Of leaves and swimming

It continues mild here for the time of year,

So, you won’t need too many layers as you join us for a walk.

Let’s start off with a refreshing swim.

First swim

As the sun rises over the horizon, it creates

Copper mosaics,

Sun through tree

And electricity lines glow like

Golden necklaces


While the leaves on the birch trees

Shine like luminous earrings.

Luminous leaves

Breathe deeply – this is where we get our energy from.

Enough energy to finish off our long walk

With a splash.

  10. sono gocce di sole quelle foglie che scintillano, si può pensare che cadano nell’acqua e che facciano grandi scintille
    foto splendide
    amo molto i cani e la faccia giocosa e felice di questo che corre nell’acqua

  16. beautiful snaps!

  17. Oscar, you are like a little golden ray of sunshine! I think I need to send Miss Sophie to visit, so you can teach her water appreciation.

    The autumn leaves have been fantastic this year and I am so grateful that we have seen them for so long. We have just caught the beginning of Stormen Simone down here, so batten the hatches as it’s blowing and raining hard.

    October 28, 2013 at 18:57

  18. Beautiful autumn shots and I always love seeing your beautiful dog.

    October 28, 2013 at 19:05

    Beautiful shots of Autumn colour…

    October 28, 2013 at 20:59

  23. Lovely autumn colour. I’m afraid a lot of our autumn leaves have been blow off the trees by the storms last night so here they’re mainly on the grass.

    October 28, 2013 at 21:05

  24. My gosh, dear – the photos you take are so amazing!:) That picture of ‘golden necklaces’ is awesome! And you know, I think you just reminded me to take a deep breath and live life as it is! Thanks so much!

    October 28, 2013 at 21:20

  25. I don’t think I’ll join Oscar in the lake even if you say it’s “mild!” Seeing that rising sun and breathing the fresh air – that I’d love to do. Fabulous shots, Fi.

    October 28, 2013 at 22:37

  26. Oscar sure knows how to begin and end a morning walk. But the parts in between are absolutely beautiful.

    October 28, 2013 at 23:19

  27. Such beautiful images! Love the pup…but all your photos are fabulous!

    These places we walk with you, these experience bestowed upon us, that happen in a heart beat; simple splendor of nature’s serendipity .Who could not walk this path with us an not ‘grunt’ in admiration, becoming immersed in the exhilaration of it all. I would hope there would be no one on this earth, but I fear there is, and that is troubling.

    October 29, 2013 at 04:24

  38. Brrrrr. I know that water is way colder than I could stand!! Gorgeous photos!

    October 29, 2013 at 04:26

    October 29, 2013 at 10:49

  46. It’s fine for Oscar, he’s got his own-grown wetsuit. All that sunshine, though, gives you so many sights to delight in.

    October 29, 2013 at 11:38

  65. We’ve had a bit of Indian Summer here. I hope we get sun every once in a while through the winter months. Clouds all the time can really get me know. – Margy

    October 29, 2013 at 23:53

  73. Aren’t you blessed to be able to savour moments in such an environment? The photos are awesome. The words seem to flow out of those glorious colours.


    October 30, 2013 at 13:18

    The third foto is super. And the dog is cute.

    October 30, 2013 at 16:00

  76. I’d love the walk, but I think I will pass on the water part thanks.

    No frost yet?


    October 30, 2013 at 16:07

  77. as always i am envious of your world and the way it shines!

    October 30, 2013 at 18:45

  78. Wonderful golden leaves!

    October 30, 2013 at 19:24

  79. Breath deeply – I’m going to think of that always from now on!
    Wonderful that you (and Oscar) are still able to enjoy this time of year so fully. Our waters are starting to ice over, no more swimming here!
    Have a wonderful day!

    October 30, 2013 at 19:35

  80. Little by little, I’m catching up on blog reading. I’ve enjoyed all of your past posts.. you’re having such a beautiful autumn. Of course it’s always a gorgeous season but your eye and camera make it absolutely stunning. And then there’s Oscar.:)

    October 30, 2013 at 20:51

  81. in the first image your dog seem to be created of the water. Kind of strange illusion.:)

    October 30, 2013 at 21:55

  82. You live in such a magical place. And your words float along with the images.

    October 31, 2013 at 07:12

  83. Marvelous photography ~ love the dog ~ so fun and sweet ~ carol, xx

    October 31, 2013 at 17:14

  84. I’ll join you on the walk Fiona, but I might pass on the swim:) Marvelous light and colour in these images.

    October 31, 2013 at 18:01

    October 31, 2013 at 18:50

  86. Great moments captured. I especially love the refreshing swim and golden necklaces.


    November 2, 2013 at 05:50

  87. It’s wonderful to feel each season in Sweden. As you know southern California is not the same, however the Pacific is always freezing. At least I think it is.

    November 2, 2013 at 21:23

  88. RedWillow

    So gorgeous Our whole post. Its snowing here tonight.:)

    November 3, 2013 at 02:46

    Greetings from London.

    November 3, 2013 at 22:32

  90. Wow, those glowing power lines are amazing! It’s as though they were leaking light! And the sunlight through the birch leaves – just beautiful! Oscar, however, steals the show – as always.:-)
