Golden joy

It’s almost impossible to photograph a summer sunset

As the sun goes down so very late.


Even at 9.30 or 10 in the evening,

The sun is blazing golden and serene.


The evening light is liquid honey —


And when Simmie shakes after his swim,

He creates golden fireworks of water.

  1. Golden fireworks so aptly describes it! It’s a tricky business taking shots towards the sun but you have done such an awe-inspiring job with these photos. Thanks for sharing the beauty.


  2. So truly wonderful captures; the final one is amazing… I can’t see such splendor of sunset in here; but, virtually, I enjoy it so much in your posts! MAny thanks for sharing such beauty of nature!
    A great and sunny new week ahead!


  3. Hello, your dogs looks like they are in heaven. Splishing and splashing. Love the golden sunset and images. Happy Monday, enjoy your new week!


  4. You’ve captured the most golden of scenes Fiona, each special and a creation of extraordinary moments in time. Love this entire series.


    1. I think my favourite season has to be autumn from a photography point of view. I like summer, however, as then I don’t need to bundle up so much and I love the long, light evenings.

    Fiona, I LOVE how you expressed that because you’re right, that’s exactly what it looks like!

    Stunning images!

    That final one is AMAZING!!!!

    Have a beautiful week, my friend 🙂


  6. Like you said ‘liquid gold.’ Wow, such beautiful photos. We went to Iceland about a month ago and sunset was around 11:00 p.m. We felt like we never saw the night.


  7. Although we love our dear bonny Bonnie-dog, your photos remind me (in a wonderful way) of our dear darlin’ old Lindy-girl who died earlier this year. I agree with Maniparna Sengupta Majumder (above) that your last photo here is exceptional photography.


  8. Awe-inspiring photographs! You captured the magical moments fantastically. Darkness is already fallen around 20:00 in my part of the world. You really have long daytime at this time of year.



  9. Besides the Golden Retriever and the beautiful images of her….the golden sun, the golden water, and grasses are pretty too!! Your posts are always stunning.
