Autumn Sunset on the Water

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 29 September 2018 in Landscape & Rural.

Lilly Pads floating in the water look like silver dollars and gold bullion as they reflect the suns last light. The air is cooler and the days are shorter...The feeling of peace is refreshing in this tense time....
We breath and dream of better times!

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."

What a gloriously rich Autumn moment this offers . . and, yes, there is a sense welcome of peace, too.

Soft ripples on the water create movement amidst the colorful lily pads. This has to be a good place to be, in these times of "irritations" (to say the least). The hope always is that things will improve.
