evening of august 12. 2011 bronte creek


a silver edge to every cloud
scallop-shelled out from above the very late sunset trees to the south.


a small growing point of light, it rounded and swelled, pregnant with moonbeams that lit
the small enclave of tents i was one small part of.


music for alongside the moment experiencing: "last night the moon came . . . " jon hassell

This captures the mood and the moment. I felt as if I was out there in the moonlight, too. I love the silence of the night with punctuation of sounds.
Last night, I sat out in candlelight.

yes ellen - the evening of day seven of a nine-day fundraising cycling trip around lake ontario - eleven hundred kilometres - scenes and moments will pop up here every so often. steven

steven said...

deborah - i'm glad you like this. steven

aguja - the campsite was quiet - except for laughter and the crackling fire. it's so hard to take photographs of the moon. if your hand jiggles even the slightest, then the moon blurs. i did a few light paintings with that effect but they weren't worthy of much. steven

i am slightly green with envy of your fab photos of that moon...i tried the same on nearly the same day as you and failed....i need to ponder on your gorgeous header....it reminds me of.....its a breath away....its beautiful..x

kay - i feel fortunate to have the pictures and to be able to share them. the header picture was taken in upper new york state not far from rochester actually. it's in a small wetland that i spent a few hours exploring. steven

You should put together an album of headers, They have the wow factor and it goes without saying that I love your moon.

Are you all set for a new term?

steven said...

valerie thanks for that! i keep the headers in a folder. i've never thought about sharing them any other way. steven

Your header is like a painting.

The moon has such a hold over us. Never ceases to enthrall me.
