Evening’s Glow

It was pretty much dark in Bower Woods when I made this image. It was dead calm allowing for a 30 second exposure and the leaves didn’t move! Late light like this has a special quality you don’t get a chance to see when it’s bright out or on a sunny day. Colours seem to glow in a special way.


We see thee when the moon’s soft silvery beam

Succeeds the glowing sun in yonder sky;

And the calm evening, peaceful and serene

Quiets the heart and gladdeneth the eye.

When all is hushed, but the low murmuring rill,

When all is calm around, beneath, on high,

And the great Master’s mandate —“Peace be still,”

Seems to pervade the earth, air, sea and sky,

Whilst evening shadows deepen into the night,

And golden stars look down from heaven’s height.
