Light burst

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.)

Upside down clouds

A lone tree

Guards the lake —


And its perfect reflection

Of upside down clouds.

Still grey

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

Floating sweets.

(The grey almost adds a 3D feeling to the scenes, don’t you think?)

Sun-kissed skies aren’t just about

Warm beaches and a hot blazing sun.


They are also about

The way the November sun paints

The tree tops with gold and pink.

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,


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.

From heron to eternity

What is more delicious than the bright flames of autumn


And the zen of a heron gliding over the water


Before flying off into eternity?

Double moon sky

It’s a frosty dawn,

And the moon reflects in the still waters of the lake


Like a penny dipped in silver.

The golden trees are a tapestry of light.


Later on, we get to the little beach by the sauna house:

The moon is gone,

But not the beauty of a calm, early morning with frost.

Autumn, reflected

The bare bones of autumn

With rich splashes of colour are delightful.


The fiery lanterns of leaves

Hang upside down in still waters.


And all that gold from the autumn sun

Is reflected back on furry coat and field.

Sometimes the rising sun (arriving later and later every day)

Sets the trees aflame;


As for the clouds,

They give double joy:

Once in the sky and once in water reflected.
