Midsummer has been and gone… the long white nights stretch out ahead. Hard to believe that the slow march towards autumn has already started. (Click the photos to enlarge.)
At 10.30 in the evening, it is still full of sunlight,
Golden rays bringing smiles to clouds.
The setting sun is an orange egg on the horizon.
A stray black eyebrow crosses the sky
While a ribbon of apricot clouds casts a glow on the water below.
The sky seems to expand with beauty – dizzying in size,
The clouds melting into the burnished copper of the lake.
Clouds, sun, sky – dance in silence
While I —
I become a star on the horizon.

I’m going away this weekend. The destination is a surprise – but hopefully it will be somewhere photogenic and relaxing! I’ll be around to visit you all when I get back.
