Gorgeously intense colours! So beautiful, how that tiny sliver of a moon balances with the large dark silhouettes of the "homestead." Your house has a very intriguing profile. Oh, and how lovely are the charcoal smears of clouds across the deepening sky, providing movement and grace to the whole scene.

*sigh* feeling nostalgic for country living again. Beautiful.

Jasmine said...

Beautiful, as usual. I wish I had a home like that. It has character and atmosphere, from the inside and outside.

Arija said...

With the wind whipping the old pine in a frenzy, your house looks like a refuge, a haven of peace tucked away on the edge of the fiery sky. The moon adds even more atmosphere.

It's ever so lovely. I can just imagine the door opening a crack, then some more, and a party spilling out to fill the darkness with points of light.

Debbi said...

What a spectacular photo! The colors, composition, sliver of moon - wow wow wow. You should frame a print of this!

Read your response to my comment. I would love to have a crow "pet". A good friend of mine did growing up, and her stories are amazing. It would ride around on her shoulder, keeping her company in the neighborhood, chasing off dogs. . . .

Gwen Buchanan said...

Thank you Everyone... No matter where we live in the world, The beauty of nature leaves us all spellbound, a good deal of the time... don't you agree!!!

MILLY said...

What ever your day, it would all melt into insignificance looking at that beautiful sky.
I guess that soon your sky will be full of snow flakes.

Sandy said...

What a gorgeous photo and the lone house there on the right (yours, right)..

Ruth said...

You, John, Max and the animals live with views most of us would have to travel to a resort to see. I am so happy for you. What's really great about it, Gwen, is that you absorb and appreciate it better than most of us would, perfect! Now I realize I've never wondered how you got that particular piece of land. Places like that don't come available every day.

It's an incredibly moving photo. The moon and home, together. The tree, the graceful clouds, the range of complementary colors in the big sky. You are such a treasure.

Jennifer MacNeill-Traylor said...

What an absolutely amazing photo!! Thank you for sharing.

Spectacular Gwen. Takes my breath away and such scenes offset the opposite in our lives and the world. There's a balance isn't there, and gifts like this can tip the scales.

layers said...

OMG-- only nature can produce such vivid colors and contrast-- and your home against such a backdrop of colors-wow.

rivergardenstudio said...

Oh Gwen... your home is spectacular here... especially so because you and your family made it... it must have been fun to see it so from afar... Happy Holidays, Roxanne

Gwen Buchanan said...

Oh Roxanne that far away view is the 1/2 way mark of coming up our driveway after we make our way to the top of the bluff...

Shelley said...

Ahh Gwen my Seaside Friend, how these folks have come to know and appreciate you. Your home is a reflection of your combined creativities and creativeness. I look up the bluff each time I pass and as I turn the drive I have to look out at the sea. I am forever telling you I would never tire from your view and this, my friend is oh so true!
Thank you - for being you and for sharing your time with us.
