Into the beyond

One of my favourite early morning sights

Was the old jetty

Stretching into the beyond.

(I’m away all weekend so won’t be able to visit your blogs.)

Purple ribbons

The sun rises —

Presenting the new day as a gift

Tied up with purple ribbons.

(Dog not included… ;-))

Subtle rose

Sometimes dawn comes creeping with its beauty

Through intricate branches like patterns of lace —

Catching you unawares in open spaces

With its rosy fingers.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

And a float to keep us anchored

In case we fly away on the dreaminess of the

Stunning pink dawn.

Big snow, cold feet

After our huge snowfall last week, I thought it would be fun

To fight my way through snowdrifts to capture

The snow-laden clouds.

Benched.jpg

The snow was up to my thighs.

My feet got cold as it seeped into my boots.

The bench seemed a good place to

Contemplate the horizon

And enjoy the view.
