Among the reflected clouds,

I saw a feathered group of swans,

Enjoying the dawn.

Iced swans

They remained there for a long time,

As if frozen to the ice.

Later on, they were gone

And only their memory — along with the clouds –

Remained.

Sunset post

It’s just another post…

(Excuse the pun!)

Post

And a wild purple sunset

Enjoyed by a lone duck

In a storm.
