Trumpeting light

Is that an angel —

Or an elephant —

Trumpeting across the horizon at sunset?

(In other news, WordPress informs me

That I’ve been blogging for nine years!

Thank you for sticking with me all these years.)

Strawberry sizzle

Sometimes, the best part of a sunset

Is when the sun sinks below the horizon.

Strawberry peace.jpg

Then all sorts of magic can happen:

A strawberry sizzle in the sky

Or the rich perfection

Of sky kissing waves at the beach.

(I’m on my last week of holiday and want to spend as much time away from the computer as possible, so may not be around too much.)

Fire in the sky

The blazing sunset

Sets the world on fire

And paints the sky

In the colours of fire and passion.

Sunset love

UPDATE: I’m sick at the moment and won’t get round to visiting you all. 

Sometimes a sunset

Just makes you shout out with joy:

Heartsunset.jpg

I ❤ sunsets!

The beaches of Conil in Spain

Were perfect for enjoying

A dazzling setting of the sun.

Hallelujah chorus

A choir of glorious rays

Breaks over the English countryside.

It’s sunset

And you can almost hear the angels sing.

Golden nights

The long light evenings in Scandinavia

Are called white nights because it never really gets dark.

Summersundogs.jpg

But for me, they will always be

Dazzling, honey’d golden nights,

Where the setting sun

Matches the red fur of my dogs.

Golden joy

It’s almost impossible to photograph a summer sunset

As the sun goes down so very late.

Goldenwithbird.jpg

Even at 9.30 or 10 in the evening,

The sun is blazing golden and serene.

Joy.jpg

The evening light is liquid honey —

And when Simmie shakes after his swim,

He creates golden fireworks of water.

New kid on the block

The setting sun threw out a white arc

Of cloud as we walked down to the lake

To welcome the new jetty.

Inspecting.jpg

It is a good place to sit

And watch the coloured ribbons in the sky.

Glitter

Everything’s better with a bit of nature’s glitter —

Whether it’s ducks at sunset;

Ducks.jpg

The sizzle of the

Golden hour;

Bedazzled.jpg

Or the silken ripples

On the lake as the sun goes down.

Tangerine dream

Down by the lake,

The sun goes down in a burst of orange.

Orange.jpg

Simmie gets a burst of energy from the view —

And a swim in the cold water. He’s a happy boy!

Ruby prefers to sit and gaze

At the tangerine dream of another beautiful sunset.
