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?


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.

LIfe is hectic around here again

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

The sentinel

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.

The invitation

Wide skies of

Red and purple

Wide skies

Invite us to drink

In the wonder and beauty of nature —

Sunset lake

And, of course, if you’re a dog,

To take a dip in

Rose-tinted water.

Orange beauty

There’s nothing better

Than strolling along the beach

Orange sun 1

And drinking in the heady beauty

Of a fierce orange sunset,

Sun setting 2

While the pink balloon of the disappearing sun

Turns waves into silk.


All photos taken while on holiday in Baleal, Portugal, this summer.

Summer love

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;

Sibling love copy

And a special glow painted the landscape

With summer light.

Chasing planes

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.

Photos by my talented daughter; editing by me = Teamwork!

Simson loves

To photobomb my shots.

And you know what?

I think the results

Are just perfect.

Summer sun –

Bursting into

Golden flowers.
