Last Light

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 20 October 2012 in Cityscape & Urban.

A stormy day,
The clouds give way, at the end of it all,
to fresh air and breezes, and the beauty of fall

The clouds open up to the light that is there
And all who see it forget about their care,
Forget about the cold, forget about the rain.
Forget about the worries that might remain

Last light of the day, on a day like this
Brings a thrill to our heart'
like an angel's kiss.

- " 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."

@Bill Brown: Thanks so much, Bill. I probably should have done a bracketed shot but when visiting family I tend to get in a rush but I still loved this scene. Thanks very much. Have a great weekend!

Hi Denny, Gorgeous image and I loved your poem. I am doing all right. Have a few things going on that have sort of made me depressed. I forced myself to go outside today and take some pictures of the trees. That helped. Still cleaning out my basement!
