Light at Day's End

"Audience for a Sunset" (Click to enlarge)Locking up the nature center for the day, I took a walk around the wildlife sanctuary to unwind before facing the rush hour drive. The cold wind bit my fingers and face as I tried to hold my camera steady.

The low-angle of sunlight at day's end shines a quality of light on natural features and objects that draws me inexorably into contemplation. Long shadows reach out to touching things they could not grasp during summer months, and cause familiar boundaries and features to shape-shift. In this, there is a quieting down of logic that reveals the hidden spirit of things.

I love the way you write and describe everything. I feel as though I am there too. You really
should publish all your beautiful works.
