De-light

It’s still very cold in the mornings and evenings (below zero) —

But oh, what a joy it is

De-light.jpg

To see the light returning in shades of orange

And lilac.

Frosted views

The snow is melting and the light is changing —

But who says that winter is without its own bright light?

When it is cold with hoar frost

Lying thick on the branches

Trees.jpg

And, with the sun shining,

The cold can be just as dazzling.

(Photos taken in February.)

Frozen

I haven’t been walking down to the lake that often

As the path is treacherously icy;

But when we do make it down there, Ruby is Queen of all she can see.

Splashes of purple

Look like frozen ribbons

Declaring ‘It’s not spring yet.’

Iris.jpg

No matter how much we pine (get the pun?)

For warmer times, we just have to appreciate what we have.

Spring: Viking-style

Afternoon sunset

Finds us enjoying the cold.

Dogs.jpg

The setting sun

Brings lilac with it

Sunset1.jpg

And tones of

Frozen gold.

Dragon skies

A fiery dragon

Swept across the sky —

Leaving behind

A purple haze.

Veils of fog

Fog – a majestic backdrop

For a red dog (or two);

Doginmist.jpg

Fog – veiling landscape

And sky;

Veilsoffog.jpg

Fog – settling on the ground

Like a silken scarf.

Fog.

Pink popcorn skies

The path leads through

Snowy beauty —

Moody.jpg

 

All the way

To pink popcorn cloud skies.

Romancing the city

Early morning dawn:

I take out my mobile phone as I sit in a car and capture

The romance of the sky over Stockholm.

(I like the way the car window frames the cityscape.)

Sunrise.jpg

On the way home from work,

Lilac and pink clouds

Bid the sun farewell at sunset.

Mist-ical scenes

Come down to the lake with me —

And enjoy the misty views.

Boat.jpg

Let’s walk around the shore

And then explore the little sauna house on the ice.

Ruby.jpg

Come rest a while,

Sit.jpg

And let’s enjoy

The cold and beautiful fog

Foggyview.jpg

As the sun tinges eternity

In colours of blue and lilac.

(Only posting once this week due to a high work load.)

Once in a blue moon

I wasn’t expecting to see the blue moon

At about half-past three in the afternoon.

Branches.jpg

But there it was – gracing the winter sunset;

Rising.jpg

Rising like a balloon

And being released into the sky by the trees.
