A walk down by a nearby lake at sunset
Revealed swirls of pink in the sky.
The light gently landed on the water
Giving it a gorgeous pink hue.
Later on, a small, silver
Sliver of a moon sailed into the sky
Bringing peace at the end of the day.

It was one of those glorious mornings
Where a blue dawn lay waiting behind the mist;
Ducks floating on a lake of velvet
Lifted the spirits;
And the whole world breathed
In and out –
Speaking of blue serenity.

Oh, the things we do to get a photo!
While I was in New Jersey, I had some fabulous photo sessions with friends.
One was a sunset session in a (secret) location on the New Jersey shore
With a marvellous view of the Manhattan skyline and the Freedom Tower.
I may or may not have trespassed on some waste ground
In order to capture the twisted pier
And the buildings glowing in the perfect lilac twilight.

Just back from Dusseldorf in Germany
(We didn’t go to Brussels in the end).
After work, we walked along the Rhine,
Enjoying dramatic skies
And the ornamental trees along the river bank.
Spring was in full swing:
Isn’t this magnolia in full bloom just gorgeous!

A slightly different view of skies this week:
When the sun hits the laundry room windows
Rainbows explode in vibrant colours
And almost make me want to do the laundry!
(I’m off to Brussels for work so won’t be online that much —
See you in a week!)

And don’t forget to drop by Our World.
I’m off to visit my parents in England.
They live in a small village
Nestled at the foot of the rolling hills of the Downs.
For me, the golden fields
And wide open skies
Embody the beauty of the English countryside.
And finding two horses nuzzling each other
Is just the cherry on top of the cake.
(I’ll be back in a week, but the Our World link will be up and running as usual on Monday evening.)

Blue skies after days of no sun
And the sight of an 850-year-old tree
Tickling the sky brings joy.
I love the way the branches of winter-bare trees
Seem frozen in the middle of a dance.
Nature uses trees and brilliant blue
To create art.

Sometimes, the miracle of a cold winter sky
Isn’t the return of the sun itself —
But the way it shines
On frosted branches
To transform the world
Into millions of glittering rainbow suns.

December was a month
Of pink and lilac skies —
Giving us deliciously
Frosted views at dawn.
For more frosting, please go to: Skywatch.
The sunrise starts off
In lilac tones,
But soon it turns
Into a blushing dawn
With bursts of orange
