Ablaze

Isn’t it amazing

How the going down of the sun

Ablaze.jpg

Can be both so bright and blazing

And yet so dramatic and dark?

Reflected emerald

The pendulum has swung, and now the days

Will be shorter than the evenings.

Misty.jpg

This means early morning mists

And emerald green reflections

Reflections.jpg

Slowly turning to rust.

Calm reflections, red houses

And beautiful views

Mean autumn is slowly on its way.

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.jpg

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;

Onfire1.jpg

The burnished copper of the lake

Is still.

Onfire2.jpg

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 —

Lonetree.jpg

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?)
