As the sun rises,
The glorious trees glow in the light.
Geese call to each other;
Their reflections dot the water.
Peaceful skies return when they disappear.
It’s hard for the sky to compete with autumn
At this time of year.
For more glory, please go to: Skywatch.
The geese call out; they are leaving.
They look like musical notes stretched across the early evening sky.
Turn into a dazzling orange sonata.
For more musical skies, please go to: Skywatch.
The view from our jetty
Is sometimes alive with colour and mist and geese.
Sometimes, it offers minimalism
And quiet contemplation.
One of my favourite moments
Is when the mist leaches the world of colour
And flings me right into the middle
Of a Chinese silk painting.

My daughter and I were enjoying a beautiful sunset together a few days ago —
And she was practising using my ‘big’ camera
When we suddenly saw a floating line of geese.
They seemed to be chasing an airplane.
The geese flew away over the trees
And the plane flew right on up to infinity.

Sometimes, early morning
Is a magical place —
Where it feels as if
Dreams can come true
Right there on the edge
Of the first apricot blush of dawn.

We’ve had some deliciously foggy October mornings
That part to reveal unexpected pleasures.
The geese honk their farewells loudly
As they sail above me in the mist.
My spirits rise up
And I let my worries float away on the winged sky.

They rose in formation
And took off like sleek feathered jet planes.
Round and round they flew –
Not sure if they were coming or going.
(Don’t we all have days like that?)
After a while, they landed
Feeling a little wobbly on their feet.
But ready to try again another day.
For more dizzy creatures, please visit: Camera Critters.
They gathered in a gaggle
Laughing and honking and flapping.
Time for their early morning beauty routine.
Preening in the mirrored lake
They seem to say that they know beauty is only feather deep,
But let them enjoy their time in the sun.
Oh – and next time you find yourself on a wild goose chase,
Just remember – that’s what wild geese are for!
