Spring honey

It was a blustery, spring evening —

But the light was delicious.

Silhouette.jpg

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.)

The blue beyond

The spring equinox is when day and night are equally long:

A perfect balance that was reflected in the azure blue

Of open water and the white cold of the ice still left on the lake.

The blue.jpg

Even the clouds seemed to find harmony

In their own reflections.

As for that bluer than a jay’s wing sky —

All I could do was to stand and gaze in wonder.

Into the beyond

One of my favourite early morning sights

Was the old jetty

Stretching into the beyond.

(I’m away all weekend so won’t be able to visit your blogs.)

The ghost of Christmas past

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.

Of lilac and gold

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.)

Pink heaven

As the temperatures drop,

The colours in the sky intensify.

Pink view.jpg

When the ice reflects back

The perfection of a pink and lilac dawn,

Oh buoy.jpg

You know you’re lucky enough

To be enjoying a slice of heaven.

The drama of the grey

Novembers past speak of old jetties reaching out

To embrace the drama and gentleness of grey.

Big snow, cold feet

After our huge snowfall last week, I thought it would be fun

To fight my way through snowdrifts to capture

The snow-laden clouds.

Benched.jpg

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.

Cloud swirls

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.

Pumpkin skies

Two autumn sunrises:

One blazing across the sky as dogs frolic in the early morning;

Sunrise.jpg

The other breathing serenity

In gorgeous light.
