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.)

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

One day, it’s glorious autumn
And bursts of colour,
The next, it’s heavy snowfall
And the magic of winter —
With autumn leaves still hanging on.
Although all this snow has now melted,
(Yes, all melted away!)
We had one wonderful week
Full of the magic of snow.
(I’m hoping it will come back before Christmas.)

After our huge snowfall last week, I thought it would be fun
To fight my way through snowdrifts to capture
The snow-laden clouds.
The snow was up to my thighs.
My feet got cold as it seeped into my boots.
The bench seemed a good place to
Contemplate the horizon
And enjoy the view.

We had the biggest snowfall every recorded
In November over the past 111 years.
Mist rose from the ground
As the storm raged on.
Autumn leaves continued to fall
After it stopped snowing – creating
A curious mix of winter and autumn (wintumn).
It was a struggle to get down to the beach
To enjoy snowy views.
Trees turned into Japanese paintings
With graceful curved branches
Wearing the gift of snow like a crown.

The world changes so rapidly.
Only last week, it was beautiful autumn
And time for swimming in clouds.
The ripples of our actions
Have far-reaching effects,
So it’s wise to act with kindness.
Even a misty and cloudy sunrise
Brings hope and beauty.

Two autumn sunrises:
One blazing across the sky as dogs frolic in the early morning;
The other breathing serenity
In gorgeous light.

When the sun rises
And autumn leaves catch fire,
You can see copper flames
Reflected in the lake,
And lemon lanterns
Lighting the way to winter.

Autumn makes me rich
As it leaves its golden coins on the shore of the lake.
Misty pastel pinks
Blend with lilac clouds and autumn trees.
I stand in awe and drink in the wonder.

Living near a new part of the lake
Gives wide views from stony cliffs.
Ruby glows among the autumn leaves
As she jumps up on a big rock that is more than 2 metres high.
Simmie prefers to camouflage himself
Among the yellow lanterns of leaves.
A leaf shines
Like a ruby;
And the brilliance of a fallen leaf
Reflects onto rock like molten gold.
