The first frost

Last week saw us with minus temperatures

And a hard frost on the ground.

Yellow tree

It was the kind of morning that is a gift —

With crisp air and a light that made the yellow leaves

Glow like chandeliers.


Simson found new energy

In the cold.


Ruby and I sat on a frosty bench

And listened to the falling leaves —

They sounded like rain.

Ruby listening

I do love autumn, don’t you?

Glowing sunset

The golden light of October

Is as sweet as honey.

LIfe is hectic around here again

And I’m away with work, so won’t be able to comment on your blogs.

Windows of light

The beach at Baleal, Portugal, is covered in dunes

That are environmentally protected.

One evening, I went out at sunset

To see the dunes rising against the sky

Like the humps of camels

Windows of light

While the sun burst forth

In wonderful windows of light.

Stained glass petals

Spring is all about

The glowing sun of flowers,


Where crocus petals

Drink in the rays

Crocus in light

To reveal silhouettes

Of their secrets.


I love the way the petals and shadows

Create mosaics like stained glass windows, don’t you?

Greeting the light

One of the things I love most about photography

Is trying to capture the light.


It’s much easier to do

When you visit a magnificent cathedral

Like Notre Dame in Paris.


You don’t have to be religious

To have your breath taken away by the interior

And the simple yet beautiful ceiling.

I love the way the stained glass windows

Create rainbows of light on an old wall in the cathedral.

The play of shadow makes the sculptures

Look like real people.


Back outside again, I’m surprised by a shadow

Of what appears to be an alien.

I have to look twice to see

That it’s the shadow of an eagle!

The great big

Hallelujah of the sun

Sunburst 1

Bursting out into song

Over rooftops and trees

Gives me energy.

Sunburst 2

Even the melody of the setting sun

In the city a couple of weeks ago

Sang a beautiful tune.

Travel light

I hope you travel through the coming year

With light and love in your hearts.

Bringers of light

It’s that time of year again: the festival of Lucia

Celebrated on December 13 with music and light.

The Lucia glides in wearing a crown of candles;


The rest of the singers follow, dressed in white.

Golden light illuminates beautiful faces full of song.

A reminder that candles need darkness

In which to shine.

Lucia singers

The wintry early light

Turns old church window into art —


I leave the concert

With hope in my heart.

Sunrise serenade

The sun breaks through

The early morning fog


With a glorious

Golden hallelujah of light.

(Note to self: Let nothing dim the light that shines within.)

Rainbow wishes

The golden evening light of late summer

Transforms even the humblest of flowers

Into works of art:


From downy pillows of fluff

To small wishes ready for take off.

And if you’re lucky,

You might even see a dandelion rainbow.
