Light burst

On the way into the office;

A glorious burst of light illuminates the sky.

(Thank goodness for mobile phone cameras!

And apologies in advance if I don’t get round to visiting you – life is still very hectic.)


For more light, please go to: Skywatch.

Pink frosting

So far winter has mainly been gray and mild,

So we have to make the most of those glorious

Pink frosted dawns with ice on the lake

And furry friends on the jetty.

Wishing you all the much love and joy in this festive season!


For more celebration, please visit: Our World. 

And don’t forget Skywatch.

Pink ribbons

Before the leaves left the branches,

The sky put on a dramatic show


Of pink ribbons

Tied up with lilac and gold.

(Only posting once this week – still very busy!)


For more great presents, please go to: Our World and (on Friday) Skywatch.


Sun-kissed skies aren’t just about

Warm beaches and a hot blazing sun.


They are also about

The way the November sun paints

The tree tops with gold and pink.

Floating in mist

The first cool morning:

Autumn mist is golden

As it caresses trees


And floats over the lone dog walker.

(All photos snapped with my mobile phone.)


For more mist-erious shots, please visit: Skywatch.

Floating trees

This winter saw some golden mornings —

With treetops tinged by hoar frost and the first rays of the sun,

Landscape trees.jpg

So that the very trees looked

As if they were floating in mist and diamonds.


For more great dawns, please go to: Skywatch.


As the spring snow falls prettily outside the window,

My thoughts fly away like a bird:

I’m summer dreaming.


For more dreamy shots, please go to: Skywatch.

Purple ribbons

The sun rises —

Presenting the new day as a gift

Tied up with purple ribbons.

(Dog not included… ;-))

Subtle rose

Sometimes dawn comes creeping with its beauty

Through intricate branches like patterns of lace —


Catching you unawares in open spaces

With its rosy fingers.

Romance at the beach

When the dawn paints the sky

In tones of strawberry and lilac,


There is nothing more relaxing

Than enjoying some quiet time

Down at the beach.


The shower may be cold

But the view is delightful.
