Silhouette (II)

Silhouette (I)

 

In this majestic place
A pristine North
Dusk and dawn becomes one
Bringing deep resonance forth

A lava church of nature
Rising from the seabed
To this I humbly bow
Life’s untouched calm silhouette

    Wow Hanne, I’m stunned, it was worth waiting… the photo is pure beauty, and I absolutely move the poem – and the lines:
    “Dusk and dawn becomes one” & “A lava church of nature”
    Have you been travelling in Iceland? Someobe in my family went to this amazing country in July – Iceland is a paradise for photographers. ah! you’ve made my day 🙂 avec toute mon amitié, F.

    • Frédéric, once again you shower my comment box with such encouraging words, do you ever run out of them?! lol!
      Thank you so much! It’s been a long time coming… !!!
      Yes, I was in Iceland in July too, been there many times. Another place on this blue marble I feel completely and utterly at home. It holds a special energy, I’m never quite the same who leaves as the one that arrives…

        • Hopefully, they are taking a while before they allow me to approach them and there is no other way, I have to honor ‘their request’ and ‘wait’ for their call 🙂
          So, I don’t know if I’m back or if it was just a little window that opened… we’ll see 🙂
          But definitely, regardless, see you around!

    Gorgeous shot. Love how the silhouette is reflected so strongly in the water too. Love your poem too – nature is always so much bigger and extravagant than us. When I look at views like that in real life, sometimes I feel small 🙂

    • Silhouettes and reflections the dream of this photographer and it was like driving through a dream this particularly night… many times the scenery too stunning for me to even take a picture, all I could do was looking at it in silence… but this one, I’m really happy with. It brings me back to that night.
      Small in a beautiful humble way I reckon?
      Thank you much for your visit, Mabel!

        It is good to hear that you allow yourself to enjoy the moment and what’s around you. Nothing beats seeing something with your own eyes. Looking at it through a camera lens, it’s always different in that it looks so much smaller 🙂

        • You are very right, however, when I ‘sense’ a photo, my camera becomes and extension of my eyes in some bizarre way and even add to the feel of the moment.
          Having said that, I find nothing more weird and removing oneself from what is going on, when people go to a concert and watch it through their iphones!! Imagine the artist, not seeing people faces anymore, only their stupid phones, the magic of a show is lost with this. Sorry, that was a stray thought 🙂

            Interesting, the camera adding to the feel of the moment. I like the sound of that and hope to experience that someday with my camera.

            Hahaha! I get what you mean. People just love filming their favourite singers and bands on stage. I am sure they want to capture the moment…and don’t want to miss out on anything 🙂

              Yeah, I do understand why they do it, however I do think that it’s exactly what happens, they miss the moment when it’s the opposite they aim at, even more so, if they simultaneously post to facebook lol

  7. It may have taken you a while to deliver these to our eyes and thoughts, but when you do: you take our senses and make them feel redundant compared with yours!
    Thank you, my queen!

  8. This is a beautiful picture. during our trip in Iceland this summer, it was raining so much the day we were near Kirkjufell that we couldn’t even stop and take a picture. I’m glad I can contemplate yours ! 🙂

    • Thank you so much for this wonderful comment! I’m very happy you I can bring some sunny Iceland to you 🙂
      Iceland is a stunning place.
      I was very lucky on my trip, the sun was out everyday where I went, and only a few drops of rain, whereas I have a very good friend who was there at the same time and got a text from her saying, “if the sun shines where you are, I’ll start screaming now” lol!! Apparently she had same experience as you 🙂
      Thank you much for the follow too, Gin!

      • Yeah, it’s incredible, we met a french family at the end of our trip and they started their trip 2 days before us and they had sun the whole time. We had some sun, but we also had our share of cloudy and rainy days 🙂
