Changing Light

It's rare. To find a place where you feel just right. I've been to this place on Lake Mulwala in Southern Australia many times. I explore the edge of the lake and it's major tributary but I always end up on the northern bank looking across the lake to the twin towns to the west. The water is calmer there and you've got a perfect line of sight to the sunset. There is a lot of bird life, ranging from a family of black swans I've seen every visit to pelicans and a lot of smaller varieties I wouldn't consider trying to identify.

In this particular day the cloud was low and thick and I didn't expect to get much. I figured it would be a chance to get some practice, listen to the cricket on the radio and generally decompress. It was my last day away before returning to work and I was in a good mood having had some time off to travel and visit family. My little place by the river didn't seem like it was going to deliver much but that was ok. I was comfortable & relaxed.

The camera was set on a tripod by the water and I'd taken a few practice shots. As I did the light began to change. A small degree of waning sunshine crept through a few breaks in the cloud. Grey became silver, silver became light blue, light blue morphed into orange, orange transformed to red and red finally pushed on to purple before the darkness won the day. Over that period my comfort and relaxation went through it's own transformation. I became intrigued at the change, then energised, then pumped. Nature was putting on a show in my little slice of nirvana.

That half hour or so reminded me that change is often great. Being in your comfort zone is ok, but change also needs to be embraced. If nature can change like it did it front of me that evening, why shouldn't we when the opportunity presents. It just might be spectacular.
