ludere luminis


…I stopped for something else…

…enjoyed that something else…

…reluctantly left…

…back on the road…

…toward the original destination…

…the Earth moved in its way…

…’round the Sun…

…on its axis…

…and the horizon lowered…

…to bring us “Sunrise”….

  3. It looks very warm there. I don’t recognize the plant but it’s a pretty one that I’d bet flutters in the breeze.

    • It was warm, Allen…but an early summer morning kind of warm…not oppressive yet. And yes, the seed-heads definitely flutter in the breeze…which complicates photographing them more than a little bit. πŸ˜‰

  4. Very well done, Scott! You’ve captured a thing I’ve tried and failed to… such beauty when you happen across it and stop to catch it. Thanks for sharing.

  5. That something else was well worth the stop. The gentle treatment you’ve given these brings out their natural, pastel glow.

    Oh my gosh, what a wonderful series. I can imagine the peaceful feeling of being there at that moment and also the joy of knowing that you’d captured such great images!

    • Thank you, LB…most certainly peaceful…aside from the freeway traffic in the background…but it was a beautiful sunrise…and there was much more hope than certainty in what I might have captured!

  7. You’re a poet, Scott, a poet of light. These are really beautiful, and looking at the older photos, I appreciate the way you’ve moved along, looking at the same thing in different ways, seeing what you can do with it. This series embodies joy. πŸ™‚

    • Thank you very much, Lynn…and how nice to know that this is what Joy looks like. I know for certainty now that I have experienced it…. πŸ™‚
