Blue-tiful autumn

I like the autumn skies:

With a dog or two

And without!

Those fly-away skies

As the sun rises,

The glorious trees glow in the light.

Distance 1.jpg

Geese call to each other;

Their reflections dot the water.

Distance 2.jpg

Peaceful skies return when they disappear.

It’s hard for the sky to compete with autumn

At this time of year.

Reflected emerald

The pendulum has swung, and now the days

Will be shorter than the evenings.

Misty.jpg

This means early morning mists

And emerald green reflections

Slowly turning to rust.

Calm reflections, red houses

And beautiful views

Mean autumn is slowly on its way.

Orange love

One day, a golden light burst onto the scene.

Ruby kindly posed (along with a strange shadow creature).

The sky drew lines and swirls

Against an orange background

As the dashing duo posed in the hope of a treat.

Please note: I’m only posting once this week due to work (am away filming) and taking care of Ruby. She had a uterus infection and had to have an emergency operation to remove her uterus and ovaries. The operation was a success, but she needs looking after.

Fare thee well, winter?

Winter seems to be waning —

I say ‘seems’ as this is Sweden and it can snow even in June!

But I don’t think we will see scenes like this one again this winter:

With thick snow on the iced over lake.

It’s cold in the mornings,

So, if we are lucky,

We can still enjoy rim-frosted green lanterns

And diamond-studded

Golden fur.

Frosted views

The snow is melting and the light is changing —

But who says that winter is without its own bright light?

Frostedsky.jpg

When it is cold with hoar frost

Lying thick on the branches

And, with the sun shining,

The cold can be just as dazzling.

(Photos taken in February.)

Feeling blue

The snow is gradually melting away —

But only last week, it lay thick in the fields

Below a blue canopy of silk.

Veils of fog

Fog – a majestic backdrop

For a red dog (or two);

Doginmist.jpg

Fog – veiling landscape

And sky;

Veilsoffog.jpg

Fog – settling on the ground

Like a silken scarf.

Fog.

Hanging on to autumn

Our winter snow has washed away in the rain,

So I’m still hanging on to autumn.

(Pictures taken a couple of weeks ago.)

Brightreflections.jpg

I can’t get enough of the bright reflections,

Bright.jpg

The emerald of the evergreens

Blending with the fiery colours of the birch trees.

Morereflections.jpg

The blueberry forests are green once again,

But I spy a furry friend in her autumn coat.

Drama in the skies

We had a lovely snowfall, which has now all melted away unfortunately,

But I made it down to the lake to enjoy the view before the snow disappeared.

This is our sunset at 14.45!

Clouds created

Lilac veils of drama

Drama.jpg

And the trees seemed to tickle

The purple bellies of the clouds.
