A beautiful start

Tiptoeing out with my best buddy

To savour the dawn of a beautiful new day

And seeing this…

Renewal for the soul, don’t you think?

For more purple in the sky, please visit: Skywatch.

I’m down with a bad cold, so also hooking up to: Camera Critters.

  1. Renewal indeed. How long before Oscar launched himself into that beautifully coloured water?

  13. Magnificent shot. Not only with regard to color, which is stunning by the way, but also with regard to setting. Your dog looking into that horizon, along with the pier extending outward toward it is a superb use of the elements. I love the way you “see.”
