Weekly photo challenge: Half-light (morning and night)



Half-light

Morning half-light

Half-light is the theme for this week’s photo challengeKrista asks us to:

share a photo inspired by a poem, verse, song lyric or story. If you’re not feeling especially literary or musical this week, see if you can capture the beauty of morning or evening half-light in your corner of the globe.

In regards to a poem or lyric that inspired these photos, I thought of The Ode.  The Ode actually comes from For the Fallen, a poem by the English poet and writer Laurence Binyon. It was published in London in 1914. The verse used is the fourth stanza and became the League Ode, and it’s been  used in association with commemoration services in Australia since 1921.

“They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old;
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.”

Evening half-light

I hope it’s OK for me to use these words in this context – they are very powerful and I don’t mean to use them lightly or to be disrespectful.

My two photos show the half-light of sunrise as I return home from my early morning walk/run and the half-light of the sunset through the trees in the forest when out on my evening stroll.  I’m so lucky to see these sights almost daily and I never take them for granted.

I hope I have at least managed to  capture the beauty of morning or evening half-light in my corner of the globe.

    • Thanks Desleyjane, I love it and it is so emotional but in reality it started life as just a poem – we have made it into something far more and given it the connection fr our Remembrance ceremonies. It did feel a bit wrong t use it out of its usual context but I kept telling myself that it is a first and foremost a poem that someone wrote to share. Always love getting your comments and support.x
