Icy sun

When you get up close,

Humble objects can transform.

Sunflower.jpg

Is it a sunflower perhaps with icy petals?

Or a frozen sun

Glowing next to the physical one?

Two suns.jpg

Even when the object is itself —

A screw with ice crystals —

It still retains its humble beauty.

(I’ve still got some crazy deadlines to meet, so will only be posting once this week.)

Sauna weather

It’s the tail end

Of the Christmas holidays;

Tailend.jpg

Mainly grey and mild —

But we finally got some cold weather.

Frosted snowflakes

Decorate the wall and window of the

Little sauna house on the lake.

When the sun finally showed its face,

The view was gloriously peachy.

Pink frosting

So far winter has mainly been gray and mild,

So we have to make the most of those glorious

Pink frosted dawns with ice on the lake

And furry friends on the jetty.

Wishing you all the much love and joy in this festive season!

Pink ribbons

Before the leaves left the branches,

The sky put on a dramatic show

Dramainpink.jpg

Of pink ribbons

Tied up with lilac and gold.

(Only posting once this week – still very busy!)

Upside down clouds

A lone tree

Guards the lake —

And its perfect reflection

Of upside down clouds.

Still grey

I get a lot of comments about how colourful my world is. That’s because I focus on the bright and the colours.

But as you can imagine, we do get a lot of grey days.

Even then, there is beauty in the stillness of the grey;

Boat.jpg

And in the perfect upside world of reflections.

Bare birches paint abstract pictures in the water;

Buoys.jpg

And the pop of colourful buoys make them look like

Floating sweets.

(The grey almost adds a 3D feeling to the scenes, don’t you think?)

Sun-kissed

Sun-kissed skies aren’t just about

Warm beaches and a hot blazing sun.

Sunkissed.jpg

They are also about

The way the November sun paints

The tree tops with gold and pink.

Drama in the skies

We had a lovely snowfall, which has now all melted away unfortunately,

But I made it down to the lake to enjoy the view before the snow disappeared.

This is our sunset at 14.45!

Clouds created

Lilac veils of drama

And the trees seemed to tickle

The purple bellies of the clouds.

From heron to eternity

What is more delicious than the bright flames of autumn

Heron1.jpg

And the zen of a heron gliding over the water

Heron2.jpg

Before flying off into eternity?

Double moon sky

It’s a frosty dawn,

And the moon reflects in the still waters of the lake

Doublemoons.jpg

Like a penny dipped in silver.

The golden trees are a tapestry of light.

Later on, we get to the little beach by the sauna house:

The moon is gone,

But not the beauty of a calm, early morning with frost.
