It was just a simple scene but I was fascinated by the ribbon of light shining on this river. As the sun set, it silhouetted the clouds and the mountain in the distance, creating this beautiful, peaceful end to the day.
The simple beauty of this scene reminds me of a quote by the famous twentieth century American Tonalist artist, Birge Harrison. When talking about why artists turn to nature he says, “But precious beyond all other things, her exquisite and ever-varying effects – that happen because of the change from night to day and from day to night again – are spread out always before us, an endless feast of beauty for those who have minds to see and minds to appreciate.”
