Fabulous fog

I tried to grab some fog …

And I don’t think I mist!

I love the way fog

Transforms everything:

Trees, dog, and boat.

Ruby’s favourite pastime

Is to jump up on tall rocks

And wait for treats (fog or no fog).

Ablaze

Isn’t it amazing

How the going down of the sun

Can be both so bright and blazing

And yet so dramatic and dark?

Autumnal notes

I love the beginning of autumn —

With its spooky spider web trees;

Dogs enjoying the view

And a swim.

And I love it when the golden fields

Are a backdrop to those birds

That look like musical notes.

A golden oldie

A golden memory from a few years ago:

My daughter and our dear Oscar (no longer with us)

Enjoying a spectacular sunset together.

Reflected emerald

The pendulum has swung, and now the days

Will be shorter than the evenings.

Misty.jpg

This means early morning mists

And emerald green reflections

Reflections.jpg

Slowly turning to rust.

Calm reflections, red houses

And beautiful views

Mean autumn is slowly on its way.

Silk

Some sunsets take

My breath away

When the sun kisses the lake

In ribbons of silk.

Fire in the sky

The sun goes down —

Not quietly

Firedog.jpg

But in a fierce splash of red.

A bird floats across the sky.

Fire can also be peace.

Sun dogs

Ruby is getting her mojo back

And enjoying our lake sunsets again.

Under supervision, she jumps up

On rocks for treats.

And, of course, both dogs

Are used to our photo sessions at sunset.

Purple haze

After the rain —

A sky full of wonder.

After the rain.jpg

Puddles of lilac

And a purple haze in the sky.

The Silver Stallions

Last week, I stayed in a charming village a couple of hours north of Stockholm.

I discovered a sculpture of silver stallions with half moons on their heads.

As the sun set in a purple haze,

Those half moons seemed to scoop up the real moon.

It was a lovely sight!
