“Out of Darkness”

“Out of Darkness”

“We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light.”
― Plato

This is the fifth and final image from my “God-light” series.

On that most wonderful day, where the sun and leaves provided me with a brilliant show of light and colour, I emerged from a darker part of the forest into what was to be the final bright patch of light. Around the bend the path drops, into a cedar grove, where the leaves are not as bright, the sun is filtered and only a few bright yellow cedar boughs litter the mostly green pathway. That’s the nature and diversity of the forest, always revealing something new around the next bend or beyond the next hill.

If the forecasts are correct, there will be a few more mild days but I’m afraid all that remains will pale in comparison to the experience I had a few brief days ago, stored in my memories and documented in five photos. That said, I was surprised by this show of light and hope to be blessed by another, slightly different experience.
