fall in the light




it's mid-october. i see fall around the northern hemisphere, but here we are in a heat wave. 30+ degrees celcius during the day, but no humidity to keep the heat after sunset, so we cool off at night.

the light is different, though. the sun is lower on the sky and takes its time as it moves toward the ocean. long shadows and pastel tones mixed in the golden glow of the setting sun.

----------------------------

sometimes if we're going home and we pass by the sea at sunset, i will drive to the shore and let them watch the magical moment when the water burns. if you ask them where the sun is at night they will tell you it goes to sleep in the ocean. i wonder when they will know that the sun never sleeps. and if they will like that story better.

  5. What gorgeous light and images. I love the story about the sun sleeping in the sea, too. Here it is also mid-heatwave (after a brief spate of snow!) and we're experiencing the summer temperatures with winter light. It's a nice reprieve before winter sets in for real!
