Spirals have no end. Our galaxy is a spiral. Love is a spiral.

Long exposure shot while I was walking by night towards
Santiago de Compostela... It was the last day before we
reached the magic city. I'll never forget that moment.

More photos soon. Have a great week! :D

Life is a Spiral

A poem by Peter S. Quinn

We are together
Everywhere it takes us
Getting better and better
As we come across
Life is never easy
In its way and go
Sometimes too much breezy
On its day and show

We are here for life
Trying our heart out
How much is there to strife
As we go here about
Dreams are on their wings
Flowing thru the air
As the wind in leaves sings
Through these days everywhere

Life is a spiral
Through the lights of turning
Keeping the essence adaptable
Forever on its roads burning

You and I to find
All our errors and trials
Leaving closed doors behind
In their blocked up denials
Every road is a spiral
Catching a day unknown
What we dream is achievable
Waiting for us at the horizon

We are together
Everywhere it takes us
Getting better and better
As we come across
Life is never easy
In its way and go
Sometimes too much breezy
On its day and show

Long exposure photography is a wonderful thing.

I love the color here, especially that gorgeous deep blue up at the top... Such a wonderful sky :) And the way it highlights the spiral... great work as always :D

It is a picture that instantly draws attention. The use of flowing light is successful, the sky is well lit. My only nit-picking would be that the possibly blurring effect (the use of filter?) seemingly makes it difficult to focus on, and the vignetting mostly on the left adds to that feeling.

Overall, an intriguing, surreal scene. Well done.

TFS.
