Seconds Before the Light Went Out by thrumyeye Seconds Before the Light Went Out by thrumyeye
Edit: Now available as Print!
One autumn day, I decided to capture the autumnal splendor in filtered sunlight and I was hoping for some nice fogy atmosphere.
I probably had hoped a little too hard: the fog came rolling in as a huge dark and angry cloud.
Just minutes after I arrived, my fresh and colorful beech forest was about to be devoured by a thick grey layer.
This could certainly have ruined my plan, had I consistently stuck to it.
But just before the cloud ate all my trees, I noticed the last rays of light setting a tree in the spotlight.
That was exactly the magic I had been searching for!
Just seconds later there I was, standing in a toneless forest.
The magic had gone as if it had never been there, but fortunately I had my photos as a sweet remembrance of this gorgeous scene.
And isn't that exactly what photography (and life) is all about.....grabbing that moment...?

Just seeing that fog roll through the trees gives me a sense of impending doom.

this seems a transition mark between winter and autumn, you are now 'here' in autumn, but you already see in the back/coming to us, the winter.
With the leaves all in the floor reinforcing the idea, the end of the fall

Is strange but I feel both cold (the blue mist) and cold (for the warm sensation that the hanged leafs transmits)

I've just had to FORCE myself to stop looking at your incredible photographs. Who knew that foxes could appear so ethereal and imbued with magic.  The Fox and the Fairy Dust. Rain Fox.  The Catcher in the Rime ... and on and on. I can't imagine how you got such shots -- must be a bit of magic involved there, too. And how in the world do you get that kind of bobbly blurry effect in the background.  

Then I started looking at some of your other photos. It was like being in a Cathedral. I was transfixed by Like a Rainbow. Where I live, there are lots of outdoor spiders and webs loaded with dew in the mornings. You can imagine what it is like when there is a freeze. Anyway, the multicolored light refracted through the dew drops were mesmerizing. Thank you. The Sundew and the Damsel Fly, when first enlarged from the thumbnail, almost made me jump back. Whoa!  What a face! A peronage of some importance.  The Bee on a Mission (good title) made me laugh, he looked so terribly determined.  

Last (for now), but not least -- Seconds Before the Lights Went Out was unbelievably lovely. I only wish I had been there to see those leaves flutter in the breeze.  Thank you for so much joy.
