My gypsy feet were getting restless and wanted to go exploring, after all it is now 4 months since my last trip. So yesterday it was time for a day’s outing into the country side. Discovering a new and delightful place for lunch. (more on this in another post) On to Murwillumbah art gallery to be immersed in art. Then sit on the deck of the gallery café with a cup of coffee as the sun went down.
It is dusk and, thinking the sunset was finished, it is time to head home along the highway. The sugar cane fields on one side and the Tweed River on the other. Suddenly the sun illuminates the sky with a final burst of iridescent red, it is breathtaking and I had to stop and try to capture this pure moment of nature’s glory. I am oblivious of the vehicles rushing by, people encased in their metallic shells. Are they even aware of the beauty around them. The place is a perfect spot for photographs as the cirrus clouds reflect in a pool of blood in the river.
Ten minutes and the show is over…
For this week’s challenge, share a photo of something pure — it can be a person, an object, or a moment.
Today was a perfect day for gardening and I happily lost all track of time as I pottered and planted and mulched and watered. Then as the day came to a close look what I was rewarded with. I just had to share this with you.
I hope all my blogging friends have had a good day and you have an interesting weekend planned.
To see beauty like this in nature makes me want to just sit and breathe and absorb it fully in the short time it presents these gorgeous colours for our enjoyment. So I am linking this to Ailsa’s theme of the week “breathe”
Autumn has arrived, the temperatures have dropped to the mid 20’s. Yesterday it was a drizzly day, the sun hiding behind grey, wispy clouds. Light showers came and went. A day to be inside feeling slightly sorry for myself after a dentist visit. But time spent visiting my lovely WP community lifted my spirits.
Then the sky slowly cleared and I sat out on the back deck to watch this gentle sunset.
The night cools to a comfortable 18c degrees. Good sleeping temperature.
As a gardener I welcome any rain in autumn as “traditionally” (what is that these days?) autumn is the dry season.
This morning the sun is peeping through those wispy clouds. Time to take a walk around the garden and say good morning to my plant community.
Then I will take a cyber trip around the world to visit my interesting blogging buddies.
