Romancing the city

Early morning dawn:

I take out my mobile phone as I sit in a car and capture

The romance of the sky over Stockholm.

(I like the way the car window frames the cityscape.)


On the way home from work,

Lilac and pink clouds

Bid the sun farewell at sunset.

Once in a blue moon

I wasn’t expecting to see the blue moon

At about half-past three in the afternoon.


But there it was – gracing the winter sunset;


Rising like a balloon

And being released into the sky by the trees.


For more stellar shots, please go to: Skywatch.

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.

For more postcards, please go to: Our World.

And check out: Skywatch.



Golden moments

I’m away all week – off to England

To visit my mum.


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;


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!)


For more delights, please visit: Our World.

And Skywatch.

Work is busy so I’ll only be posting once this week.

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


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.)

For more surprises, please visit: Our World and Skywatch.

Hallelujah chorus

A choir of glorious rays

Breaks over the English countryside.

It’s sunset

And you can almost hear the angels sing.


For more bursts of joy, go to: Skywatch.

Dandelion nose

Take a lovely, golden evening,

A dog and some water.


Walk home through a field

Full of dandelions.


Admire the doggie nose

Covered in dandelion fluff.
