The Sunset of Life

I venerate old age; and I love not the man who can look without emotion upon the sunset of life, when the dusk of evening begins to gather over the watery eye, and the shadows of twilight grow broader and deeper upon the understanding.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

unbelievable shot .... nothing can stop you even the disability .
I relate so well to this photo. I am 74 years old and partially disabled. I have seen many beautiful subsets in different parts of the world and have several thousand images stored away. This one is special. None of mine compare.

"Today I can see the sunset again,
Again I managed to reach the end
Less luck they had, how many of them
I don't know, I didn't even count..."

Great pic!

so emotional and dramatic. i can't remember seeing someone in a wheelchair as a model before. thats so cool.
This is a very beautiful shot, both visually and emotionally. I've never seen a sunset shot with this much impact on me...I love it.

the picture hast been featured in my journal [link]
unfortunately the sunset of life is rarely as beautiful as the sunset of the day - if only it were so stunningly beautiful - God's plan is to let old age beat us with so much infirmity and pain that we release life with a sigh of relief - the lucky man dies in his sleep and knows not the truth of death

still , it's a great image !
