The curfew tolls the knell of parting day,
The lowing herd wind slowly o’er the lea,
The plowman homeward plods his weary way,
And leaves the world to darkness, and to me.
~ from “Elegy Written In A Country Churchyard” by Thomas Gray
The bells of Sts. Peter and Paul rang 7:00 as the sun faded and doves flew in slow circles against the clouds, bringing this favorite old poem to mind.
Sometimes I like to photograph the effect of the sunset on the surrounding landscape rather than the sunset itself.. . . . . . .
