Golden veils

In between the snowfalls,

A hiatus of freezing fog:


Golden veils fall over the landscape —

Bringing peace, silence and beauty.

Fire in the sky

The blazing sunset

Sets the world on fire


And paints the sky

In the colours of fire and passion.

(Photos taken on a beach in Conil de la Frontera, Spain.)

Golden joy

It’s almost impossible to photograph a summer sunset

As the sun goes down so very late.


Even at 9.30 or 10 in the evening,

The sun is blazing golden and serene.


The evening light is liquid honey —


And when Simmie shakes after his swim,

He creates golden fireworks of water.

Golden moments

I’m feeling a bit exhausted and overwhelmed (apart from worrying about my daughter during the terror attack, I also got a phone call that Sir Pe had broken his leg in a parachuting accident this weekend) —


So, I’m taking the week to relax and renew,

And to follow the words of Longfellow:

Do not delay,
Do not delay: the golden moments fly!

I will not be visiting blogs this week – but I thank you in advance for your comments.

Spring honey

It was a blustery, spring evening —

But the light was delicious.


Ruby jumped up on her favourite high rock

As the honey’d rays of the sun glowed.


She was happy to look over her kingdom

Bathed in golden light.

(Simmie was busy running around in circles of joy.)

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.

Golden threads

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!)

Oh, the soft golden light of sunset

And a hot haze over the hills of Sussex, England!


And to top it all —

The glowing sun

Turned tails and manes

To molten gold and bronze.

Magical horses

Up on the Downs in Sussex, England,

On a magical sunset evening —


Layers of golden hills

Glow like jewels


While horses graze

And rainbows sparkle.

Oh, that golden light!

Sometimes it’s worth setting the alarm for 4.30 in the morning

In order to capture the magical, golden sunburst

Of sunrise over the Manhattan skyline.
