Gloaming Aune

by morpheus71

“Now fades the glimmering landscape on the sight, And all the air a solemn stillness holds, Save where the beetle wheels his droning flight, And drowsy tinklings lull the distant folds.”

Thomas Gray

Twilight falls upon the waters of the River Aune on an autumn evening

Many thanks for your enthusiasm Maria I have been visiting bits of this river almost weekly this year, curious to explore its inner landscapes especially. I was quickly struck by this intriguing set of elements, shapes, hues and textures.

Sometimes I don't get so lucky with light sympathetic to my ideas, but ideas abound the more I get a little further acquainted with sections of the river and the desire to return is ensured.

"To know fully even one field or one land is a lifetime's experience. In the world of poetic experience it is depth that counts, not width. A gap in a hedge, a smooth rock surfacing a narrow lane, a view of a woody meadow, the stream at the junction of four small fields - these are as much as a man can fully experience."

Many thanks for your encouraging comment Andrew From the high moors to the coast it is a river that I remain beguiled by. There is much character in the waters, delightful old trees ensconce much of its mossy & fern festooned banks and the heady scents of wildflowers in the spring. Autumn's cloak offers a glorious quiet fanfare to this vale.

Thanks very much Malc I am easily wooed by converging flow patterns and river islands... with fiery leaves the muses had me in a spell. A dash of ambient blue sky light descending from above, remnants of the civil twilight, the rocks and rapids seemed charmingly lit against the dark deeper shaded waters. A hint of chiaroscuro maybe?

Superb once again, I like these little sections of the flow rather than the whole scene.
