Keep your faith in the invisible light

We were late. Was it possible to complete the walk around the lake before nightfall?
We can turn around if necessary, I said. Thus encouraged, we started the walk that’s cherished by so many people. Whether it’s because of the wren that jumps around in the undergrowth, the sheep on the meadow, the soft call of the bullfinch, hovering buzzards, squealing ducks or the blue flash of the kingfisher, I do not know.
But one thing is certain, people love the area and so do I.

The eastern light our spires touch at morning,
The light that slants upon our western doors at evening,
The twilight over stagnant pools at batflight,
Moon light and star light, owl and moth light,
Glow-worm glowlight on a grassblade.
O Light Invisible, we worship Thee!

T.S. Eliot

Keep your faith in beautiful things;
in the sun when it is hidden,
in the Spring when it is gone.

    1. Hi Montucky. The trail winds and meanders through many landscapes though the tour is relatively short. At the same time, it is possible to extend the hike through ancient forest and along the lake shore. Thanks a lot for comment!!

  1. What would we do without light in photography? A beautiful winter photo set and perfect with the words by T.S. Eliot and Roy R. Gibson. I love walks in the nature still in winter to enjoy the colours and special mood.
    Yes, let us celebrate the soon return of Spring, Hanna 🙂

    1. You are most kind, Stefan, thank you. After finishing my post I heard the weather forecast for next week. Perhaps there is snow on the way to Denmark –
      The comforting thought is that the snow will not last for too long, now that we celebrate Candlemas.
      All the best,
      Hanna

  2. I am running out of adjectives to describe your photos, Hanna — but these literally made me hold my breath. Thank you for this beautiful ode to light (and to hope). xx

    1. Haha! You always get the details, Alen! But you know sometimes walking is so magical that I look for The Hatter 🙂

  3. That would be awesome. On the other hand I once met Mark Cavendish in the forest I might as well meet The Hatter in shape of Johnny Depp 🙂
