A photo is worth a thousand words, but sometimes the picture is not complete without engagement of the other senses. Photographs are wonderful for capturing a serene sunset, or for trying to convey the beauty of Lake Superior’s icy shore as the sky turns that soft purple hue in the moments between sunset and darkness.
I have been craving time outdoors, even with bitter cold temps and lack of substantial snow cover. I need those periodic breaks to just hike with my own thoughts and my favorite companion by my side.
The hours in the day are never enough, so the gradually lengthening days are a welcome change, providing more opportunity to head out after work before the sun sets, and enjoy the waning light…. even if it’s not a proper hike. Sometimes, a little is better than nothing ….
We stretched our legs, stopping at various points along the shore to soak in the changing light at the end of the day, jogging to another spot to watch the waves roll over and burst against the shore. The sky changed from purple to blue on the eastern horizon, while looking westward where the sun sank from view, the sky held on to its golden glow.
The still images capture part of the Lake’s allure, but something is missing. Sometimes you need to hear the waves …. sometimes you need to watch the magic hue of fading light as it dances across the water ….
