Half-Light

The weekly photo challenge at The Daily Post: Half-Light:

I love evening half-light: that time just before dusk when the sky still holds light as darkness creeps across the land. Share a photograph inspired by a favorite poem, verse, story, or song lyric. 

I relate to almost everything written by John Muir, my favorite poet. His internal journey as he explore the wilderness of California, have a lot in common with what I experience doing the same thing. It’s almost creepy.

This grand show is eternal. It is always sunrise somewhere; the dew is never all dried at once; a shower is forever falling; vapor is ever rising. Eternal sunrise, eternal sunset, eternal dawn and gloaming, on sea and continents and islands, each in its turn, as the round earth rolls.  – John Muir

I think this poem, matches this half-light photo. I thoroughly enjoy looking at the other entries this week. Light is a true photographers favorite tool, making this week’s photo challenge so much fun!

Love & Light,

Maria

  1. Twilight. Skymning. Two beautiful words for the most beautiful part of the day.
    Between day and night. Calm and stillness prevails.
    Having seen many of the places John Muir writes about, I agree with you.
    It’s like the feeling I have for Dan Andersson’s poems, having spent a good
    deal of time in Dalarnas Finnmark, which is what he writes.

    • Jag kan inte annat än hålla med Ruth 🙂 Dan Andersson är en av mina svenska favorit författare. Dalarna har en hel del gemensamt med Kalifornien. Speciellt the Sierra Nevada’s. Kanske är det delvis därför jag känner en så stark dragning till det området? Dalkulla som jag är 😉
