Implausibly pink perfection

Dawn blushes

And tinges everything pink:

View with dog.jpg

As the sun rises

We enjoy a moment of rose-tinted serenity.


The view from my new part of the lake

Is simply stunning on an early morning, don’t you think?

September swim

September has been magically warm.

One evening, my daughter and I went down to the lake

For a sunset swim.


The dogs dived in for joy

While the sun cast its orange glow

On water and stone.

Misty beauty

Sunrise and it’s the autumn equinox:

The lake is still and beautiful

With rising mist in shades of pink.


The moon admires itself in the water –

Reflecting brightly like a silver penny.

(I’ve forgotten my big camera —

But as the saying goes, “The best camera is the one you have with you.”)

Ducks ahoy

It’s not often you get to enjoy

The Manhattan skyline with ducks (and a big cruise ship).

Ducks ahoy.jpg

If you get up before the crack of dawn,

And drive to the New Jersey shoreline

(These shots are taken from Hoboken),


You may be lucky enough

To enjoy the gold of the rising sun

As ducks wheels in the sky

Over wooden pilings

Before honking farewell

As they fly away.

Into the lilac forever

It wouldn’t be summer

Without an excursion down to the lake


And a hot air balloon

Floating away over lilac

And purple.

Catch me a sunset

Enjoy the view.

Throw out the line

Jetty sunset.jpg

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!)

Mist has magical powers:

It can transform ordinary objects

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

Into classic suspense movie shots.

Misty crane.jpg

It turns a sunrise

Into a moment of purple-tinged drama —


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.


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
