Greek Elegaic Mimnermus, Frag 12

 

Ἠέλιος μὲν γὰρ ἔλαχεν πόνον ἤματα πάντα,

οὐδέ ποτ' ἄμπαυσις γίνεται οὐδεμία

ἵπποισίν τε καὶ αὐτῷ, ἐπεὶ ῥοδοδάκτυλος Ἠὼς

Ὠκεανὸν προλιποῦσ' οὐρανὸν εἰσαναβῇ.

τὸν μὲν γὰρ διὰ κῦμα φέρει πολυήρατος εὐνή,

ποικίλη, Ἡφαίστου χερσὶν ἐληλαμένη,

χρυσοῦ τιμήεντος, ὑπόπτερος, ἄκρον ἐφ' ὕδωρ

εὕδονθ' ἁρπαλέως χώρου ἀφ' Ἑσπερίδων

γαῖαν ἐς Αἰθιόπων, ἵνα δὴ θοὸν ἅρμα καὶ ἵπποι

ἑστᾶσ', ὄφρ' Ἠὼς ἠριγένεια μόλῃ·

ἔνθ' ἐπέβη ἑτέρων ὀχέων Ὑπερίονος υἱός.

 

For Helios the Sun’s lot is toil every day and there is never any respite for him and his horses, from the moment rose-fingered Eos (the Dawn) leaves Okeanos and goes up into the sky. A lovely bed, hollow, forged by the hands of Hephaistos, of precious gold and winged, carries him, as he sleeps soundly, over the waves on the water’s surface from the place of the Hesperides [in the West] to the land of the Aithiopes [in the East], where his swift chariot and horses stand until early-born Eos (the Dawn) comes. There the son of Hyperion mounts his other vehicle." -

In recent days, a lot of wind, gray and wet,

Luckily I have a well-stocked archive :-)

An old oak reached out its arms to the sinking winter sun. Starved of warmth.

Another in this series! I did this with a mirror sunk in some water to get the reflection, the grass stem was placed in a tub with earth to hold it up and sprayed with water to get the droplet for those of you that are interested in such things! with the aid of PS as well!

  

A setting sun

Shot at Cadzandbad, the Netherlands, where the sun is setting every evening above the Northsea. Caught in the photo: a couple of Common Tern (Sterna hirundo - Visdiefje (nl))

:-)

The sun rises over the San Francisco Bay Bridge, San Francisco, California.

Wednesday's "Grand Opening"

The rest of the day proved to be just as beautiful as its beginning.

Lake Emerald, in Oakland Park, Florida -US- near Fort Lauderdale.

Seen from my balcony over the lake, Wednesday morning, October 11, 2006.

'obscured sun' On Black rather better.

 

Same viewpoint as this one -- flickr.com/photos/algo/328187097/

 

This was very strange light. It had been sunny, but the clouds were rolling over, soon to be quite dark. This was a moment in between, almost a ghostly light.

Hopa Limanı / Artvin / Türkiye

Hopa harbour / Artvin / Turkey

It was a sunny/cloudy after rain atmosphere! clear!

 

Technical details how i did the shot:

 

-ND filter to prolong exposure

 

-Tripod, in mid exposure move up or down till you find the sweet spot photo!

 

-used some cheap Sunset filter

 

-PS couple of curves adjustment

Não fique triste quando ninguém notar o que fez de bom

Afinal...

O sol faz um enorme espetaculo ao nascer,e mesmo assim, a maioria de nós continua dormindo.

Location: El Nido ,Palawan Island, Philippines 2010.

I took this shot during sunset, with my nikon zoom!

The sun awakes from slumber

And paints the palette sky

Of crimson red and amber

Beyond our world so high.

The whole Vale had been covered in fog -- for once too much for me to take many photos.

Then on my way home, through the fog, I began to see the sun light up the sky above the hills. Of Course I stopped, and watched it rise slowly, and finally appear. Pure Magic -- above the fog.

Sun is shining, the weather is sweet

Make you want to move your dancing feet

To the rescue, here i am

Want you to know, y'all, where i stand

Nice example of a Sun Bow yesterday.

The sun is trying to burn through a snow streamer crossing the field. The fence is a seasonal installation that helps prevent the snow from drifting onto the road - thus the name "snow fence". It is removed in the spring. You can just make out a farm silo, and the tree line on the opposite side of the field. Campbell's Cross, Caledon, Ontario.

The sun going down tonight was huge. I had to take a few pictures of it after I worked an 11 hour day, rushed to get my camera, and barely got out in time to see this.

 

I'm working a new job and I have not had the time to take pictures of anything else.

 

I hope sunsets will be entertaining enough for now (if that's all I ever get around to posting) and that you don't get sick of them coming from me. I promise they will all be different.

 

Have a nice evening.
