Throw out the line

And catch a beautiful

Summer sunset.

(Lots of events planned over the next coming days, so I won’t be able

To visit your blogs. But thanks for your visit!)

Transformative

Mist has magical powers:

It can transform ordinary objects

(Here a crane on the jetty in Ericeira, Portugal)

Into classic suspense movie shots.

It turns a sunrise

Into a moment of purple-tinged drama —

Mist.jpg

And if it lingers all day,

A misty sunset can turn

Landscapes into paintings.

Strawberry surprise

The jetty in my old neighbourhood

Is still as delightfully wonky as ever.

Jetty.jpg

And the world looks deliciously

Enchanting with the rising sun.

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.

Summer swan

Life is busy with deadlines, work

And enjoying the beauty of summer,

So I won’t be able to visit your blogs this week.

Green was the silence, wet was the light,
the month of June trembled like a butterfly….
~Pablo Neruda

Dawn’s blush

Have you ever wondered what a large city

Looks like before the sun is up?

I arrived at Hoboken Park at 5 in the morning

During my visit to New York

To bring you the answer:

The blush of dawn

Makes everything look beautiful.

(That’s the George Washington Bridge you can see.)

Delicious fog

A few weeks ago, I was out on a long walk.

It was eerily misty in the woods.

Mistical.jpg

Suddenly, the sun broke through

Transforming everything into

Golden strips of light —

Light.jpg

As if greeting the early morning

With a hallelujah.

Peaceful pink

A walk down by a nearby lake at sunset

Revealed swirls of pink in the sky.

Pink swirls.jpg

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.

Blue serenity

It was one of those glorious mornings

Where a blue dawn lay waiting behind the mist;

Blue skies.jpg

Ducks floating on a lake of velvet

Lifted the spirits;

Misty ducks.jpg

And the whole world breathed

In and out –

Speaking of blue serenity.

The Twisted Pier

Oh, the things we do to get a photo!

While I was in New Jersey, I had some fabulous photo sessions with friends.

Twisted pier 1 copy.jpg

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

Freedom Tower dusk copy.jpg

In order to capture the twisted pier

And the buildings glowing in the perfect lilac twilight.
