ARCHIVE 69 – DUSK ON THE DUNES (MONO)

mmm

Dusk on the sand dunes along Sand Bay, north of Weston-super-Mare, Somerset; March 2007.

The tree has been bowed over by years of the westerly winds that batter this coast.   It resembles tangled plumes of smoke erupting from the ground into the teeth of a wild gale, which immediately sweeps them off in tatters to leeward.

This image was a part of my first FATman Photos post, nearly three years ago.  Time really rushes by.

About Adrian Lewis
Photographer working in monochrome, colour and combinations of the two - with a great liking for all sorts of images, including Minimalism, landscapes, abstracts, soft colour, people, movement, nature - I like to be adventurous in my photography, trying new ideas and working in many genres. And I'm fond of Full English Breakfasts and Duvel golden ale, though not necessarily together.

    Ah – it’s my Wuthering Heights lady 😉 (I might stop using emoticons now WP has changed them – they look a bit old-fashioned to me for some reason).

    This tree really tells a story… we should listen to the trees stories more often. I do that when I feel that they have something to tell me (and they always have something to say). I often listen to trees and they are very wise. And they are also very good listeners themselves.

    This is image is a stunning image, my friend. I have three words for this; strength, wisdom and ancient power!

      To me, Malin, the first paragraph of your Comment is both wonderful and profound – it is quintessentially you, and it is certainly something worth putting aside and keeping, as something of real worth in Life. Thank you! 🙂

      I’m glad that you like the image – and I agree with your three words. Adrian

        Thank you for your kind words, Adrian.

        I think many people today don’t have the time to listen to what Nature has to say. People can also say that it’s ridiculous to do such things, listening to trees… “Rubbish” according to some people. But, I don’t care about people who says those things.

          Yes, I agree, many don’t listen to Nature, it has become sidelined and bypassed for many – something strange, dirty and even dangerous – and so some UK parents no longer like their children playing in the garden – getting their hands dirty!

          And one thing that blogging has taught me is that we’re all different, everyone is different – which is a very good thing >>> because if we all believed in and liked exactly the same things, what a drab place this world would be! So, if some people don’t believe in trees’ voices, well, they don’t – but their lack of belief does absolutely nothing to discredit our beliefs. A 🙂

            Wisely said about our differences, Adrian. And I completely agree with you. 🙂

            About UK parents (I think it’s like this all over the world, and not only in the UK) not letting their children play in the garden, that’s just so sad.
