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.

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;

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.

Of lilac and gold

When the dawn is ablaze in lilac

And the rising sun paints the treetops gold…

The result is just breath-taking!

(I have a crazy busy week ahead of me

So won’t be around much.)

Pink heaven

As the temperatures drop,

The colours in the sky intensify.

Pink view.jpg

When the ice reflects back

The perfection of a pink and lilac dawn,

Oh buoy.jpg

You know you’re lucky enough

To be enjoying a slice of heaven.

In the pink

As the sun was rising in gorgeous pink tones,

The bare trees of November and the frosted ground

Cast beautiful reflections on the lake.

There is so much beauty

In the minimalism of a buoy stuck in ice

Buoy.jpg

And a float to keep us anchored

In case we fly away on the dreaminess of the

Stunning pink dawn.

Pumpkin skies

Two autumn sunrises:

One blazing across the sky as dogs frolic in the early morning;

Sunrise.jpg

The other breathing serenity

In gorgeous light.

Be still, my heart!

When the sun rises

And autumn leaves catch fire,

Catching fire.jpg

You can see copper flames

Reflected in the lake,

Autumn.jpg

And lemon lanterns

Lighting the way to winter.
