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!


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." -


Same evening as the one posted a few days ago, but slightly later, just goes to show on evening like this every few minutes gives you different scenes! This is the river Thames at Erith, Kent a mile from home!


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

This one is from a truly insane evening late in may. I shot this around half an hour after midnight. The whole evening had already proven to be extraordinary. A blanket of pitch black clouds had created the most magnificent display of colour and drama you can imagine.


I knew that the midnight sun would appear in this spot at exactly this time and i wasnt disappointed. The dark clouds darkened the whole scene and the sun was intense in the gap between sea & sky. An extremely difficult shot to pull off because of the enormous dynamic range.


This may not seem real, but this is as close to reality as i was able to come... I just love how the sunlight is showing through the blueish water over the rocks.


I wish i had a reverse grad for this scene, but i still managed to get some detail out of the sky. It was a sick night...


That said, i`m not sure if the photograph itself is any good. So please let me know if it lacks anything...

For inspiration:

Sun is shining, the weather is sweet, yeah

Make you wanna move your dancing feet now

To the rescue, here I am

Want you to know, y'all, can you understand?

When the mornin´ gather the rainbow, yeah, yeah

Want you to know, I'm a rainbow too now

To the rescue, here I am

Want you to know, y'all, can you, can you, can you understand?

Sun is shining, the weather is sweet now

Make you wanna move your dancing feet, yeah

But to the rescue, here I am

Want you to know just if you can,

here I stand, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no

Can you understand me now, baby?

Do you believe me?



Inspired by Roni's sunset this morning....


This is about a half hour before the setting sun....but I just loved the star bursts on this one......Oh !!! and the heat was quite nice too......


Makes it nice on a gray and dreary day like today....


Never can tell what might show up.... for the A Team and any other team committed to healthy victory!

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.

The sun rises over the Balearic Sea. Didn't have to think too much about this just a beach and some rather nice light.

Thanks for looking


midwinter sun -32° C / 25.6° F and the dog refused to go out ....

"Soon we will be on our way

Say goodbye to yesterday

Soon we will be in the light

Swimming in the open sky

We’ll spread our wings around the stars

Watch the way we drop our scars

We will be kissing the sun

Everybody knows kissing the sun

One and one with the one you’ve chosen

We’ll spread our wings as we get higher

Spread our wings into the fire

We will be kissing the sun

Everybody knows kissing the sun

One and one And the thing explodes"

Only Heaven, 1995


Do have a great weekend!

Take care, everyone!

The sun is running away from the heavy clouds to be ontime for his sunset.

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

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 JOY of watching the sun go down in Brussels Skate board Park!

Just as the sun peaked over the horizon.

This late day zoomed in capture of the setting sun looked pretty neat with the filtered light through the haze and clouds ... and revealed a sunspot as well there on the sun surface if you look closely.


Captured while in Lubec, Maine.

...shot this while travelling inside the car travelling to the airport... sunrise at Nyaung Shwe - Lake Inle, Myanmar...

Golden summer sunset on a small lake near Mercer, WI.

round about after one hour during my fog adventure the sun finally came out. so i got a slightly different sunrise shot ;-)

Had a very brief chance to get a quick couple of shots at Fairburn from the road this aft (i.e. had about 7 mins). Got there just as the sun was setting. These swans swam very slowly into the picture. I had to ramp up the iso to get enough shutter speed so they didn't blur. I think it works though.


Thought as it was a yorkshire type image I've sent it to Paul the weather man!

Morocco - Ain Atiq Beach - Strange Sun and it wasn't the only surprise ...

The Blue Hour of this sunset on this link

Caught this yesterday very unexpectedly at sundown...this is called a "sun pillar" and would not have known this had I not been a fan of "" This is the first one I've ever seen and do wish I'd got better shots than what I had and the trees obscure the view here. Pardon the snowbanks, we've had snow!!
