100 Days Of Observing Divine Beauty

All Days | Day by Day | Author Login

At the end of 2015 my wife Wendy and I embarked on a mid-life adventure - moving to Europe from NZ. For my 100 days project I plan to post pictures, captions and quotes, reflecting the beauty I have discovered here in my new home. Sometimes the photos will be new. Other days I may curate a moment, a day, or a theme from pictures taken over the past 18 months. My project is inspired by John O'Donoghue's "Divine Beauty", a book which speaks of the secret wisdom of creation expressed in the ever present beauty that surrounds us. - Alastair Thompson 22nd May 2017

Day 3


[ Today's Album >> http://bit.ly/BeautyDay3 ] "Light is always more fragile at a threshold. An island is an edged place, a tense threshold between ocean and sky, between land and light. The collusion of cloud, rain, light and landscape is always surprising. Within the space of one morning, a while sequence of different landscapes can appear outside the window." – John O'Donohue "Divine Beauty"
