A twilight relief of shadow and light
This is one of my favorite pics yet, highlighting the stark beauty of subtle shadows at twilight. Look at the grass in the foreground: lit and shaded at the same time, every stalk in artistry... then the soft shadows across the contoured swales, converging lines leading to distance and clouds -- each in its own relief of shadow and light and color!
This really is a natural cathedral -- all elements in beauty, foreground to vaulted sky, a heavenward pull: the upward drawing and soaring effect that many human cathedrals try to imitate, with varying success...
