A new dawn

It’s a new day, a new season.

The rising sun reminds me of the beauty in the world.

New dawn

Satin reflections on the lake

Bring a sense of calm;


And my jetty always has the most

Beautiful views.

(This is Ruby: Oscar’s great-granddaughter, who is now our dog.)

  1. Ruby is a gorgeous girl! Magnificent genes! I am so sorry about your boy. I understand the depth of your sorrow having lost my “forever girl” almost two years ago now. My pain has eased, but there is a place in my heart that will never be filled the same way. Gorgeous views of a magical place! You express your love so eloquently with your words and photos!


  2. These photographs are breathtaking, Fiona! I am in awe at their beauty! I am such a lover of the sky, so these images really touched me.

    “(This is Ruby: Oscar’s great-granddaughter, who is now our dog.)”

    She’s precious!


  3. I’m so happy that Oscar’s magnificent genes live on in the beautiful Ruby and that you have her. Still so very sad for the loss of your wonderful boy. So many times over the years I had fantasized about visiting you and getting meet him in person. No matter how long we have them, it’s never long enough. What cruelty that our fur babies come into our lives for such a short time. Know that you and your family are in my thoughts and Oscar will always be in my memory still making me smile. Big hugs, my friend.


  4. Fiona, my Frend.
    I’m so sorry.
    I loved Oscar. He was a wonderful dog.

    Well, that is the great-granddaughter of Ruby
    Already I love her.

    Kisses and greetings.


  5. Hello Ruby!!! Nice to meet you. You come from good ‘stock’ and Oscar lived a long, healthy, happy life as I hope you will!!

    LOVED all your satin morning skies and reflections Fiona.


  6. HI, Ruby is gorgeous –but I’m sure you will always miss and talk about Oscar. I will never ever look at a dock next to a lake and not see Oscar jumping in the water…. Beautiful pictures today. Thanks!


  7. Stunning shots. Ruby is a beauty. I’m glad you have a legacy from Oscar ( of course you would even without a great grand dog but nice to have a legacy you can cuddle).


  8. The stillness of the lake makes the most beautiful mirror to the sky, doubling its glory. Thank goodness for Ruby, where a little bit of Oscar lives on. My dog is named Ruby as well, so it’ll make it easy to remember her name. 🙂


  9. Your jetty does indeed have the most beautiful views Fiona.. I’m unbelievably happy that Ruby is there to share them with you, I think Oscar will be happy also 🙂


  10. that lake looks as beautiful in red/purple as it does with these early morning colours…
    nice to meet ruby, i’m glad for you to have a member of oscar’s family at home! happy weekend, fiona!


  11. That first image is exquisite, Fi, but am also delighted to see the capture of Ruby on your infamous jetty. Doubtless she is already a great comfort to you. Thank you for the glorious photography you share with us .
