A Light Moment


Searchlight : After the Rain

On some evenings there are moments which are sheer drama : fleeting and spectacular, they leave you with a sense of having been a part of some celestial phenomenon. It is a matter of timing; you have to be on the spot, and it has to be one of those 'happening' days.


Soul Searching

The second picture is about evenings when nothing happens. Nothing, that is, other than the daily marvel of day turing into night. The silence lingers as the world slows down, and the pensive soul can gather its thoughts and feel the presence of another, deeper, silence within. These are moments in time and yet out of time, for time itself seems to stand still, and the moment can last forever in a memory.

I think the first picture is one of those special views that we normally come across when the camera is left behind... I'm just so glad you had yours there.
