Winter Sunset Over Peil's Farm

 

It's freezing and everything seems to be covered in white. Did I say that it's very cold? But at a moment like this, with the glow of the setting sun, the cold no longer has the same bite. The birds are flying to roost and somehow it's all bearable. Spring will surely come.

Coastal Cliff Erosion Kingsport Beach

 

This was taken on another late afternoon walk with Joni and Linda at low tide with a threatening sky framing the horizon. (It frequently seems to be threatening over Blomidon Cliff that you see in the distance…. or is it that I just like to take photographs when the sky is heavy with cloud??)

Storms will often leave a changed landscape and on the latest of those walks we could really see the difference in the formation of the sandy cliff walls and the trees that had fallen down the sides of the face. The light was just hitting the sand and the end of that spit of land.

Because Everyone Needs a Little Peace and Tranquility

 

The coast of Nova Scotia is varied in its makeup, even along stretches of the same beach. You can be clambering over boulders, walking through mud with long bright green sea grasses underfoot or across pebbles and then suddenly come to an expanse of sand reminiscent of the most beautiful tropical beaches. The gentle lapping of the waves as the tide recedes has a calming effect on our minds that can get through to us and have a positive affect on the rest of our day in spite of the stressful lives we live.

This is Kingsport Beach in the Minas Basin, Nova Scotia, looking at the cliffs of Blomidon in the distance.

Lobster Boat Collecting Traps at Sunset on the Bay of Fundy

Last weekend we were with our friends sitting on the shore of the Bay. We watched one lone lobster boat make its way across the scene in front of the setting sun, picking up its traps as it went. The bright white and blue lights on the little boat seemed to glow brighter as the scene got darker. I was reminded of a scene that my Finnish friend +Mari Luukkonen had posted the day or so before. It doesn't matter where we are in the world, such scenes speak to all of us.

Have a lovely, peaceful weekend, all!

Breaking the Fall-144/365

I have got myself into a downward spiral of not publishing my photos. They might not seem 'good enough' or it might be that I don't want to show one more floral image, or I might be too tired (most frequent) or it might be too late. Whatever the reason, I knew I had to break the cycle and just upload and share. This peony, one of my favourite flowers, was resting on the path, so splendid in its unfurling pinkness, so sweet in its wonderful perfume, it too easily might have been trodden underfoot. It's just as lovely as those standing proud above it. So (for my friend Joyce) here it is. 😀

Blackberry Promise-142/365

This flower, from a wild blackberry just seems like a tiny world, so much going on, the closer you look. And this holds the promise of fruit for the summer. It's going to be a good year for them as they are everywhere in the hedges and at the edge of the woods. Plenty for the birds and us to eat and freeze.

Aquilegia (Columbine)-141/365

Sometimes you just have to get down at ground level and look up to see the best things. These hang their heads and so the only way to see them and appreciate their full beauty is to do just that. I love Aquilegia, (Granny's Bonnet, or Columbine). These grow randomly in our gardens and self-set in clusters that surprise us early each summer.

Pure and Simple-139/365

Natural, simple, clean and pure. They have very short lives, but they are so beautiful and give such joy to those who see them. Whether wild or cultivated, flowers are perfect works of art.

Just Across the Road-134/365

We have lived here for 17 years and the day before yesterday was the first day I discovered this lovely spot. It is at the foot of the neighbour's garden and I had never gone down there. Yesterday evening there was a lovely warn evening light. This is a view looking back up towards the village.
