Come down to the lake with me —
And enjoy the misty views.
Let’s walk around the shore
And then explore the little sauna house on the ice.
Come rest a while,
And let’s enjoy
The cold and beautiful fog
As the sun tinges eternity
In colours of blue and lilac.
(Only posting once this week due to a high work load.)
One chilly morning, the fog lay like
A silken scarf across the cemetery.
The church rose out of the golden mist
Like a ship riding on misty waves.
A caretaker’s van looked
Picturesque against the burnished sky;
And oh, the trees!
They floated in that sky of molten gold!
I’ll only be posting once this week as it gets crazy busy in the run-up to Christmas.

The first cool morning:
Autumn mist is golden
As it caresses trees
And floats over the lone dog walker.
(All photos snapped with my mobile phone.)

Wonderful things happen when the sun
Breaks through in a ball of golden glow.
The sunshine hitting cold ground
Creates an angel of light
As fog rises to meet the dawn.
Cobwebs strung across the fields
Are delicate, golden threads
And feathery fluff from wild flowers
Rests among friends in a field
Of golden bokeh.
(By the way, it started to snow here on November 1st!)

Mist has magical powers:
It can transform ordinary objects
(Here a crane on the jetty in Ericeira, Portugal)
Into classic suspense movie shots.
It turns a sunrise
Into a moment of purple-tinged drama —
And if it lingers all day,
A misty sunset can turn
Landscapes into paintings.

A few weeks ago, I was out on a long walk.
It was eerily misty in the woods.
Suddenly, the sun broke through
Transforming everything into
Golden strips of light —
As if greeting the early morning
With a hallelujah.

The sunrise starts off
In lilac tones,
But soon it turns
Into a blushing dawn
With bursts of orange

The romance of winter –
And the deep snow –
Never fail to surprise and please
When wrapped up in
A sky of pink tissue
And a bow of dreamy fog.

The pink glow of the early setting winter sun
Enticed us outside to explore
The wonders just beyond the horizon.
It was a miracle of trees that
Seemed to float in the rising mist —
A wonder of purple and gold
Painting the fog with magic.
For more miracles, please visit: Skywatch.
With no warning, the temperatures fell
And the fog with it.
Wonderful golden fog,
Each particle of the air alive
And singing with colour and life.
