Pink heaven

As the temperatures drop,

The colours in the sky intensify.

Pink view.jpg

When the ice reflects back

The perfection of a pink and lilac dawn,

Oh buoy.jpg

You know you’re lucky enough

To be enjoying a slice of heaven.

In the pink

As the sun was rising in gorgeous pink tones,

The bare trees of November and the frosted ground

Cast beautiful reflections on the lake.

There is so much beauty

In the minimalism of a buoy stuck in ice

Buoy.jpg

And a float to keep us anchored

In case we fly away on the dreaminess of the

Stunning pink dawn.

The drama of the grey

Novembers past speak of old jetties reaching out

To embrace the drama and gentleness of grey.

Winter haitus

 

One day, it’s glorious autumn

And bursts of colour,

Endofautumn.jpg

The next, it’s heavy snowfall

And the magic of winter —

With autumn leaves still hanging on.

Winterbarn.jpg

Although all this snow has now melted,

(Yes, all melted away!)

We had one wonderful week

Full of the magic of snow.

(I’m hoping it will come back before Christmas.)

Big snow, cold feet

After our huge snowfall last week, I thought it would be fun

To fight my way through snowdrifts to capture

The snow-laden clouds.

Benched.jpg

The snow was up to my thighs.

My feet got cold as it seeped into my boots.

Coldsky.jpg

The bench seemed a good place to

Contemplate the horizon

And enjoy the view.

Wear it like a crown

We had the biggest snowfall every recorded

In November over the past 111 years.

Swings.jpg

Mist rose from the ground

As the storm raged on.

Snowy.jpg

Autumn leaves continued to fall

After it stopped snowing – creating

A curious mix of winter and autumn (wintumn).

It was a struggle to get down to the beach

To enjoy snowy views.

Trees turned into Japanese paintings

With graceful curved branches

Wearing the gift of snow like a crown.

Cloud swirls

The world changes so rapidly.

Only last week, it was beautiful autumn

And time for swimming in clouds.

Clouds+Simmie.jpg

The ripples of our actions

Have far-reaching effects,

So it’s wise to act with kindness.

Ripples.jpg

Even a misty and cloudy sunrise

Brings hope and beauty.

Golden threads

Wonderful things happen when the sun

Breaks through in a ball of golden glow.

Golden glow.jpg

The sunshine hitting cold ground

Creates an angel of light

As fog rises to meet the dawn.

Angel rising.jpg

Cobwebs strung across the fields

Are delicate, golden threads

Cobwebs.jpg

And feathery fluff from wild flowers

Rests among friends in a field

Of golden bokeh.

(By the way, it started to snow here on November 1st!)

Pumpkin skies

Two autumn sunrises:

One blazing across the sky as dogs frolic in the early morning;

Sunrise.jpg

The other breathing serenity

In gorgeous light.

Be still, my heart!

When the sun rises

And autumn leaves catch fire,

Catching fire.jpg

You can see copper flames

Reflected in the lake,

Autumn.jpg

And lemon lanterns

Lighting the way to winter.
