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.)

A lone tree
Guards the lake —
And its perfect reflection
Of upside down clouds.

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?)

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.

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.
