Golden Horizons

The day had brewed herself into a blend of light and dark, and now here at her very edge all was revealed. Away from the tightly woven centre, gaps and spaces opened allowing golden light to pour through in unexpected, unplanned patterns. She no longer had the energy to hold it all together, and so the mysterious chaos of liminal space seeped in, and with it the wild beauty of the edge.

The golden horizon, where the triple edges of earth, sky and day meet, offers the potential of freshly dreamed change. Anything is possible from the edges and liminal spaces, where nothing is fixed or certain. The next moment is unknown, and with this, hope can pour into our hearts, along with its shadow fear. All is changing in a beautiful dance between light and dark, and certainty is dissolved into the spaces. Do we dare to be swept in to the beauty, releasing our threads of certainty into the challenge of change.

The day surrendered and golden light poured unbridled across the water and the sky. Liquid treasure from the distant horizon, dazzled us with a velvet wave of hope and promise. Swept into the eternal unseen night, lying just beyond the curve of earth, we fell into the golden river of the falling sun flowing into eternity.

    Wonderful light in all of them especially in the first one. I was trying to find your Dubrovnik post, Seonaid, but couldn’t. Would you share the link?

    If I had to imagine the paradise your first photo could be a good example! Great! ๐Ÿ™‚

  18. If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it several times now … you live in a most beautiful place (but, you know that). I don’t know whether your words do it … or whether the photos alone are responsible … but your images always give nature personality. In this particular series the descending shafts of light look to be cleansing the environment, or perhaps energizing it, and preparing it for you another day. Thanks. D

    • What a great comment David. Giving nature personality is exactly my intention….it’s what nature fills me with when I’m out there amongst her ๐Ÿ™‚
      I love the idea if the light cleansing the landscape….really lively emotional image, thank you.

  19. Colline says:
