Isn’t it amazing
How the going down of the sun
Can be both so bright and blazing
And yet so dramatic and dark?

The pendulum has swung, and now the days
Will be shorter than the evenings.
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.

After three months of drought, forest fires and extreme heat,
The weather has finally turned cool and rainy.
It sure looks good!

The yin and yang
Skimming the lilac-coloured
Water of the sunset
And floating off into eternity.

“Don’t mind us!
We’ll just wait here
While you take hundreds of photos
Of the gorgeous sunset!”

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!
It’s a peaceful place in the early mornings,
Where you can meditate on clouds and their reflections.
(Photos taken in early May.)

Another golden sunset:
Trees marching across the horizon;
The burnished copper of the lake
I gaze at the scene
For more fiery skies, please go to: Skywatch.
On the way into the office;
A glorious burst of light illuminates the sky.
(Thank goodness for mobile phone cameras!
And apologies in advance if I don’t get round to visiting you – life is still very hectic.)
For more light, please go to: Skywatch.
A lone tree
Guards the lake —
And its perfect reflection
Of upside down clouds.
For more cloudy views, please visit: Skywatch.
I get a lot of comments about how colourful my world is. That’s because I focus on the bright and the colours.
But as you can imagine, we do get a lot of grey days.
Even then, there is beauty in the stillness of the grey;
And in the perfect upside world of reflections.
Bare birches paint abstract pictures in the water;
And the pop of colourful buoys make them look like
(The grey almost adds a 3D feeling to the scenes, don’t you think?)
