Ablaze

Isn’t it amazing

How the going down of the sun

Ablaze.jpg

Can be both so bright and blazing

And yet so dramatic and dark?

Silk

Some sunsets take

My breath away

When the sun kisses the lake

In ribbons of silk.

Sun dogs

Ruby is getting her mojo back

And enjoying our lake sunsets again.

Under supervision, she jumps up

On rocks for treats.

And, of course, both dogs

Are used to our photo sessions at sunset.

Summer idyll

Let me tell you the story of summer —

Of long, hot evenings and herons skimming the sky.

Sunsetting.jpg

It’s a story of dogs and a lake

Dogs.jpg

And the sighting of beavers swimming in the pink-tinged water.

It’s the story of sharing a beautiful sunset

Beaver.jpg

With a stranger, who had driven all the way to my small part of the world,

From Russia with his family.

And now it’s a story I share with you.

Purple haze

After the rain —

A sky full of wonder.

Puddles of lilac

Making a splash

Late summer evening —

The sky is sizzling as the sun goes down.

Ready.jpg

It’s hot.

Jump.jpg

If you’re a dog, then you run,

Jump and enjoy!

Skimming eternity

The yin and yang

Of swans

Skimming.jpg

Skimming the lilac-coloured

Water of the sunset

And floating off into eternity.

Patience

“Don’t mind us!

We’ll just wait here

Waiting.jpg

While you take hundreds of photos

Of the gorgeous sunset!”

Strawberry crush

A hot sunset

Sizzles over the lake.

A mother duck and her babies swim by.

Ducks.jpg

Peace descends on the water

In the form of strawberry crush.

Sizzling sunset

Vivid red sky

And a sizzling reflection;

Sunset1.jpg

The setting sun balances

On clouds.

Later on, a bird flies by.

Peace.

(All photos straight out of the camera.)

I’m going to London at the end of the week and then filming in Gothenburg as soon as I get back, so I won’t be posting for about ten days.
