April


Rocky waters outside the coastline of Haugesund.
I could hardly hold the camera still, as my squirrel daughter started climbing the stairs in the rough wind.

If there's a bustle in your hedgerow, don't be alarmed now,
It's just a spring clean for the May queen.
Yes, there are two paths you can go by, but in the long run
There's still time to change the road you're on.
And it makes me wonder.

Your head is humming and it won't go, in case you don't know,
The piper's calling you to join him,
Dear lady, can you hear the wind blow, and did you know
Your stairway lies on the whispering wind.

Jimmy Page and Robert Plant

I love your photographs. Those from last week, of Serina... wow! And this lighthouse, also wow. Thanks for starting my day right with a little Stairway. :)

Felisol:

Your pictures make me long for Norway! There is something deep in my soul that loves your land. It began with my mother, and it continues.

Keep that camera going!

Our weather gets warmer - yours is still chilly. Love the bit of red with all that blue and rock.

Spectacular photo Felisol. Can almost hear the song of the sea with the poem too.


I read in my newspaper that Bob dylan performed in China!

Your daughter is indeed quite the climber. Ah to be young like that! Lovely photo.

Patti said...

Ah, "Stairway to Heaven" - an oldie but goodie

Nice photo of the lighthouse.

Happy Ruby Tuesday, Felisol.

My dad has wonderful stories for me about Norway when I was a child...he would send photos once in a while....seeing yours makes those stories come alive! Made me miss my dad a bit too :(

Visiting from Debbie's blog...I am the one who sent her the little girls journal and now I am seeing all the bloggers that added to her journal. We so enjoyed reading your entry and the pictures you had in the journal. It expanded the world to my children.

Nice to meet you from a Texas entry in a little girl's journal that is now connecting bloggers.

Thanks for stopping by and nice to meet you.

Beautiful shot!
Serina has more courage that I could have mustered up to climb that ladder. Although I would have wanted too. :)

I love the music of Page and Plant!!!!

The coastline of Noway looks rough, full of large rocks often under a murky blue-gray shy. The amazing part is that the little lighthouse with its minimal ruby transforms the scene, adding a bright and joyous to the rough. Serina looks fearless as she climbs inside the cold and strong wind. Such a lovely place by the sea!

The red really stands out against the starkness of a chilly day. Your daughter is very brave. Love the Stairway lyrics. Very nice post!

Hi Felisol,

Can it be spring there? Isn't that snow I see still n the ground?

Here in Florida the temperature is supposed to reach 92 degrees this afternoon.

Your postings and photos remind me that the world is a much bigger place than I imagine.

Wow! The wind may be rough, but what a beautiful scene! The red of the lighthouse fairly glows!

Felisol said...

Hi John C,
only tiny bits of snow left now. My mother still has some in her garden though.
The white near the pole is quartz. Lots of quartz implants in the rock types around here. Bedrock of caldeonian origin is what you are seeing here.
Harsh and rough, but solid.

Jim said...

Beautiful, Felisol. Everything, the picture, the tower, the water, the poem, and Serena too, even from so far away.

I'm glad of course that she didn't fall. But it didn't or you would have posted about that.

It is nice too that the snow has mostly melted. Your March picture had the rocks scattered still with snow.

Wasn't that something that we were both in London and didn't know!
Besides visiting grandchildren and kids and London we visited the Greenwich Observatory and the Milton Keynes area for excitement and diverstion. KP went with us to the observatory.

Lovely photo Felisol. I can imagine that it is still very cold. Serina up on that ladder... in the wind? She is a daring lass.

But everything is just so beautiful. The gray landscape. The waters. The sky.

Even the song you shared.

Love
Lidj

Annie said...

Love this, Elise. These lyrics are perfect for this picture. Yay, Serina, for braving the elements and the ladder.
