Subtle rose

Sometimes dawn comes creeping with its beauty

Through intricate branches like patterns of lace —

Branches.jpg

Catching you unawares in open spaces

With its rosy fingers.

The green lanterns

There is something very appealing

About splashes of colour in the snow:

Lanterns.jpg

Green lanterns with the added dash of golden fur

Make the scene even more attractive.

As I continued on my snowy walk,

I turned back to see a lone lantern

Saying farewell in solitary beauty.

Ruby on a rock

The dawn glowed apricot

And the moon hung gloriously golden in the sky.

Ruby loves jumping up onto rocks —

The higher the better.

Romance at the beach

When the dawn paints the sky

In tones of strawberry and lilac,

Pinksky.jpg

There is nothing more relaxing

Than enjoying some quiet time

Down at the beach.

The shower may be cold

But the view is delightful.

Winter snapshots

Winter has many forms of beauty —

Sometimes it’s clear ice and cloudy skies,

Dogs.jpg

Or a burst of pink dawn;

Sunrise.jpg

At other times, it’s golden fog

Mist.jpg

Or a honey glow over cottage and snow.

All photos taken with my mobile phone, so please excuse the quality.

I’m away for work this week, so may not have time

To get around to your blogs.

I’m linking up to: Our World and Skywatch. Please pop over there for a visit!


Deep purple

One morning in late November,

Just as the ice was forming on the lake,

The houses on the far shore were lit up like a necklace of lights.

Dawn.jpg

One in particular was ablaze —

What a glorious view it must be from those windows!

The sun rose slowly

Turning the world into a tapestry of lilacs and pinks,

Stitched together with clouds.

The ghost of Christmas past

All our snow melted and we ended up having a green Christmas.

This is nothing new – I found these shots of my dear, departed Oscar

About to enjoy a Christmas Eve swim under a canopy

Of perfect reflections from a few years ago.

A timely reminder that there is beauty

And  joy and light in the world.

Light burst

If the sky could be a musical instrument —

It would be a trumpet burst of light.

Wishing you all a wonderful holiday season

Full of light and joy and love.

Paws for thought

13 December is Lucia – one of my favourite times of year.

Lucia is all about children dressed in white and carrying candles

To symbolize hope and light in the darkness.

Ablaze.jpg

The dawn that day didn’t disappoint either.

It blazed with light and colour,

So that dogs (and people) seemed small and humble

Under the huge lilac sky;

Dogsinpurple.jpg

And paw prints were etched across a purple

Canopy of snow – leading the eye

To that glorious sky of hope.

The gold in the cold

What a gift from Mother Nature —

Lots more snow!

Ruby and Simmie look

Especially photogenic

With their golden fur against the snow.

Ruby looks good

Dressed in snow sparkles too.

On the way home, I found a mirror and took

A (fairly bad) shot of myself with the dogs.
