When the dawn paints the sky
In tones of strawberry and lilac,
There is nothing more relaxing
Than enjoying some quiet time
Down at the beach.
The shower may be cold
But the view is delightful.

13 December is Lucia – one of my favourite times of year.
Lucia is all about children dressed in white and carrying candles
To symbolize hope and light in the darkness.
The dawn that day didn’t disappoint either.
It blazed with light and colour,
So that dogs (and people) seemed small and humble
Under the huge lilac sky;
And paw prints were etched across a purple
Canopy of snow – leading the eye
To that glorious sky of hope.

When the dawn is ablaze in lilac
And the rising sun paints the treetops gold…
The result is just breath-taking!
(I have a crazy busy week ahead of me
So won’t be around much.)

As the temperatures drop,
The colours in the sky intensify.
When the ice reflects back
The perfection of a pink and lilac dawn,
You know you’re lucky enough
To be enjoying a slice of heaven.

Novembers past speak of old jetties reaching out
To embrace the drama and gentleness of grey.

It wouldn’t be summer
Without an excursion down to the lake
And a hot air balloon
Floating away over lilac
For more gorgeous sights, please visit: Skywatch.
Sizzling orange, a glowing setting sun —
That’s when the sky romances the earth
With its beauty.

Mist has magical powers:
It can transform ordinary objects
(Here a crane on the jetty in Ericeira, Portugal)
Into classic suspense movie shots.
It turns a sunrise
Into a moment of purple-tinged drama —
And if it lingers all day,
A misty sunset can turn
Landscapes into paintings.

The summer solstice is
A time of beauty.
The longest day slowly
Comes to an end
With a molten bowl
Of golden light.

When I woke up this morning, it was very misty
With the sun struggling through foggy veils.
That reminded me of all the moments of joy
When we lived down by the lake
And I could step outside in my dressing gown
To enjoy the sky kissing the water.
