Serenity Sunday: Minong Morning

During a family reunion last summer near Minong (MY-nong), Wisconsin, I volunteered to lead those few who chose to arise before breakfast on early hikes through the woods.  On the second day, exploring a new trail, a ray of sun broke through the clouds and provided a drop of golden light in the lovely, dark woods.  It lasted only a moment.

  1. With that shaft of light shining through, it looks like a little fairy’s glen where they gather to dance. Ok, so my imagination is in overdrive today. :) LOL

    It would have been hard leaving there, except of course for getting too cold just standing!

    That´s just the sort of place i´d like to be-great shot!

      I felt the glow during the rest of the day and returned again the following morning to have another look, but it was a clear sky. Everything was bright and sunny and the whole mood was completely different. Not unpleasant at all, but the special enchantment was just not there. It really is all about light, isn’t it?

    Beautiful moment, beautifully captured.

      There really is something special about that really low first and last light of the day and what it can do to otherwise ordinary things. Thanks again, Louis!

    That’s very nice, Gary! The general underexposure of the shot gives a very real feeling of being in a dense, shady woodland >>> and then that wonderful ray of sunlight hits the grass and sets the whole thing off! Excellent! Adrian

      It really was a moment frozen in time, although it was very brief. The whole character of the scene changed within minutes. I was delighted to have been ready for it.

  7. Gary, this is a superb image!!! The light is so beautiful, and it makes me think of a children’s story

      Thanks, Alicia, great to see you back again. If I’d had the time, I would have loved to return with my guitar and see if I could start a new song. I did return the following morning, but the light had all changed. It may yet appear in a future composition…
