Life, photos but not the universe

Let there be Light.

I’ve just read a rather nice book by Margaret Elphinstone*, called Light.   Appropriately enough, it’s about a lighthouse keeper and her family.  Anyway, I was pleased to discover that she (Margaret Elphinstone) has written quite a number of books recently since I was very taken with The Incomer, which I read long ago and have kept for regular re-reading.

I failed as usual, to get up with the sun this morning (even though it gets up quite late these days)  but it’s still there so I shall go out shortly.

Later, it went behind clouds

hid behind trees

and came out again

It’s all about light.

*Could that really be her name?  It’s rather nice – a bit tolkienesque.

  1. oh, the light! in those photos, is just beautiful

    so beautiful*

    (*I use that word far too much!! need to widen my vocabulary)

    I especially like the chesnuts on the ground in the last photo, great texture – altho I also really really like the wonky gate and the fence on the other side of the path

    and looking down the side panel at the other photos in this set is like taking a walk in the woods!




    Efulgent? (I’m really not sure exactly what that means but it’s definitely been applied to light in at least one literary work I’ve read)
    I like sumptuous though – thank you Inukshuk : )
