“The spirit in man has been created in accordance with the image of beauty, so that whenever it either hears or sees anything beautiful, it may have a propensity towards it, and seek for communion with it.”

MUHAMMAD AL-GHAZALI, The Alchemy of Happiness

Every time I go out with my camera I hope for the magic that takes an ordinary scene to one that lifts my soul to dizzying heights. A place of reverence. A symphony of light playing its magic on the landscape, creating a moment that sears the mind. A special moment so rare to find, so fleeting and easy to miss. I live for these beautiful moments that reveal something special about the landscape and illuminate feelings deeply buried, they fill me with awe and inspiration. A blue line revealed. For just an instant I feel God’s beautiful breath as it warms my soul, I feel frighteningly alive, changed forever.

  1. .. and so you should Bruce. Stunning!

  2. Nice balance, enjoyable.

  3. Majestic, the power of those dark brooding clouds with slithers of light finding their way through. Truly beautiful.

  4. You are right that the thin blue line makes this

    Im not sure how this works for you but at times I dont even see the magic bit when I capture the image.
    My eye and brain short circuit the concious brain and send a message to the “trigger finger” that I dont even notice. Then at home, in front of the computer, all is revealed. I love those moments
