Drama in the skies

We had a lovely snowfall, which has now all melted away unfortunately,

But I made it down to the lake to enjoy the view before the snow disappeared.

This is our sunset at 14.45!

Clouds created

Lilac veils of drama

And the trees seemed to tickle

The purple bellies of the clouds.

Postcards from England

I had a great visit with my mum in England.

The day of my arrival saw the tail end of Hurricane Ophelia,

Which created a lovely background for sheep silhouettes.

The next day was warm and misty.

On our walk, we saw a strange, n-ewe species:

The two-headed sheep!

(Sorry about the baa-d pun.)

Our destination was this old, Saxon church

Dating back to the late 11th century.

My father is buried in this beautiful (and slightly isolated) location.

I’m busy this week with work so will only be posting once.

Golden moments

I’m away all week – off to England

To visit my mum.

Oldhouse.jpg

Time to enjoy family, old houses

And my mum’s garden —

And, of course, my favourite walk

Up on the Sussex Downs.

(I wont’ be around to visit you this week.)

September swan song

Whether in the early morning,

With fog and stripes of light;

Swan stripes.jpg

Or dressed in purple gauze

At first light;

Swanlake.jpg

And even winging away at sunset

On the tips of feathers —

September’s swan song is beautiful.

The little sauna house

At the beginning of the summer,

Building started down by the lake.

It was a lovely place to sit and contemplate the sunset.

(That’s Ruby posing.)

A few days ago, I went back to the lake

And could see that the construction was now finished.

Turns out that the local caravan park

Has built a sauna for its guests

On the shore of the lake.

(Still plenty of room for Simmie to swim!)

Strawberry sizzle

Sometimes, the best part of a sunset

Is when the sun sinks below the horizon.

Strawberry peace.jpg

Then all sorts of magic can happen:

A strawberry sizzle in the sky

Blush.jpg

Or the rich perfection

Of sky kissing waves at the beach.

(I’m on my last week of holiday and want to spend as much time away from the computer as possible, so may not be around too much.)

Hallelujah chorus

A choir of glorious rays

Breaks over the English countryside.

It’s sunset

And you can almost hear the angels sing.

Dandelion nose

Take a lovely, golden evening,

A dog and some water.

Goldendog.jpg

Walk home through a field

Full of dandelions.

Dandelion.jpg

Admire the doggie nose

Covered in dandelion fluff.

Golden joy

It’s almost impossible to photograph a summer sunset

As the sun goes down so very late.

Goldenwithbird.jpg

Even at 9.30 or 10 in the evening,

The sun is blazing golden and serene.

Joy.jpg

The evening light is liquid honey —

Simmieswim.jpg

And when Simmie shakes after his swim,

He creates golden fireworks of water.

A surprise visitor

This weekend, I went down to the lake

To enjoy yet another golden sunset with the dogs.

This time – we were joined by a surprise visitor: a beaver.

Beaverclose-up.jpg

The beavers have been very active further around the lake,

But now they have felled trees near the beach too.

Treesdown.jpg

Which might explain why the beaver was so eager to visit.

The beaver swam up towards Ruby – before realizing she was a dog….

 

Rubywatching.jpg

With a huge splash of its tail, it disappeared under the water.

Simmie decided he had to guard Ruby – and the floating pontoon!

Onguard.jpg

The sun was still blazing in the sky at about 9.30 pm

As we watched the beaver swim away in a lake of molten gold.
