Autumn is my favourite time of year.
Reggie and I had the day to ourselves, so a wander outside was the order of the day.
I looked up.
And wondered how I could possibly capture just how impossibly blue the sky was today.
Reg and I ambled to the top of the hill in the tank paddock, where I proceeded to lie down in the remnants of last years’ canola and gaze at the blue with out interruption. No trees, buildings, powerlines – just blue. And more blue. It was my entire field of vision.
So vivid, I could touch, taste and smell the blueness of it all. I felt very, very small and yet very connected to life, my life, the life of the universe. Maybe the heat was getting to me.
I tried to capture that feeling and emotion with these images. I am not sure I succeeded. But know that I have not edited or enhanced these images – it was just the bluest sky imaginable. Garden-variety things, things with no aesthetic appeal otherwise, began to look beautiful against this bluest of blue back drops. Colours and shapes seemed to take on a life of their own. I saw beauty in the most simple of patterns and composition.
It really was a beautiful day.
And I was lucky enough to be able to revel in it, immerse myself in it and quite simply enjoy it. No more, no less.
And I got to enjoy it with this little dude. You just don’t get any luckier than that.
Peace out world. xxx
