The Eternal Flow of Things



"Gently -- so have good men taught --
Gently, and without grief, the old shall glide
Into the new; the eternal flow of things..."

It's quite nice indeed... very good work.

I agree with the others. This is simply magical. It looks as if there should be a princess on a white horse walking through the mist. Or fairies flitting about.
Out of the ball park on this one, Mary.

Very beautiful and painterly. I appreciated the quote as well since I attended William Cullen Bryant Junior High School. I don't remember ever reading a word of his poetry though, of course.

Mary said...

I am stunned! You certainly have an eye for a beautiful composition. I can only imagine how you felt when you captured it. More!

Are you kidding me? Is this a photo? It looks like a beautiful renaissance oil painting.

Light and Voices said...

Renaissance is your style. Grab that camera and keep on learning how to duplicate this in other shots. Eternal Flow of Things is an excellent title. Frame it! Show it off in your home or sell it.
