Photo Information
"We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.
Through the unknown, remembered gate
When the last of earth left to discover
Is that which was the beginning."

From Little Gidding, The Four Quartets, T.S.Elliot

Thanks so much for all the encouraging comments The TS Elliot quote was reflective as it was the first place that I had gone with (a borrowed) SLR camera to have a go at taking a landscape photo, rather than a whimsical snapshot, a couple of years ago. I realised how much I had learned since that day and how much deeper I had come to understand patience in waiting for the definitive moment to click the button, by tuning into the transient nature of light and shadows… what a gift of light it was.

Great quote to go with another superbly crafted shot
Great simplicity is only won by an intense moment or by years of intelligent effort. T.S Eliot
