Forms change

Here are some photos from time spent in nature last weekend and words of upliftment and encouragement.

All that you can see has its roots in the unseen.
Forms change; essence remains.
Every sight will vanish, however gorgeous.
Every word will fade, however sweet.
But be strong of heart!
Where they come from is everlasting.
And renewing.   Rumi

Light and shadow

Both light and shadow are the
dance of love.

-Rumi

I have been playing with light more as I go about with my camera and realising that a slightly different angle on an adjacent object can offer up very different results.

Wherever there is light there is also shadow and in these two photos taken last week in warmer autumn sunshine I was surprised to see that a subtle shift of the camera gave me a very different picture with the shadows defined as strongly as the light.

Here is the first photo I made as I enjoyed the light on this highly patterned ice plant.

And then the subtle shift to this. I love the strong shadows and the quote from Rumi above seemed apt for this revelation.
