Blue and Gold Mosaic Monday




I am often in awe at this beautiful part of the world we live in. Sea, mountains, forest, beaches - all are within a half hour's drive. During late summer and early autumn, the days are filled with golden light that beguiles us into being outdoors. 

Bight: A curve or recess in a coastline. 

A recent walk took us to MacKenzie Bight. Late afternoon.

Few words passed between us as we absorbed the great blue bowl of sky above, lapping waves below, and golden grass all around. Blue and gold. 

Linking late to Mosaic Monday, hosted by Mary of the Little Red House. I wasn't able to upload photos yesterday, some glitch with Blogger, I suppose, that disappeared in the night.

  4. I can just imagine that these sights were even more beautiful in person! Your photos are amazing! I remember as a child going to the lake every summer and sitting at sunset looking out at the water. I'll never forget it! Hugs!

  14. "Bight" is one of those words for which I have often meant to look up a definition.
    I especially love the golden grass contrasting against the blue water in the sunlight.
