Tonight I went to the top of my hill and lit a beacon just before midnight…
Wonderous “Simmer Dim”, stillness
and serenity.

This shot accompanies “Signals”, the poem.

    Is that the Shetland sky at midnight? Amazing! You could warm your hands on that lamp it looks so comforting

  • Thank you, j :)))

    Yes, this is our sky on 60N at the moment. But no, I didn’t need to, for it was a very mild one :)))

    What a great idea … I love being in the far north of the country and going for a walk at midnight.

  • Thank you, Jen :)))
    You can actually walk throught the night – full light by 3 a.m. [and caught the sunrise too by the way. It was “colourful” :)))

    Love this one! What a great mood you’ve captured!

  • Thank you, Alison :)))
    It has a warmth. Now, a friend of mine in Canada wishes to use its “twin” [same shot with juxtaposed verse] for either magazine cover or website banner…. Not sure which yet.
