Autumn scenes

It’s early autumn here …

And the fields are full of wildflowers still —

Flowerpower.jpg

And a dog or two.

(A wolf was spotted here a couple of weeks ago too, but it’s long gone.)

There’s nothing more wonderful

Than running free in autumn colours.

How to photobomb successfully

Get your camera and two dogs

And walk down to the lake.

Admire the sunset with boats.

Turn away for a few seconds,

Allowing your furry friends to get into the photo.

Then click to get a sweet photobomb.

Sunset silhouettes

When you have dogs, there is always the chance

That they will photobomb your shots.

But I think they just add

To the spectacular sunset, don’t you?

Dog with a view

Going down to the lake with the dogs

Is my evening pleasure:

Nature provides the best entertainment

As clouds and setting sun

Turn the waters of the lake pink.

Spring honey

It was a blustery, spring evening —

But the light was delicious.

Ruby jumped up on her favourite high rock

As the honey’d rays of the sun glowed.

She was happy to look over her kingdom

Bathed in golden light.

(Simmie was busy running around in circles of joy.)

The ghost of Christmas past

All our snow melted and we ended up having a green Christmas.

This is nothing new – I found these shots of my dear, departed Oscar

About to enjoy a Christmas Eve swim under a canopy

Of perfect reflections from a few years ago.

A timely reminder that there is beauty

And  joy and light in the world.

The gold in the cold

What a gift from Mother Nature —

Lots more snow!

Ruby and Simmie look

Especially photogenic

With their golden fur against the snow.

Ruby looks good

Dressed in snow sparkles too.

On the way home, I found a mirror and took

A (fairly bad) shot of myself with the dogs.

Ode to a jetty

A couple of weeks ago, we got the news that our beloved jetty (where we used to live)

Had been removed because it was old and rickety.

Jump.jpg

That was part of its charm:

We loved the way it curved and warped and bent;

The way it seemed to stretch out to infinity.

Rubymist.jpg

It was a big part of the children’s childhood —

Peaceful moments under big skies;

Joy2.jpg

And it was there I enjoyed so many moments

With a best furry buddy.

RIP, dear old jetty – you will be missed!

(Luckily, I took a lot of photos of my favourite place

So there are still plenty to share with you.)

Golden goldens

It was a gorgeous evening

When I went out for a walk with the dogs.

Honey light.jpg

The summer light

Drizzled over grass and dogs alike

Lighting up the fields

With its honeyed glow

Dogs running.jpg

So that there was gold

Both in the sky

And in the grass.

Can a dog smile?

It was a glorious winter day

With snow, sun and sparkles on the trees.

That made me smile.

Frozen.jpg

A long walk with friends

To chase

Chase.jpg

— That’s what made Simmie smile.

Laughing Simmie.jpg

After two hours of running around

And enjoying the scenery —

We were all tired and happy.

(That’s my Ruby on the right as you look at the photo and Simmie on the back left

With Jessie, Ruby’s puppy, standing in front of him.)
