Pink, fresh light fills petal husks
Dried by winters wind
Pulling back the curtains of the bay window, the light of another new day splashed across the wooden floor. It was tinged pink, which made her look again at the sky beyond. Vivid pink and orange light was painted through the winter clouds, and the whole world was washed with these new colours. The familiar garden path looked exotic and inviting, and the old dried out flowers of the climbing hydrangea, which only the day before had been a dried out brown, were now luscious luminous pink. New colours for a new day.
Hi, I'm Seonaid, and I share my home on the shores of Loch Ness deep in the Scottish Highlands with my husband, my son and a couple of dogs. I love art which is here now and gone tomorrow...like food and nature...but also have a passion for vintage and the ancient past! Nature is my favourite muse, with her wild ever shifting seasons. I have been using and teaching mindfulness and relaxation for over 12 years, and have yet to become any sort of expert :-) I'm a Psychotherapist and Cancer Support Specialist in Maggies Highlands

That first photo is just incredible … the petals looks so delicate in that light
What a gift – pink light and blue skies, what a refreshing and enticing way to begin the day. Thanks for sharing it with us, Seonaid.
It was a beautiful way to start the day, and very unexpected. The light was very briefly at just the right angle to fill these dried petals….10 minutes later and the show was over!
I am just at the beginning of winter here and frigid temps return. It is such a joy to see glimpses of spring in synchronicity with your natural way of painting the frame for the pictures.
I think nature is teasing us a little with this lucious pink light in the dried out petals….we have a good couple of months to go before we can really look forward to spring blossoms….but isnt it nice to dream and remember what will come next Ken 🙂
Gorgeous sky! Love these captures, Seonaid!
Thanks Amy, who know pink and blue could look so good together!
Blue sky? What a novel concept … Thank you for the reminder!
My pleasure Penny…..we’ve had quite a lot of clear crisp blue skies….but not much of that lovely white stuff which you captured so beautifully in your last post 🙂
Pink! Nature is so clever as are you for spotting it 🙂
She really is very clever, and timing it seems is everything as the whole show was over 10 minutes later!
She can be kind as well as cruel, Mother Nature, can’t she Seonaid? I love that roseate glow too. Sometimes on the morning frost or glorious evening skies. 🙂 Thanks for making me smile.
She really can be, but on this morning she was at her prettiest, despite the cold. I love pinks you get in the midst of winter here….almost makes up for the very short hours of light when its so pretty! We’ve has some lovely bright days up here, but not too much frost and ice yet….I’m sure she has them tucked up her sleeve for us though 🙂
Gorgeous photos! Somehow it feels as if you’re inviting spring to come. A bit early perhaps, but if I were spring, I would make sure to hurry and come and flirt with your camera lens ASAP!
Best wishes for this new year!
Oh I love this comment, and the idea of Spring being enticed to come out and flirt with my camera lens. If only I was that persuasive…just imagine the wild and stunning weather I would try to entice out of mother nature 🙂
Oh well I will have to be content with going out and keeping my eyes open!
Best wishes for 2015!
Your talents never cease to amaze me – both in words and your exquisite photography. I look forward to all of your posts! Peace . . .
What a gorgeous comment thank you. Its lovely to think that someone is anticipating my next posts, makes the whole blogging thing so worthwhile 🙂
I do look forward to them! 🙂
You have captured the beauty of nature.
Thank you, it was just so pretty, but quite fleeting, gone in under 10 minutes! Timing it seems is everything 🙂
You have quite a decorator over there.
You know Bruce the decorator’s full of surprises, who knew pink and blue could look so good together!
How is it possible – pink? Lovely and promising!
I know I really had to look twice, the whole world had turned, just briefly pink and blue…it was magical!
Photos full of hope and light Seonaid! Happy New Year !!
And Happy New Year to you, delighted you can feel the hope in the light 🙂
Beauty shots against the sky, so full of warmth and sunshine, golden.
Happy New Year and many a more reader of your blog. 🙂
Salva, what a wonderful comment, I’m so happy that you enjoyed my shots, and I hope to see you here visiting my blog often over 2015!
That should be a viable venture. 🙂
I definitely haven’t seen a sky that colour today!
Lovely shots Seonaid.
Thanks Sue, it was a wonderful bright blue winters day up here…..dont know how long it will last!
Enjoy. We are all fog and frost here.
