Sunset

Into Impressionism

Late September sunsets

Are when cloud rainbows reflect in water

Rainbow

And autumn dances in

Wearing lilac veils.

Dog days

Sweet memories of

The dogs days of summer:

Purple sky

Enjoying sultry evenings

Of purple magnificence

With my best furry friend.

The blue hour

Late summer is a time for the blues –

Time for the happy blues;

Boat

Time to gaze in wonder

At the ripples

And enjoy a golden sunset

(And a dog).

Strawberry swirl

July was a time of long, long summer nights,

And strawberry swirls in the sky.

Swirl 1

Pink gave way to

Ruby red –

As the sun sank into the lake

With a sizzling hot splash.

Picnic skies

Mid-July and the sun was setting somewhere around 10.30 pm:

Perfect for a late-night picnic on the pier.

Picnic 1

As with all our picnics where Oscar is involved,

We end up pretty wet — whether we’ve been swimming or not!

Picnic 2

Life is pretty good though:

Jump, enjoy life, repeat.

Making photos with our eyes

My ‘baby sis’ and I ended up on Brighton Pier one evening

While I was in England.

After a wonderful time with the kids at the amusement park,

We caught a spectacular sunset over the old West Pier.

West Pier

As we headed back to the car with the lights twinkling,

My daughter burst out, “I wish we could make photos with our eyes.”

Pier and light

Her Aunty Kata (my sister) had a brilliant reply:

“We can. They are called memories.”

Golden

(I’m away at a summer cottage here in Sweden until the weekend, so may not be able to visit you. But I do APPRECIATE all your comments!)

Sunburst

The sunburst

Of a summer sunset;

Sunset relaxation

Long rays of sunlight

Lay flat on the sky

While clouds dance on golden lake –

Sunset 2

And, finally, liquid honey

Transforms a humble thistle

Into a magnificent creature of light.

Honey glow

I don’t seem to be able to get enough

Of our late evening honey glow!

Golden light

It pours like warm syrup

Over water and jetty.

Bonding

It bathes Oscar

As he enjoys the view;

Oscar

And dances on golden feet

Over the lovely clover.

(I lay down in a patch of nettles to take this photo!)

Golden transformation

When golden insects

Dance in the air,

Golden dust

And the setting sun

Transforms people

And a bucket on the jetty

Into objects of beauty,

Golden glimpses

Then the best thing to do

Is lean back

And try to catch the magic

With your wand (or fishing rod).

Swan, bedazzled

Serene

On a carpet of burnished gold

Silhouette

Swims a swan

In the dancing light

Of a shimmering sunset.
