Nocturne - Summer Twilight - SWF



My SWF on this new meme blog

Thanks to our Host Klaus and his energetic team: Sandy, Sylvia, Wren, Fishing Guy and ...Louise. Look UP!






This post is bit untimely as we are into the winter, yet, these were taken long ago on a Summer Twilight over  Parkway Avenue, Quakers Hill as soon as I alighted from the bus. This dreamy scenario of the northwestern sky held my breath and my eyes were transfixed into its blue and white strands of clouds as carefully brushed into the canvas by an artist. Then I heard some music played on the air - Nocturne by Chopin - of course, it was only my imagination playing.

Cheers!
