"Liftoff"

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 7 October 2012 in Landscape & Rural.

The rain poured for 2 days, the temperatures dropped, our middle grandsons football team lost the game but he scored both of their touchdowns..in the rain...in the cold......Then, later in the day at the golden hour, as is often the case, the sun made an appearance and things gor really dramatic, really quick. I was granted permission to get out and take a few shots up the road at a few spots that I felt would have potential... They did.

This is from the first spot just minutes from Amy's house - looking Northeast. This ridge is almost always pretty in the fall and it directly faces the setting sun. I thought you might like to start this little series with a "broad shot" jst to give you an idea of the variety of colours seen here.

I have about 3 or 4 more from this one panic-stricken photo shoot (I only had about an 50 minutes before the sun would totally disappear). I plan to post a new image every second day.

We are having a good time Thanks to all of you for being so kind and commenting on my blog - I am really sorry that I have not been able to respond but I thank you all so much...I hope you enjoy ;-)

- " We do not move forward from a middle opinion, which is undemocratic but mediocratic.
We advance from a creative passion "- (Edgar Morin)

- "To photograph is to hold one's breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It's at
that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy."
- Henri Cartier-Bresson.

::Words from Denny:
- My beliefs, and values, have always been strongly tied-to music, especially Jazz, and Blues.
- The following artists and lyrics seem to "sum-up" where my spirit resides:
EARTH WIND AND FIRE;
"HOLD ON TO YOUR SPIRIT,
ALWAYS FEEL YOUR SOUL....
HONOR THE MAGIC IN YOUR HEART"
; Earth Wind and Fire
