Trumpeting light

Is that an angel —

Or an elephant —

Trumpeting across the horizon at sunset?

(In other news, WordPress informs me

That I’ve been blogging for nine years!

Thank you for sticking with me all these years.)

Fire in the sky

The blazing sunset

Sets the world on fire

Umbrella.jpg

And paints the sky

In the colours of fire and passion.

(Photos taken on a beach in Conil de la Frontera, Spain.)

Glitter

Everything’s better with a bit of nature’s glitter —

Whether it’s ducks at sunset;

Ducks.jpg

The sizzle of the

Golden hour;

Bedazzled.jpg

Or the silken ripples

On the lake as the sun goes down.

Spring honey

It was a blustery, spring evening —

But the light was delicious.

Silhouette.jpg

Ruby jumped up on her favourite high rock

As the honey’d rays of the sun glowed.

She was happy to look over her kingdom

Bathed in golden light.

(Simmie was busy running around in circles of joy.)

Daydreaming

As the spring snow falls prettily outside the window,

My thoughts fly away like a bird:

I’m summer dreaming.

Winter ribbons

Winter doesn’t always dazzle;

Sometimes it is simply enough

To offer ribbons of light and soft colour.

Purple ribbons

The sun rises —

Presenting the new day as a gift

Tied up with purple ribbons.

(Dog not included… ;-))

Subtle rose

Sometimes dawn comes creeping with its beauty

Through intricate branches like patterns of lace —

Branches.jpg

Catching you unawares in open spaces

With its rosy fingers.

Winter snapshots

Winter has many forms of beauty —

Sometimes it’s clear ice and cloudy skies,

Dogs.jpg

Or a burst of pink dawn;

Sunrise.jpg

At other times, it’s golden fog

Mist.jpg

Or a honey glow over cottage and snow.

I’m away for work this week, so may not have time

To get around to your blogs.

I’m linking up to: Our World and Skywatch. Please pop over there for a visit!


The ghost of Christmas past

All our snow melted and we ended up having a green Christmas.

This is nothing new – I found these shots of my dear, departed Oscar

About to enjoy a Christmas Eve swim under a canopy

Of perfect reflections from a few years ago.

A timely reminder that there is beauty

And  joy and light in the world.
