“We are attendants to the light” – Les Bartlett
Married and living in Lanesville, with an ocean kayak, putting in at Lanes Cove…often.
And then there was a single moment at twilight, headed out into Ipswich Bay when this occurred: water level.
The Lanes Cove Cemetery fascinates me because all the headstones face west. Not east!
I’m taking a brief break from the ‘Yearning and Longing,’ series to interject this 2 panel of Lanes Cove Breakwater with the current sea smoke.
Although the sea smoke is no match for what we experienced in 2004, it is still a strong background comment upon the broken up breakwater.
And the -6° with wind chill was enough to take my fully charged camera battery down in about 10 minutes. [click on the 2 panels to get a larger view.]
This panorama is viewed at sunset. There is an eerie quality which results from the break in the wall. A horizon line which is always ‘just there,’ in our vision, is distended, broken. And we look back onto Hog Island and the Ipswich coast, which now seem so close at hand. The backlighting at sunset also contributes to the far as close phenomena.
