…Sing us a song
A song to keep us warm
There is such a chill,
Such a chill… [link]


I’m taking you back with me to my little island once again for another rocky sunset… and another story!
:iconeeeeeplz: yeah, I know, just skip ;p

This shot was taken in December (12/12/2008 to be exact). Best thing about December is that sunsets take place really early so the only thing I have to do on a day that looks promising is just hang around a bit more at school and pick one of the beaches so close to it for a sunset session. That’s exactly what I did on that day and I revisited the old port, the place where Under the Red was shot just a day before. I had already composed, set my camera on the tripod and was preparing to mount my filters when I heard a voice coming from the sea, right below me “Hello Missy!” Gave me such a start I almost dropped the whole set of filters, camera included, into the sea! I mean the place is kind of deserted this time of the year but a voice from behind me or next to me would be expected. Τhis was definitely coming from the sea and it was way toο heavy to be that of a mermaid and it was way too early in December to assume it belonged to Santa (not so sure I’d been such a good girl anyways)!

Turned out it was a diver whose spear gun had broken and he asked me if I could bring him some sort of spare from his truck. I obliged and he sat there, right into my frame trying to fix it and I helped him not because I’m nice but because I wanted him out as soon as possible! Maybe he would have looked nice as a figure in his black underwater suit with his spear gun but I definitely wasn’t gonna ask him to stand perfectly still for a whole minute in case he shot me with it! Anyway, soon he left (made quite a noisy/splashy exit too) and I was able to take my long exposure shot wishing he wouldn’t catch a humongous fish and pop right into my frame asking me to take a picture of him with his catch.

Well… he didn’t!

Liquid shadows crawl
Orange vistas roll
The dark subsides to their arrival
They sublime my sight
And appease my fright
Contributing to my survival ...
