one hundred and eighty five degrees: ‘salvation in the beauty…’

Troubles Will Be Gone ~ The Tallest Man on Earth

one hundred and eighty five

Seeding fields, of lupin. I fall, in love. With gumboots. And this aching, vastness. Big sky, country. Home, to sheep. And sunset. Graceful beneath, the boughs. As twilight, swoops. On angel, wings. Unveiling, a valley. Of soul bright, stars. That we might, dream. Ourselves, free. And dancing. Beyond, all boundaries. Of distance, and darkness. And existential, fear.


When it’s you I see in headlights, driving down the golden highway…

    It really looks like an oil painting, and deserves to be one. What a great eye you have

  4. Really gorgeous shot. What a bonus to have them and the tree in one frame AND the scene bathed in the coppery rays of the Overburg sunlight. Now why didn’t they co-operate like that for me instead of having me chase them round the fields kicking up clouds of dust? You must be the Sheep Whisperer!

      I *promise* I didn’t Bach them! But I think the trick is wearing gumboots – the sheep seem more trusting when dressed in authentic farm gear. As for the light and timing, pure luck. They stayed long enough for me to steal a photo and then ran, bleating (screaming?) for the hills. Sending so much midnight treacle Overberg starlight to shimmer above the oceans on your side. Lots of love, Bx

      • Wahaaaaaa! Let me guess – your magnetic personality. Aww thanks for the treacle sky. Must ahve worked ‘coz I got home late (worked late), went out to greet and feed the indulged duo and it was pretty chilly but when I looked up at the sky it was amazingly clear – an abundance of stars and I still thought “I’ve gotta learn how to photograph all that splendour”. Big love and hugs and a huge whoose of energy to keep that quill going. xxx
