Sky watch Friday - Over the coal harbour



Sky Watch Friday is a very popular meme that is hosted by Klaus, Sylvia, Sandy, Louise, Wren and Fishing Guy. To view some wonderful skies or participate in the meme just click on the above banner.






Long time no see

Yup! It's been a while. Suddenly I felt the urge to put in a few shots here. Dunno why.
Life is busy with three dogs and frequent visits to the forum for Spanish rescue dogs. So all other netting has been put on hold.
A bit unfortunate but perhaps I'll get into it slowly again. At least for a few of my favourite sites.
Anyway, here are some shots from this past time that I have been absent. I just thought of a reason too. Right now it's so damp, dark, murky and muddy - absolutely boring in fact - that some more colour is needed into this drab existance. What better way to do it than remembering the summer and early autumn gone.

Another droplet


A third droplet

Another river scene

As it turns out it ended up beeing a rather wet post anyway. Well, these kinds of waters are more pleasant, I think, than the endless drizzle from the sky.

Luonnon ihmeitä ... The wonders of nature

Olen ollut vieläkin kovasti varattuna toisaalla ja osasyynä on siihen alla oleva suurin ihme kaikista. Hän on uusi karvainen vauvani. Espanjan poika Rufino tuli ja valloitti pikku kokoonpanomme yhdellä silmäyksellä. Hurmaava, avoin, leikkisä ja pusutteleva nuori mies. Nyt koiria onkin sitten triplasti.

I have been occupied elsewhere still and partly it is because the biggest wonder of them all below. He is my new hairy baby. The spanish boy Rufino came and conquered our little flock in one glance. He is charming, open, playfull and full of kisses this young fellow. Now I have triplets.

Yltäkylläisyyden kausi ... The season of plenty











Vielä on ripaus kesääkin jäljellä ... Still a smidgeon of summer is left too







Vaan pikkuhiljaa luonto valmistautuu pimeään kauteen ... Still the nature does slowly prepare for the dark season











Monta ihmeellistä asiaa voi luonnossa nähdä ... Many strange things can be seen in nature
