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

Trees.jpg

And, with the sun shining,

The cold can be just as dazzling.

(Photos taken in February.)

Pink ribbons

Before the leaves left the branches,

The sky put on a dramatic show

Of pink ribbons

Tied up with lilac and gold.

(Only posting once this week – still very busy!)

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.)

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.

The blueberry forests are green once again,

But I spy a furry friend in her autumn coat.

Autumn scenes

It’s early autumn here …

And the fields are full of wildflowers still —

Flowerpower.jpg

And a dog or two.

(A wolf was spotted here a couple of weeks ago too, but it’s long gone.)

There’s nothing more wonderful

Than running free in autumn colours.

All that glitters is not gold

Although we often judge people, countries, cities

On outward appearances, there is far more to us

Than meets the eye.

Gold.jpg

Despite current political rhetoric and media

That would have us believe we are each other’s enemies,

Night.jpg

I truly believe that there is far more that unites us as humans.

We just need to make sure we remember that.

So, here’s to no more hate and a lot more love!

Golden joy

It’s almost impossible to photograph a summer sunset

As the sun goes down so very late.

Goldenwithbird.jpg

Even at 9.30 or 10 in the evening,

The sun is blazing golden and serene.

Joy.jpg

The evening light is liquid honey —

And when Simmie shakes after his swim,

He creates golden fireworks of water.

Glitter

Everything’s better with a bit of nature’s glitter —

Whether it’s ducks at sunset;

Ducks.jpg

The sizzle of the

Golden hour;

Bedazzled.jpg

Or the silken ripples

On the lake as the sun goes down.

Winter snapshots

Winter has many forms of beauty —

Sometimes it’s clear ice and cloudy skies,

Dogs.jpg

Or a burst of pink dawn;

Sunrise.jpg

At other times, it’s golden fog

Mist.jpg

Or a honey glow over cottage and snow.

All photos taken with my mobile phone, so please excuse the quality.

I’m away for work this week, so may not have time

To get around to your blogs.

I’m linking up to: Our World and Skywatch. Please pop over there for a visit!


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.)

In the pink

As the sun was rising in gorgeous pink tones,

The bare trees of November and the frosted ground

Cast beautiful reflections on the lake.

Pinkreflections.jpg

 

There is so much beauty

In the minimalism of a buoy stuck in ice

Buoy.jpg

And a float to keep us anchored

In case we fly away on the dreaminess of the

Stunning pink dawn.
