Autumn, leaving

Autumn is all about change and leaving

In flamboyant style.


This is Ruby, as red as the leaves on the trees.

She has left us temporarily.


Why? Because she is expecting

Puppies any day now.

Can you see her round tummy?

Ruby pregnant

I’ll miss her sorely

But my young goofball Simmie

Teaches me that there is a lot to be happy about.


I go with the flow

And try to remain young at heart.

Rainbow is my favourite colour

Rainbows are delightful —

Especially when they are decorated with cloud moustaches.

Rainbow with moustaches

Seen for a few fleeting moments,

They remind us that life is short – and beautiful.

Glowing sunset

The golden light of October

Is as sweet as honey.

The invitation

Wide skies of

Red and purple

Wide skies

Invite us to drink

In the wonder and beauty of nature —

Sunset lake

And, of course, if you’re a dog,

To take a dip in

Rose-tinted water.

Chasing planes

My daughter and I were enjoying a beautiful sunset together a few days ago —

And she was practising using my ‘big’ camera

When we suddenly saw a floating line of geese.


They seemed to be chasing an airplane.


The geese flew away over the trees

And the plane flew right on up to infinity.

Sunset boulevard

Better than TV:

A stunning sunset show

Performed by Nature.

Surf’s up!

Just back from a fabulous week

In Baleal Surf Camp, Portugal

Where the water was cold,


The kids stood up on their surfboards

The very first day,


The skies over the sand dunes

Were so wide and embracing

Dunes and sky

And the scenery wild

When the rain came rushing in.

Hot red chili pepper skies

Chili peppers are measured in Scoville units,

With the spiciest pepper in the world scoring over two million Scovilles.

I think these red hot clouds would also score highly, don’t you?

Hot red chilli

And what better way to enjoy a vibrant sunset

Than with a good furry friend!

Sometimes a sunset

Is so breathtaking

That all you can do

Is stand there humbled


And drink in all the wonder.

Floating in clouds

 Henry David Thoreau once wrote, “You must not blame me if I do talk to the clouds.”

Sea of clouds copy

Many years ago, I woke up to an amazing sight:

Fields and fields

Of foamy clouds in the sky!

Endless clouds copy

I had to stop and talk to those clouds

For a very long time.

(All photos from my archive of 2010.)
