Another day’s end

8 01 2013

It never ceases to amaze me that there is always so much worth recording when I wander on down to the beach at sunset. There is something so special about this time on the verge of night. Especially on the shore. Elemental forces meeting here in this liminal space show their splendour in this ever changing play of light and colour. I feel uplifted and transformed…….

I love how no matter what, there’s always something inspiring to be found on the beach at sunset. Even on tne dullest day. Sometimes I think about leaving the camera behind. But if I do, I’m sure to regret it.

First sunset of the New Year

5 01 2013

The first sunset of the new year gave me an opportunity to capture a spectacular light show on Sunrise Beach. The colours were breath-takingly gorgeous and truly inspiring.

I have taken to walking on the beach close to where I live almost every night at sunset. I’m blown away by the beauty of the light at this time of day, never the same, constantly evolving into something ever more luminous…..until a moment when everything starts to fade and night is on its way. As I feel myself becoming more and more at one with this sacred space between earth, sky and sea and feel the presence of the goddess reclaiming me, the sea eagle wheels above me as she does her nightly scan of her patch of the littoral dunes.IMG_1620
