As the temperatures drop,
The colours in the sky intensify.
When the ice reflects back
The perfection of a pink and lilac dawn,
You know you’re lucky enough
To be enjoying a slice of heaven.

Novembers past speak of old jetties reaching out
To embrace the drama and gentleness of grey.

After our huge snowfall last week, I thought it would be fun
To fight my way through snowdrifts to capture
The snow-laden clouds.
The snow was up to my thighs.
My feet got cold as it seeped into my boots.
The bench seemed a good place to
Contemplate the horizon
And enjoy the view.

The world changes so rapidly.
Only last week, it was beautiful autumn
And time for swimming in clouds.
The ripples of our actions
Have far-reaching effects,
So it’s wise to act with kindness.
Even a misty and cloudy sunrise
Brings hope and beauty.

Two autumn sunrises:
One blazing across the sky as dogs frolic in the early morning;
The other breathing serenity
In gorgeous light.
For more beauty, please visit: Skywatch.
And tinges everything pink:
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 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.

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.”)

It’s not often you get to enjoy
The Manhattan skyline with ducks (and a big cruise ship).
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.

It wouldn’t be summer
Without an excursion down to the lake
And a hot air balloon
Floating away over lilac
