All our snow melted and we ended up having a green Christmas.
This is nothing new – I found these shots of my dear, departed Oscar
About to enjoy a Christmas Eve swim under a canopy
Of perfect reflections from a few years ago.
A timely reminder that there is beauty
And joy and light in the world.

When the dawn is ablaze in lilac
And the rising sun paints the treetops gold…
The result is just breath-taking!
(I have a crazy busy week ahead of me
So won’t be around much.)

And pop into: Skywatch.
As the temperatures drop,
The colours in the sky intensify.
When the ice reflects back
The perfection of a pink and lilac dawn,
You know you’re lucky enough
To be enjoying a slice of heaven.

Novembers past speak of old jetties reaching out
To embrace the drama and gentleness of grey.

After our huge snowfall last week, I thought it would be fun
To fight my way through snowdrifts to capture
The snow-laden clouds.
The snow was up to my thighs.
My feet got cold as it seeped into my boots.
The bench seemed a good place to
Contemplate the horizon
And enjoy the view.

The world changes so rapidly.
Only last week, it was beautiful autumn
And time for swimming in clouds.
The ripples of our actions
Have far-reaching effects,
So it’s wise to act with kindness.
Even a misty and cloudy sunrise
Brings hope and beauty.

Two autumn sunrises:
One blazing across the sky as dogs frolic in the early morning;
The other breathing serenity
In gorgeous light.

Autumn makes me rich
As it leaves its golden coins on the shore of the lake.
Misty pastel pinks
Blend with lilac clouds and autumn trees.
I stand in awe and drink in the wonder.
For more gorgeousness, please visit: Skywatch.
I slowly make my way down to the lake,
Hoping to see autumn miracles.
The early morning is moody and mysterious,
Yet I glimpse masterpieces of autumn
In the gloomy light.
As it gets brighter, the peaceful grey sky
Makes the colours of leaves and fur pop.
The dogs chase one another,
Oblivious of the copper and gold around them.
When I get back to the boat that you see in the second photo,
The sun shines — leaving me with the beautiful taste
Of lemon glaze on water.
For more amazing colours, please go to: Our World.
I’m living in a beautiful world
Where autumn leaves and skies are reflected
On mirror surfaces of the lake;
Where the sky
Is upside down in beautiful reflections;
Are luminous in the water;
And where dogs
Swim in clouds.
