Of lilac and gold

When the dawn is ablaze in lilac

And the rising sun paints the treetops gold…

The result is just breath-taking!

(I have a crazy busy week ahead of me

So won’t be around much.)

  7. Wow, that’s impressive. Is that the natural look or is it through a filter or something Fiona?

  78. What a fabulous photo, Fi…the northern colours are so lovely. My husband is hinting a little about visiting Scandinavia. We’ve been to Iceland, which was wonderful (I love Icelandic horses) and would like to see Sweden, Norway, and Denmark. It’s just a thought now. Would be wonderful to meet you (and maybe the dogs) and also visit Mara in Norway before she ups and goes off to work in a different country.
    Just thinking…
