Sunset love

A stunning purple sunset —

And puppy kisses:

What could be better?

Wonder

After three months of drought, forest fires and extreme heat,

The weather has finally turned cool and rainy.

It sure looks good!

Skimming eternity

The yin and yang

Of swans

Skimming the lilac-coloured

Water of the sunset

And floating off into eternity.

Swim time!

One of the dogs’ favourite places for a swim

Is the jetty next to the floating sauna on our local lake.

I like it too —

Because of all the photo opportunities it gives!

Jetty.jpg

It’s a peaceful place in the early mornings,

Where you can meditate on clouds and their reflections.

(Photos taken in early May.)

Strawberry crush

A hot sunset

Sizzles over the lake.

A mother duck and her babies swim by.

Peace descends on the water

In the form of strawberry crush.

Home is where the heart is

I had a wonderful time away —

But there is something special about coming home to familiar sights.

Home is where the heart (or sunset) is.

Peaceful in pink

I’m going away to Montenegro and Croatia with the kids for a week —

To see new horizons and sights.

In the meantime, I leave you with

A pretty, pink sunset down at the lake.

(I won’t be around to comment on your blogs for about ten days.

But don’t worry, Our World will be up and running as normal!)

Sizzling sunset

Vivid red sky

And a sizzling reflection;

Sunset1.jpg

The setting sun balances

On clouds.

Later on, a bird flies by.

Peace.

(All photos straight out of the camera.)

I’m going to London at the end of the week and then filming in Gothenburg as soon as I get back, so I won’t be posting for about ten days.

Balloon sunset

My Saturday nights are fairly exciting 🙂 :

Balloons arriving.jpg

They consist of watching

The sun setting over the lake:

Preferable with a burnt orange sky

Balloonsky.jpg

And balloons gently floating away on the horizon.

Blue-tiful

During my trip to Sussex, I climbed up Beachy Head.

The walk is a steep one – but I was joined

By wildflowers and stunted trees waving their hair in the wind.

Windswept.jpg

The blue of the sea faded

Into the blue of the sky.

Blues.jpg

I heard the skylarks – and also a more unusual sound –

Bagpipes being played by a lone piper (intent on not annoying his neighbours?)

He played well – and the music made the scenery even more majestic.
