Pink frosting

So far winter has mainly been gray and mild,

So we have to make the most of those glorious

Pink frosted dawns with ice on the lake

And furry friends on the jetty.

Wishing you all the much love and joy in this festive season!

Sauna house portraits

If autumn could be summed up in a picture, it would be this one:

Golden leaves, the sauna house and Ruby posing by the water.

Simmie would rather explore

And swim than pose.

A week later, even more leaves have fallen off the trees,

Like whispers, and I see another portrait of the sauna house

Peeking out from behind the leaves.

Autumn surprises

Autumn is a golden

Curtain of leaves;

Goldenshower.jpg

It’s the russet fur

Of autumn-coloured dogs;

And the surprise of deer

Blending in with the trees.

Autumn scenes

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.

Autumn critters

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.

How to photobomb successfully

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.

Sunset silhouettes

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?

Golden nights

The long light evenings in Scandinavia

Are called white nights because it never really gets dark.

Summersundogs.jpg

But for me, they will always be

Dazzling, honey’d golden nights,

Where the setting sun

Matches the red fur of my dogs.

A surprise visitor

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.

Beaverclose-up.jpg

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.

Dog with a view

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.
