Skywatch

Peaceful in pink

I’m going away to Montenegro and Croatia with the kids for a week —

To see new horizons and sights.

In the meantime, I leave you with

A pretty, pink sunset down at the lake.

(I won’t be around to comment on your blogs for about ten days.

But don’t worry, Our World will be up and running as normal!)

Shard reflections

The Shard is an iconic skyscraper in London:

95 stories high (306 metres tall), it’s made up of 11,000 glass panels,

And reflects the clouds. (It was very hot, and cloudy when I was there.)

While I was in London, I came across the Shard in unusual places –

Here it is glimpsed from an alleyway on the other side of the river.

On my last night, the sun finally burst through the cloud cover

Giving me a gorgeous view of the Thames and the Shard.

Balloon sunset

My Saturday nights are fairly exciting 🙂 :

Balloons arriving.jpg

They consist of watching

The sun setting over the lake:

Preferable with a burnt orange sky

And balloons gently floating away on the horizon.

Burnished gold

Another golden sunset:

Trees marching across the horizon;

The burnished copper of the lake

Is still.

I gaze at the scene

In wonder.

Moody sky

Monday evening — I look out of the tube window as we go overground.

I see the drama in the sky and the pastel buildings of Stockholm.

Take out my phone and snap a quick photo.

Golden wonder

A perfect April evening …

A golden sunset

Where the heart is filled

With joy and wonder.

Before the melt

Guess what? The ice has melted!

But only a few days ago, it lay thick

Under a blanket of fluffy clouds.

Ruby loves jumping on stuff and posing —

And I love taking snaps of her when she does.

De-light

It’s still very cold in the mornings and evenings (below zero) —

But oh, what a joy it is

De-light.jpg

To see the light returning in shades of orange

And lilac.

Feeling blue

The snow is gradually melting away —

But only last week, it lay thick in the fields

Below a blue canopy of silk.

Spring: Viking-style

Afternoon sunset

Finds us enjoying the cold.

The setting sun

Brings lilac with it

And tones of

Frozen gold.
