Skywatch Friday: A Dissolution

IMG 5873

Here is a view of Silver Sands State Park that I captured on Sunday. It was a bright and beautiful day. Through my polarized eyeglasses and with the aid of my thick-gloved, fumbling fingers, I photographed what I saw, somehow. It seems to me February and March are the months of deep blues and platinum light. Approaching the beach Sunday, it seemed to me that a great vial of sunlight had been poured onto the surface of Long Island Sound and seemed to beckon spring. The air was light and warm despite the wind. In fact, it seemed the wind alone claimed our fingers and toes for winter as the sunlight claimed the rest of us for spring. We kept moving; the light that dissolved around us was very good.

  3. You do always have such beautiful descriptions and they always help me to see the beauty even when I'm immersed in "wintery grumbles"! Thank you as always for pointing out the beauty so I don't miss it! Have a great day and a lovely weekend!

  4. Beautiful post. Soon we will take back fingers and toes....spring here is so volatile, one minute quiet and so beautiful, the next who knows? Usually windy! A lot of energy....

  18. This is a great shot and exactly how one would see it on a cold winter day which is very short.

    I am shivering all day at my house It is unusually cold outside and tomorrow they say minus 17. Soccer was canceled. So much for BC weather. lol

  19. It's almost a monochromatic picture, very nice, with that pale blue of the sky.

  20. I was just thinking about that poetic line "The fog comes on little cat feet." So does spring? Have to use all five senses to experience the signs of spring===in this case touch.

    Platinum is a good description. It sounds so much nicer than gray, that I think better of winter and its stormy skies already.

  24. Platinum is a good word for the color of this shot. Why is this monochromatic world so mesmerizing? Those tree look as fine as filigree against that silver sky!

  25. You have such a way with words. You have captured the tension between Spring and Winter perfectly for me.

  28. Wow, Sandy, this is such a wonderful paragraph.
    And that photo.

    I appreciate all of the seasons.
    But I cannot wait for spring.

  29. Beautiful sentiments. I agree with you on the light, as the sun moves higher in the sky, the light turns from golden to platinum, that is my impression too.;)
    Love the gentle melancholy in your image.
