I was scouting a location to shoot the sunrise the following morning when low clouds rolled in with the full moon.

Been a slow few months. Missed taking photos but the winter has been unseasonably warm and uneventful as far as sunsets go.

Mountains and rivers: flowers of the Tao
But, I, sadly, am a writer
No divine voice, talentless
Yet, lend me a brush; I'm off and running

Better an addiction to sunset clouds
To dispense with this sickness of words
Let wooded springs purify this old heart
Azure clouds burnish the sun red
-- Shih-shu, 18th century CE

The South coast of Devon has been one area that I have been wanting to visit for many months now but it has never come to pass. However the coast line at this time of year is when it's best to visit, strong spring light and an abundance of flora on the cliff edges transform the cliff edges and views beyond. After the sun dropped below the horizon the clouds where illuminated with a pink glow that complimented the thrift in the foreground.

"Stepping Stones"

After heading down to Boulder Beach in Acadia NP, my helpful new friend, David Patterson, was showing me what the lovely park had to offer. The morning was very calm and when we stopped at Bubble Pond the reflections were great! After shooting off to the right side for a bit I came across these 5 rocks arranged in a very eye-pleasing fashion. Luckily the clouds offererd up a dappling of light and the scene came to life. The added ducks on the far rock was a bonus :) B/W version coming tomorrow!

THANKS!

Wild monk, come to make a parting with me.
We sit a while on the sand beside the welling source.
You'll go a long way on that empty alms bowl,
deep among mountains, treading fallen flowers.
Masterless Ch'an, our own understanding?
When you've got it, there's no place for it but a poem.
This parting's nothing fated:
orphan clouds just never settle down.

- Wu Pen, 9th century CE.

The experience I had here really cannot be captured in a picture-poem. With time to kill, we arrived two hours before sunset. Next to us a drum circle, with 20+ people, most playing and some dancing. The atmosphere was simple but rich. We sat on sun-lit rocks. The drummers improvised continuously during the three hours I was there, long complex rhythms. Poetry on all fronts. It's something I will remember for a long time.

Pleasant evening on a beach outside Vancouver.


A frosty bell
Anxiously override the waterclock;
Grieving together,
Dense sorrow dawns.

Guests from the coast
Exchange his enlightened poems;
Monks from these woods
Describe his bearing while ill.
The cleansing spring
Floats a fallen leaf;
On rock concentrations
Chirping crickets assemble.

Turning, I view
Cloud Gate mountain:
Dwindling Sun descends
The distant peak.
- Wei Feng, 10th century CE

"Vogset"

Waves splash up on the rocks as the sun slips deeper in to the vog layer at sunset. This creates a unique opportunity to shoot directly in to the sun without ruining your photo...and create some very cool (natural) color!

Thanks!

Stob Dearg, Glen Coe, Scotland

It's a nice spot, but very overphotographed. So this is some kind of collector shot.
