It’s early autumn here …
And the fields are full of wildflowers still —
And a dog or two.
(A wolf was spotted here a couple of weeks ago too, but it’s long gone.)
There’s nothing more wonderful
Than running free in autumn colours.

I love the soft, misty feel of autumn —
Especially when a deer family decides to rest in the fields as I take my photo!
The temperatures are still quite mild
And Simmie loves nothing more than swimming in the lake.
This is his face when I ask him to come out. (That’s right – he doesn’t want to!)
As for Ruby,
She is content just catching leaves.
For more autumn shots, please go to: Our World.
Get your camera and two dogs
And walk down to the lake.
Admire the sunset with boats.
Turn away for a few seconds,
Allowing your furry friends to get into the photo.
Then click to get a sweet photobomb.

When you have dogs, there is always the chance
That they will photobomb your shots.
But I think they just add
To the spectacular sunset, don’t you?

The long light evenings in Scandinavia
Are called white nights because it never really gets dark.
But for me, they will always be
Dazzling, honey’d golden nights,
Where the setting sun
Matches the red fur of my dogs.

This weekend, I went down to the lake
To enjoy yet another golden sunset with the dogs.
This time – we were joined by a surprise visitor: a beaver.
The beavers have been very active further around the lake,
But now they have felled trees near the beach too.
Which might explain why the beaver was so eager to visit.
The beaver swam up towards Ruby – before realizing she was a dog….
With a huge splash of its tail, it disappeared under the water.
Simmie decided he had to guard Ruby – and the floating pontoon!
The sun was still blazing in the sky at about 9.30 pm
As we watched the beaver swim away in a lake of molten gold.

Going down to the lake with the dogs
Is my evening pleasure:
Nature provides the best entertainment
As clouds and setting sun
Turn the waters of the lake pink.

What a gift from Mother Nature —
Lots more snow!
Ruby and Simmie look
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.

It was a gorgeous evening
When I went out for a walk with the dogs.
The summer light
Drizzled over grass and dogs alike
Lighting up the fields
With its honeyed glow
So that there was gold
Both in the sky
And in the grass.

It was a cold and windy day in late April
And the beavers were busy down by the lake.
The chill in the air did nothing
To dampen the enthusiasm of Ruby and Simmie —
Look at those ears fly!
Being down at the lake
Means only one thing: swimming fun!
(That’s Ruby jumping in so elegantly.)
Later on, Simmie showed me the true meaning
Of prancing as I enjoyed the view across the water
And dreamed of warmer days.
