One chilly morning, the fog lay like
A silken scarf across the cemetery.
The church rose out of the golden mist
Like a ship riding on misty waves.
A caretaker’s van looked
Picturesque against the burnished sky;
And oh, the trees!
They floated in that sky of molten gold!
I’ll only be posting once this week as it gets crazy busy in the run-up to Christmas.

And don’t forget Skywatch.
A lone tree
Guards the lake —
And its perfect reflection
Of upside down clouds.

I get a lot of comments about how colourful my world is. That’s because I focus on the bright and the colours.
But as you can imagine, we do get a lot of grey days.
Even then, there is beauty in the stillness of the grey;
And in the perfect upside world of reflections.
Bare birches paint abstract pictures in the water;
And the pop of colourful buoys make them look like
(The grey almost adds a 3D feeling to the scenes, don’t you think?)

Sun-kissed skies aren’t just about
Warm beaches and a hot blazing sun.
They are also about
The way the November sun paints
The tree tops with gold and pink.

Our winter snow has washed away in the rain,
So I’m still hanging on to autumn.
(Pictures taken a couple of weeks ago.)
I can’t get enough of the bright reflections,
The emerald of the evergreens
Blending with the fiery colours of the birch trees.
The blueberry forests are green once again,
But I spy a furry friend in her autumn coat.

We had a lovely snowfall, which has now all melted away unfortunately,
But I made it down to the lake to enjoy the view before the snow disappeared.
This is our sunset at 14.45!
Lilac veils of drama
And the trees seemed to tickle
The purple bellies of the clouds.
For more drama, please visit: Skywatch.
What is more delicious than the bright flames of autumn
And the zen of a heron gliding over the water
Before flying off into eternity?

It’s a frosty dawn,
And the moon reflects in the still waters of the lake
Like a penny dipped in silver.
The golden trees are a tapestry of light.
Later on, we get to the little beach by the sauna house:
The moon is gone,
But not the beauty of a calm, early morning with frost.
For more beauty, please visit: Skywatch.
The bare bones of autumn
With rich splashes of colour are delightful.
The fiery lanterns of leaves
Hang upside down in still waters.
And all that gold from the autumn sun
Is reflected back on furry coat and field.

The geese call out; they are leaving.
They look like musical notes stretched across the early evening sky.
Turn into a dazzling orange sonata.
