Romance at the beach

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.

Paws for thought

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.

Of lilac and gold

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.)

Pink heaven

As the temperatures drop,

The colours in the sky intensify.

When the ice reflects back

The perfection of a pink and lilac dawn,

Oh buoy.jpg

You know you’re lucky enough

To be enjoying a slice of heaven.

The drama of the grey

Novembers past speak of old jetties reaching out

To embrace the drama and gentleness of grey.

Into the lilac forever

It wouldn’t be summer

Without an excursion down to the lake

And a hot air balloon

Floating away over lilac

And purple.

Romancing the earth

Sizzling orange, a glowing setting sun —

That’s when the sky romances the earth

With its beauty.

Transformative

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 —

Mist.jpg

And if it lingers all day,

A misty sunset can turn

Landscapes into paintings.

Golden bowl sky

The summer solstice is

A time of beauty.

Solstice sun.jpg

The longest day slowly

Comes to an end

With a molten bowl

Of golden light.

Mist, reflecting

When I woke up this morning, it was very misty

With the sun struggling through foggy veils.

Long line.jpg

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.
