Sometimes Crescent, Sometimes Full
23-JUL-2011 OTIS

Sometimes Crescent, Sometimes Full

Rise up nimbly and go on your strange journey
to the ocean of meanings.
The Stream knows it can't stay on the Mountain.
Leave and don't look away from the sun as you go
in whose light you're sometimes crescent, sometimes full.
-Rumi translated by Colman Books

I have to say --I'm a fan of black. On my monitor, the black area does have some strange going on's. It's no totally black. The horizon line is great. It's not totally a line of trees but has different trees and shapes that make it interesting. I'm also a big fan of graceful curves. Very appealing. --skunk

It's not your monitor - it's way too dark here too. Almost solid black.
I agree tho, mysterious and deep.

A gorgeous image, and mysterious. The dark area is a bit too dark on my monitor--possibly because I'm still learning to live with my new graphics card; I would like more detail there, maybe.
