Clouds at Twilight

Clouds at Dusk, originally uploaded by angryparsnip.

Monsoons are back. . . These clouds, toward the North-East, were taken
on Monday evening. The rain storm is on the bottom left.

I love the Twilight hour. Everything gets that soft lavender glow and
it gets really quiet right before it turns dark, you can almost hear
the earth sigh before evening starts.
I just read about a twilight term called " The time between dog and
wolf " it seem when twilight comes you can't tell one from another,
I think this is so true.

A pensive . . . . parsnip
Music. . . Passing By. . . Ulrich Schnauss
Far Away Trains Passing By, is one of my all time favorite albums. . .
both disks


  1. 'Just a song at twilight,
    When the lights are low,
    And the twisting shadows,
    Seem to come and go.'
    Do you remember that old song?

  2. PI...
    Yes I remember that song, love it . . . I always think Hoagy Carmichael sang it but. . .
    I know he wrote and sang Stardust, Georgia On My Mind and Heart and Soul and was in all the movies from the 40's and 50's
    I think the French, you would know better than me, have a saying. . .L'Hevre Bleue. . . sounds so beautiful and a perfume is named that too but I have never found it.

  3. I loved Hoagy's 'Buttermilk sky'
    Guerlain's L'heure bleu was my friend Diana's mother's perfume and we once helped ourselves to a squirt and I felt so guilty afterwards.

  4. This photograph is making me think, 'Caravaggio': it's so beautiful and sultry.

  5. PI. . .
    Do you remember what the perfume smell like ? I have always wanted to know. . . maybe Violets ?

    Eryl. . .
    It is a different sky and I wish I could have captured it better.

  6. Looks like you've captured it perfectly to me.
