A view of the Horizon at Dublin, for Nancy Merrill’s A Photo a Week Challenge: On the Horizon
For Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Trees
I don’t think I’ve ever experienced absolute silence, but this one came pretty close.
I think it’s actually the feeling of bliss I experienced, away from the everyday noise and hustle, that makes me associate this scene with silence.
There’s just something that connects one to the elements when strolling along a riverbank (or a lake in this case), watching clouds play in a fiery sky, with the breeze in your hair.
What better represents a snapshot of change, a delta, than a sunset amongst the clouds? Every second, the sun is rapidly descending, the clouds are constantly morphing, and the darkness is steadily expanding.
Sunset walk by a quiet lake, with the breeze blowing in your hair, hills looming in the distance, and the sky filled with silver-lined clouds as far as you can see. A wonderful ambience, and an instant pick-me-up!
