Sunset

Sunset surf

After the heat of Lisbon,

It was wonderful to escape

To the seaside village of Ericeira in Portugal.

We stayed in a beach house

With gorgeous views of the sunset

And surfers gliding over the golden sea.

Gone surfing

On Thursday, I’m flying off to Portugal again with the kids —

Time to enjoy Lisbon and then

Off to the beach for

Surfing and sunsets.

These photos are from the Atlantic Coast, Portugal, taken last year.

(See you all again in about ten days.)

Golden bowl sky

The summer solstice is

A time of beauty.

The longest day slowly

Comes to an end

With a molten bowl

Of golden light.

Summer swan

Life is busy with deadlines, work

And enjoying the beauty of summer,

So I won’t be able to visit your blogs this week.

Green was the silence, wet was the light,
the month of June trembled like a butterfly….

The Twisted Pier

Oh, the things we do to get a photo!

While I was in New Jersey, I had some fabulous photo sessions with friends.

One was a sunset session in a (secret) location on the New Jersey shore

With a marvellous view of the Manhattan skyline and the Freedom Tower.

I may or may not have trespassed on some waste ground

In order to capture the twisted pier

And the buildings glowing in the perfect lilac twilight.

Silent sentinels at sunset

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.

Wet dog picnic

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!

Rainbow is my favourite colour

Rainbows are delightful —

Especially when they are decorated with cloud moustaches.

Rainbow with moustaches

Seen for a few fleeting moments,

They remind us that life is short – and beautiful.

Peace, returned

Canoe believe how beautiful the sky is —

With pastel swirls and the lone paddler?

Canoe_sunset

Pinks and purples colour the lake,

Making the drops of water from the paddle glow like jewels.

Water drops

After a while, the ripples fade,

The sky grows darker and more beautiful,

And peace returns.

Glowing sunset

The golden light of October

Is as sweet as honey.

Glowing sunset dog copy

LIfe is hectic around here again

And I’m away with work, so won’t be able to comment on your blogs.
