This is near where I grew up in a pastoral land in the gallant South, a place called Goochland, Virginia that was like Shangri-La to me, but was lost over half of my life ago as my family scattered across the continent and over many impasses that still sit there, like a gaping hole.
This makes me sad, nostalgic, dreamy and out of proportion to reality. This is the place I will always call home.
This shot is simply stunning and dramatic in a way that shows us how earth or nature or the atmosphere or elemental particles or light and air or even what we call God has a sense of the spectacular and is in love with beauty. Who says the earth is not alive? This other-worldly shot is just that — from the ‘other world’ of mystery, majesty and beautiful things to see, we capture this — a sky painting.
Please check out this photographer’s other photos sometime — exquisite. Inspiring. I would once like to see these lights with my own eyes, not through the lens in front of me. This is wonder, this is bliss, this is blithely dancing across indigo air.
Classic theme songs from shows like the A-Team, Adam-12 and the Andy Griffith Show. Looks like we only got through the As, but a good resource, maybe, for this filmmic reality site you see before you now.
