Nature is a masterpiece

I slowly make my way down to the lake,

Hoping to see autumn miracles.

Stillness.jpg

The early morning is moody and mysterious,

Yet I glimpse masterpieces of autumn

In the gloomy light.

Moody.jpg

As it gets brighter, the peaceful grey sky

Makes the colours of leaves and fur pop.

Colours.jpg

The dogs chase one another,

Oblivious of the copper and gold around them.

The chase.jpg

When I get back to the boat that you see in the second photo,

The sun shines — leaving me with the beautiful taste

Of lemon glaze on water.

  6. I would love to go out on that lake when it is as calm as that, it is a mirror. Wonderful shots as always. P.S. I don’t think the dogs are oblivious, I think they appreciate it all very much :0)
