Impossible Textures of the Sea / Light Fizzles


On the last day of 2017, the impossible textures of the sea

.

.

A full moon emerges

rises, observes

.

.

Constant flux underfoot, new paths

.

 

Sustaining coastal energies, wind, sea spray

changing colours of the tide

 

 

Cloud and sea  – a mirrored

chiaroscuro dissolving

the lip of land

 

 

Grounded exhalation

.

.

silhouettes of breath

etched on the gloaming

A week earlier – 26.12.2017

 

Bookends of light

fizzle into folds of darkness

 

 

Half a silver lozenge, to pluck from the sky

 

.

We leave it to the nightwatch(er)

Taken from a series of short walks around the West Fife coast during the last week of 2017. Putting this together left an initial conundrum. How did I photograph a full looking moon and half moon less than a week apart?  I posted the question on Twitter and thanks to Portals of London (@portalsoflondon), Jennie Murray (@lithgaelark) and MAW Holmes (@MAW_H) for the clarification. Basically I had taken a cycle at 29.5 days and halved it instead of taken a quarter to move from half to full. (new – half – full – half – new).  However, possibly preferred Paul Kenny’s (@jmarmaduke) answer of alchemy.
