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.

Patience

“Don’t mind us!

We’ll just wait here

Waiting.jpg

While you take hundreds of photos

Of the gorgeous sunset!”

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.)

Burnished gold

Another golden sunset:

Trees marching across the horizon;

The burnished copper of the lake

Is still.

I gaze at the scene

In wonder.

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;

Boat.jpg

And in the perfect upside world of reflections.

Bare birches paint abstract pictures in the water;

Buoys.jpg

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

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.)

Brightreflections.jpg

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.
