Sunset

Ablaze

Isn’t it amazing

How the going down of the sun

Ablaze.jpg

Can be both so bright and blazing

And yet so dramatic and dark?

Silk

Some sunsets take

My breath away

Dogs1.jpg

When the sun kisses the lake

In ribbons of silk.

Fire in the sky

The sun goes down —

Not quietly

Firedog.jpg

But in a fierce splash of red.

A bird floats across the sky.

Fire can also be peace.

Sun dogs

Ruby is getting her mojo back

And enjoying our lake sunsets again.

Rubyboat.jpg

Under supervision, she jumps up

On rocks for treats.

And, of course, both dogs

Are used to our photo sessions at sunset.

Orange love

One day, a golden light burst onto the scene.

Ruby kindly posed (along with a strange shadow creature).

The sky drew lines and swirls

Against an orange background

As the dashing duo posed in the hope of a treat.

Please note: I’m only posting once this week due to work (am away filming) and taking care of Ruby. She had a uterus infection and had to have an emergency operation to remove her uterus and ovaries. The operation was a success, but she needs looking after.

For more dashing stories, please check out: Our World. (I’m the host!)

And later on in the week, visit: Skywatch.

 


Making a splash

Late summer evening —

The sky is sizzling as the sun goes down.

Ready.jpg

It’s hot.

Jump.jpg

If you’re a dog, then you run,

Jump and enjoy!

Wonder

After three months of drought, forest fires and extreme heat,

The weather has finally turned cool and rainy.

It sure looks good!

Skimming eternity

The yin and yang

Of swans

Skimming.jpg

Skimming the lilac-coloured

Water of the sunset

And floating off into eternity.

Strawberry crush

A hot sunset

Sizzles over the lake.

A mother duck and her babies swim by.

Ducks.jpg

Peace descends on the water

In the form of strawberry crush.

When the sun goes down

When the sun goes down,

So do I:

Boat.jpg

Down 160 steps from the guesthouse

To the beach in Herceg Novi, Montenegro

To enjoy the dazzling sunset —

Time for contemplation of beauty.
