The no sky sky

It’s been a mild winter

With skies of silver and grey.

No sky

The outlook from where I’m standing though

Is all good.

Pearls of gold

It was the magical ending to a day on the frozen lake:

Pearls of gold

And the deep silence that only snow can bring.

Golden views

All bundled up for a wintry walk.

The sighing of the setting sun

Paints the trees with gold.

A lone skater – on thin ice – whizzes by,

Lone skater

His singing skates echoed

By the honking farewells of the last swans of winter.

Frosted

The last day of November was gloriously cold:

A frosted universe presented itself —

Frosty flowers that looked like stars floating in the cosmos;

Small ice crystals in the shape of

Trees on the postbox lock;

Frosted lock

A storm passed through

And left frozen waves in its wake;

frosted waves

A bird hiding out in the icy reeds

Sang a morning song;

bird

And yes, even a rubbish bin

Transformed into something greater than itself

In the frosted sun.

Those big April skies

April seems stuck in the beauty of winter.

A couple of weeks ago, we enjoyed

A pink panorama of big skies and fluffy clouds.

PInk and moody

And only a couple of days ago,

The snow cover on the lake was gone

And the cold mist seemed to make

The clouds as silver and soft as silk.

Gently, almost secretly, spring is approaching!

Snow face

No matter who you are

Or what you look like,

A bad hair day can be much improved

By adding some extra sparkle and snow!

I’m off to Paris with my daughter for a few days, so please excuse me if I don’t visit you.

Snowscape

When the morning light hits the trees

In just the right way;

Snowscape 2

When the blue bowl of the sky

Hangs like a silken canopy over the frozen lake;

Snowscape

And when the sun sets

In soft pastel purples…

Then … yes then!

Winter is a glorious place to be.

Snow blossoms

There is something so delightful

About the bright light of spring

And the cold of a lingering winter.

If you look carefully, you can find snow moons

Dancing on the snow.

And instead of flowers,

We have snow blossoms

And dazzling light.

And – just as in real life —

You might be lucky to find

A diamond in the rough.

Expectancy

You never know what might be waiting for you

Over the brow of that hill you’re struggling to climb;

(Can you see Oscar waiting for me?)

Oscar waiting

Or what small delights await

Around the corner.

Wait for me

Please forgive me if I don’t get around to visiting you this weekend.

We’re having problems with the Internet, which makes it incredibly slow and painful to visit blogs at the moment.

In the meantime, pay a visit to: Camera Critters.


Perfect balance

We celebrated the spring equinox

With three days of snow.

But that doesn’t matter —

The equinox is the time when the world is

In perfect balance:

Church

That moment when the light of day

And the dark of night are equal

All around the world.

Bare lace

And now, here in the northern hemisphere,

We go towards lighter times…

Even if we are enjoying the coldest ever winter this spring!
