Skywatch

Tequila sunrise with a twist of fog

The sunrise starts off

In lilac tones,

Dog.jpg

But soon it turns

Into a blushing dawn

Purple ice.jpg

With bursts of orange

And fog.

Golden wonder

The early winter light

Is all about long, warm shadows;

Simmie.jpg

It’s about painting frozen trees

With golden lace

Golden shroud.jpg

And transforming the sky

Into a wonder of pink and gold.

Christmas swimming

It was a cold Christmas morning

And the reeds caught fire in the rising sun.

Early morning.jpg

As the sky spread its golden glow,

Simmie broke through the ice for a refreshing swim.

Abstract skies

It’s been very mild (too mild!)

With misted silver views

Misty silver.jpg

And pastel pink skies.

The jetty

The geese flew away

Can you see them in the top left-hand corner?

Like falling leaves

Leaving behind the grey beauty of the jetty.

Tutus in the sky

Call the clouds what you will:

Lilac tutus,

Boat in pink.jpg

Marshmallow fluff

Or pink candy floss.

They are still just as beautiful.

Furrowed skies

A couple of summers ago, we visited the Weald and Downland Open Air Museum

In Sussex, England.

Pretty Elizabethan houses glowed under a big blue sky

Big sky

And a newly-ploughed field (with a thatched hut in it)

Matched the ploughed furrows of a dramatic sky.

I‘ve got a family emergency and am off to England again. I’ll be back next week.

Until then – take care!

The invitation

Wide skies of

Red and purple

Wide skies

Invite us to drink

In the wonder and beauty of nature —

Sunset lake

And, of course, if you’re a dog,

To take a dip in

Rose-tinted water.

On jetty

Surreal gold

Early morning —

And mist floats like a golden scarf

Over the lake,

Golden mist copy

Turning my world

Into a surreal painting made of light and sun.

Orange beauty

There’s nothing better

Than strolling along the beach

Orange sun 1

And drinking in the heady beauty

Of a fierce orange sunset,

Sun setting 2

While the pink balloon of the disappearing sun

Turns waves into silk.

Disappearing

All photos taken while on holiday in Baleal, Portugal, this summer.
