Summer reflections

Standing on the edge of the lake,

The water as calm as a mirror,

Green.jpg

I spot swans

On the other side

And a bridge floating

Among luscious green reflections.

Misty beauty

Sunrise and it’s the autumn equinox:

The lake is still and beautiful

With rising mist in shades of pink.

Mist.jpg

The moon admires itself in the water –

Reflecting brightly like a silver penny.

(I’ve forgotten my big camera —

But as the saying goes, “The best camera is the one you have with you.”)

Into the lilac forever

It wouldn’t be summer

Without an excursion down to the lake

Balloon.jpg

And a hot air balloon

Floating away over lilac

And purple.

De-light

(This is a continuation of photos from my last post.)

Oh, the soft golden light of sunset

And a hot haze over the hills of Sussex, England!

Golden.jpg

And to top it all —

The glowing sun

Golden tail.jpg

Turned tails and manes

To molten gold and bronze.

Magical horses

Up on the Downs in Sussex, England,

On a magical sunset evening —

Layers of golden hills

Glow like jewels

Horses1.jpg

While horses graze

And rainbows sparkle.

Lovebirds

I’m off to England at the end of the week —

It’s a very special occasion.

Blackwhite.jpg

My brother is getting married!

So there will be celebrations, the eating of good food

Wedding.jpg

And some long walks up on the South Downs, I hope.

I’m looking forward to a love-filled week.

(I’ll be back on my blog in a week or so. Until then, take care!)

Romancing the earth

Sizzling orange, a glowing setting sun —

That’s when the sky romances the earth

With its beauty.

(Picture taken in Ericeira, Portugal.)

Dancing on the edge

I have lots more photos from Portugal to share with you —

But I thought I’d take a break this week

And show you the beauty of raindrops

Raindrop explosion.jpg

Dancing on the edge of

Beautiful green leaves (some would say weeds).

Raindrops 1.jpg

These shots remind me of a lovely Tagore quote:

Let your life lightly dance on the edges of Time like dew on the tip of a leaf.

Transformative

Mist has magical powers:

It can transform ordinary objects

(Here a crane on the jetty in Ericeira, Portugal)

Into classic suspense movie shots.

Misty crane.jpg

It turns a sunrise

Into a moment of purple-tinged drama —

Mist.jpg

And if it lingers all day,

A misty sunset can turn

Landscapes into paintings.

Sunset surf

After the heat of Lisbon,

It was wonderful to escape

To the seaside village of Ericeira in Portugal.

Sunset surf 1.jpg

We stayed in a beach house

With gorgeous views of the sunset

Surfing.jpg

And surfers gliding over the golden sea.
