the silence of silence

Communication when there is is silence can be more effective than spoken words. Its what is not said that is often what is the most important.

Sunsets in the country are quite a different beast, especially when the landscape is quite flat, one moment the world is bathed in golden light then the next its a pastel wonderland, followed by a inky blackness devoid of cultural lighting (thats not a bad thing either πŸ™‚ ). In the summer months by the sea sunrise is quite prolonged, or at least it feels that way, giving one the opportunity to take in different compositions and savour the moment, in alot of way I prefer the fast setting sun, it forces one to really focus on the task at hand, a skill that should be used across the board in life πŸ˜‰ (says he who just sat and procrastinated in from of the TV with a pizza;) )

Cheers to +David Brodrick for being my chauffeur the night before allowing me to scope out some of these locations.

I had pulled up here on the dirt road after spotting this lonely tree standing amongst the bean plants and it was just about the perfect tree, it could have grown on the top of the hill, however lets not complain too much πŸ˜‰ As i got out of the car there was no movement save for several kangaroos off in the distance getting a free feed on the beans, the silence was pretty well deafening, except for the calls of a small birds it was like being in a empty music / radio studio.

So after a trek up into the field across some snake infested thigh high grass, i set up and watched the sun go down over horizon off to the right, out here, crouched in the bean plants…..

…. the world seemed to be a better place.

  1. Thanks +Liz C – i did not see any snakes, but there was plenty of suspicious rustling, its also hibernation time (technically semi-hibernation state called torpor) for them so hopefully not too many around πŸ™‚
