"Selective Sunset" - Seattle visits Vermont...

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 22 October 2012 in Landscape & Rural.

On the rainiest of days in Vermont where we were visiting our daughter Amy and her family, the sun pulled one of it's good old Seattle tricks: Rain lasting almost all day long. Then, just at the end of day, out it comes, making an appearance through the clouds to pull one of its patented, "beams, colour, reflection, rays, dark here-light there" stunts!....Just like Seattle, but here we were in Vermont.
A reddish hue was cast upon glow the far trees and it sent a soft pink reflection onto the clouds above in such an amazing way. Mother Nature definitely knows how to put on a show.

** Staples Singers - "Respect Yourself"

- " 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
