''...È uno specchio, questo mare.
Qui, nel suo ventre, ho visto me stesso.
Ho visto davvero...''
Egret puts the brakes on as it comes into land on the Somerset Levels.
I need air....
Apologising for the low mood today. Simply tired. Gonna sleep. I have to catch up tomorrow... Sorry if you missed me today. :( Thanks everyone for always being there. Gosh... well.. gd nite my flickr buddies..
It was always taken for granted that we would have clean air and clean water. We know better than that now. We need to be wise enough to preserve the air we breath and the water we drink. I drank this water in cupped hands. It was very cold and simply delicious. These joys come with the price of responsibilty and respect for the natural resourses.
Che fosse possibile
Cambiare il mondo che c'è
E' che per farlo sai
Prima di tutto dovrei
Dovrei decidere se
So fare senza di te

Last night there was a balloon club event nearby so I had a plan to go at dusk to take a few shots and then add some creative Photoshop work. But, when I looked at this one I thought, how does one improve on three hot air balloons floating against the background of a beautiful sunset? So, for the first time in a long time, I am posting a shot right out of the camera. (Don't get used to it, though). lol

The Aire and Calder is a canalisation of the River Calder from Wakefield to Castleford, where it joins the branch from Leeds, which follows the River Aire
There's a cloud but the water remains calm. Reaching in, the sun's fingers clutch the dawn to pass, even out it's a precious thing to bear.
And I know she's reached my heart, in thin air.
Yes, I know she's reached my heart, in thin air.
It's not in my past to presume. Love can keep on moving in both directions
How to be happy and true is the quest we're taking on t o g e t h e r.
One of my last shots taken leaving South Wawona, Yosemite. The mist and late afternoon sun was quite a spectacle to see, especially in this amazing setting.
Better in the light box

Dachstein view from Gosau, Austria
Paloma en vuelo por los tejados de Úbeda
Pigeon in flight on the roofs of Ubeda
Up flowery stairways of eternity
I whirled in wonder and untrammeled joy,
An atom, yet a portion of His dream—
His dream that knows no end. . . .
I was the rain,
I was the dawn, I was the purple east,
I was the moonlight on enchanted nights,
(Yet time was lost to me); I was a flower
For one to pluck who loved me; I was bliss,
And rapture, splendid moments of delight;
And I was prayer, and solitude, and hope;
And always, always, always I was love.
From Beyond the Stars by Charles Hanson Towne (Nov 1912)
