Sunset at just gone 14.30 today has its perks.
The grey cloud lifted to reveal rainbow reflections, ice on the lake
And, of course, a posing Ruby.
(All photos taken with my mobile phone.)

The gloomy grey weather continues …
So, I’m looking back to October’s golden crunch
When leaves floated on fog
And grass crunched underfoot
As we enjoyed the view.

We finally got some minus temperatures and diamond-studded grass
As the sun peeked over the horizon at gone 8 am
Turning everything into gold.

November has been a time of
Mellow fog and bare trees.
The golden coins of leaves
Lie on the ground.
Give the scenery (and Ruby) a misty quality
And make the golden tones of dog and reeds pop.
We finally had some icy weather
But that doesn’t stop Simmie from taking a swim.

Trees rise out of the early morning fog —
They seem to be floating in the rose-tinged dawn.

Our November has been mild and misty
With burnished tones.
Sometimes the sky burns orange
As the geese honk their farewells.
And a stray leaf
Falls gently on orange fur.

Hark! I hear the trumpet call
Of delicious autumn light.
It calls me through the mist
And drenches me with its music.
Every November, we forget how gloomy it can be.
So we need to find small moments of joy where we can —
Be it a serene lake and a dog;
Or the orange burst of a boat
And its perfect mirror image.

I like the autumn skies:
With a dog or two

When I was in England recently, I went on a long walk
Along the banks of the river that snaked like a silver ribbon
Through the Sussex countryside.
It was a hazy, warm day.
Bramber castle and adjoining Norman church
Lay nestled in an autumn tinged valley.
One of the bushes next to the river
Was humming with bright yellowhammers.
(If you look in the centre of the shot, you’ll see their bright yellow wings.)
And, of course, no trip to Sussex is complete
Without a picture of the sheep grazing on the Downs.
