more horizons

horizon:  line at which earth and sky appear to meet   (Oxford dictionary)

After thinking more about horizons, I looked through our photos for some horizons we have captured in New Brunswick.  Once you start to look for them, they are everywhere!  

overlooking the hilly area of Sussex... Poley Mountain (a local ski hill) is in the background

Blueberry fields provide a way to get perspective on our mostly forested landscape… 

a blueberry field and the distant hills of Queens County

Horizons are made more interesting by the passing seasons…
in autumn…

maple trees in autumn costume along the Trans-Canada Highway in Victoria County

…and in winter.

bare trees in the Grand Lake Meadows area in winter... a hawk in the tree and a treed horizon if you look carefully

Of course, I can’t forget the horizon of the Bay of Fundy…

Bay of Fundy at Saint Martins

…the horizon viewed from the ocean…

Charlotte County viewed from the waters of the Bay of Fundy

…and the horizon created by islands.

'The Wolves', special islands in the Bay of Fundy

Look to the hoizon, and see where land and sky, and sometimes water, meet.

  3. Is this for a poetry club you’ve joined or is it simply a different form of poetry you’ve decided to include on your blog? Never could understand the appeal of Haiku’s but I do know this one is well done. Thanks for coming over to my poetry blog and commenting.

    • Hi. I don’t often write haiku. They don’t come to me naturally. Occasionally I try one… Jane
