Perspectives in Shadow and Light

December 22nd, 2010

Perhaps we’ve turned that corner… passing the shortest day of the year.   Maybe in other ways too?    I had a comment recently from someone enjoying one of my older photos that prompted a little searching around, and smiling at the beauty of life around here just a few years ago.   I found some perspective, of winter shadows and light, from late winter of 2007.  

I love the contrasts between the ice and water, the shadows and patterns from the landscape.  Everything changes, and all is beautiful- even if such moments are fleeting.  It speaks to me of peace and change…  and for how we see and experience the world around us…   and how that world may be viewed in such different ways by different people.  

May you have a Blessed Christmas and Holiday Season, and a wonderful New Year!

  1. i love how the encroaching ice reveals the stillness of the water. do you ice skate on your pond? to note the solstice; tonight on my drive home at 4:30, it wasn’t raining…and i thought, the day is a little longer now. it’s a powerful time. may you and yours have a lovely holiday season, however you celebrate it.

  2. Happy Christmas to you and all of yours also, Beau.

  3. Merry Christmas to you and yours and a good 2011.

    During this
    Christmas season
    May you be blessed
    With the spirit of the season,
    which is peace,
    The gladness of the season,
    which is hope,
    And the heart of the season,
    which is love.

    Merry Christmas to you and your family Beau!

  6. I enjoy paddling on a river that’s partly frozen. The current flowing by the ice around the edges… The long shadows are a norm this time of the year, but the world is beautiful. Have a Merry Christmas!

  7. Warm wishes!

  8. Hope you had a wonderful Christmas Beau! and wishes for a very Happy New Year!

  9. Pics like this make me shiver. I’m gonna get up now and turn off the air con! I know I’m going to have to go back to the states for a few years but I SHALL return here to end my days in the year round balmy warmth of the tropics. Only a few more hours and its ’11 here in the Phils; so Happy New Year!

    Wow, I stopped in to drop a note and see that the last time I stopped in was six days shy of a year ago. Time really does fly. I keep hoping that someday when you get things straightened out you will come back to the blogging fold. Peace.

    I can’t believe another year has passed since my last comment. Hope you have peace in your life. I still miss your blog.
