BRIGHT HORIZONS

HORIZON – THE SKY ABOVE THE LINE OF THE EARTH


My favorite horizon is sunrise, but sunset is pretty good too. Anywhere where the sky meets the earth is a horizon. Clear away the buildings and the trees, and there it is.

ON THE HORIZON

A Photo a Week Challenge: Horizon


From Nancy Merrill comes a challenge:

In a new post, created for this challenge, share a photo or two of horizons. 


I do mostly landscapes … so … horizons are us. But which shall it be? So hard to choose!

It’s hard to beat the horizons under the big sky of the southwest. There’s just something about the vastness of the spaces and that great dome of sky that goes on forever.

WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: HORIZON OVER BOSTON

75-Boston_New_07

Into the infinite distance, this is Boston from Mission Hill looking across Fenway Park to the Blue Hills in the distance.

WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: HORIZON – WOODCLEFT CANAL

96-WoodcleftSunset-HDR-CR-10

Looking down the canal, the horizon lurks about the tops of the boats, the docks, the buildings that line the waterway. The horizon is implied, not entirely visible … but you know where it is. Everything points to it.

WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: HORIZON ON THE ATLANTIC

75-SunsetZS-NK-19-25

Nowhere can one see the pure horizon more than on the sea. Twilight, just before sunset, from Barnstable beach. The boats sit peacefully at anchor as the light fades beautifully from the sky. The horizon goes on forever.
