Just popping in to say hello and to share this glorious view
Of frozen birch trees in a glowing winter sunset.
(It was about minus 16 C.)
Life is still very busy with house unpacking stuff so I apologize in advance for not getting round to your blogs.

I found some good memories of Oscar and the kids from a couple of years ago in my archives…
We don’t often have sunset picnics on the jetty – here’s why.
Notice the lovely dry jetty as we unpack our food.
Now look at how wet it is.
And this was the reason why —
Dear Oscar could never resist a swim!

Rainbows are delightful —
Especially when they are decorated with cloud moustaches.
Seen for a few fleeting moments,
They remind us that life is short – and beautiful.

Canoe believe how beautiful the sky is —
With pastel swirls and the lone paddler?
Pinks and purples colour the lake,
Making the drops of water from the paddle glow like jewels.
After a while, the ripples fade,
The sky grows darker and more beautiful,
And peace returns.

The golden light of October
Is as sweet as honey.
LIfe is hectic around here again
And I’m away with work, so won’t be able to comment on your blogs.

A strange pink glow
Beckoned me out into the storm.
There on the rickety jetty,
Was a lone goose
Staring out into the sunset.
It was a moment full of poignancy and beauty.
Just him and me
And the whisper of autumn.

Wide skies of
Red and purple
Invite us to drink
In the wonder and beauty of nature —
And, of course, if you’re a dog,
To take a dip in
For more wondrous sights, please visit: Skywatch.
There’s nothing better
Than strolling along the beach
And drinking in the heady beauty
Of a fierce orange sunset,
While the pink balloon of the disappearing sun
Turns waves into silk.
All photos taken while on holiday in Baleal, Portugal, this summer.

One evening in the early summer
There was a special light in the air.
Midges danced around Ruby like small diamonds;
Brother and sister enjoyed
Some quiet moments of beauty while Simson charged in for a dip;
And a special glow painted the landscape
With summer light.

My daughter and I were enjoying a beautiful sunset together a few days ago —
And she was practising using my ‘big’ camera
When we suddenly saw a floating line of geese.
They seemed to be chasing an airplane.
The geese flew away over the trees
And the plane flew right on up to infinity.
