Autumn Fires – Lakes of Blue

 


Autumn Fires

IN the other gardens
And all up the vale,
From the autumn bonfires
See the smoke trail!

Pleasant summer over
And all the summer flowers,
The red fire blazes,
The gray smoke towers.

Sing a song of seasons!
Something bright in all!
Flowers in the summer,
Fires in the fall!*

*Stevenson, Robert Louis (1850–1894)

Sunset on Walker’s Landing


~ ~ ~
Between Dawn and Sunrise

Were silver pink, and had a soul,
Which soul were shy, which shyness might
A visible influence be, and roll
Through heaven and earth — ’twere thou, O light!

O rhapsody of the wraith of red,
O blush but yet in prophecy,
O sun-hint that hath overspread
Sky, marsh, my soul, and yonder sail.
-Sidney Lanier

What is more beautiful than a gorgeous sunrise-sunset and its reflective colors and reflective lights on the waterfront?  I know of none with the exception of the glorious colors of our universe in space.  Whether photographing oceans, rivers, lakes or waterways they are and will always be a favorite for nature-landscape photographers.  Capture them wherever you are, create beautiful art and glory in them and share in their beauty!

Another Beautiful Sunset

Beautiful sunsets deserve a second showing.  As we ready for the beautiful sunrise and sunsets in the Shenandoah Valley we are inspired by the simplicity of photography subjects that can be a forefront to our amazing sunrise-sunsets here in the Valley.  They always inspire poetic verse!

“The first stab of love is like a sunset,
a blaze of color — oranges, pearly pinks, vibrant purples…”
