the dying of the light



It's this time of year that always reminds me just how important light is to life, to happiness, to well-being. I cannot imagine what life was like before the advent of electricity, when the dying of the light was a profound, real and inescapable part of every day.

Stunnning light Mary. Love your angle you captured this light at .
Even in the light of the leaves getting ready for winter they show so much beauty and the sun has a warm glow to it...Have a blessed day.

So pretty. (I'm with you on the light! I don't even like the shorter daylight hours in winter. I crave sunlight!)
