Become a Living Soul…

Nor less, I trust,
To them I may have owed another gift,
Of aspect more sublime; that blessed mood,
In which the burthen of the mystery,
In which the heavy and the weary weight
Of all this unintelligible world,
Is lightenedβ€”that serene and blessed mood,
In which the affections gently lead us onβ€”
Until, the breath of this corporeal frame
And even the motion of our human blood
Almost suspended, we are laid asleep
In body, and become a living soul:
While with an eye made quiet by the power
Of harmony, and the deep power of joy,
We see into the life of things.

Tintern Abbey, William Wordsworth 1798

  1. I find this image exquisite, Helen. For me it’s not serene as it is for smackedpentax, it’s very evocative of emotion. Timeless, yes. I love the way the line of birds seems to echo the shape of the cloud below.

I would love to know what you thought of this article...

Snow has arrived in The Lake District overnight. Dashed out with my new/old camera, a 1977 Hasselblad and shot the tree at the end of my garden. 🌲 #hasselblad #hasselblad500cm #snowfall #LakeDistrict #kodakportra160 That's a wrap Autumn, the last few windy days have blown most of the leaves away. The trees are bare and I'm still doing the snow dance πŸ‚πŸ‚β›„οΈβ›„οΈ #lakedistrict #f2 #fujifilm #fujix100t #autumn #fall Only about 6wks until I fly back into Reykjavik, it will be my third visit to Iceland. It's a Landscape photographers dream location. ⛄️⛄️⛄️ #reykjavik #iceland #church #thingvellir I bought a kayak this summer, I was looking forward to being out on the water watching misty sunrises, beautiful sunsets on the lake, but I didn't factor in gorgeous hidden boathouses.. #LakeDistrict #boathouse #derwentwater #keswick #kayak #perceptionkayaks #fujix100t #fujilove Oh November, where have you been all of my life 🍁🍁🍁🐿 #iphone6 #maple #japanesemaple #red #ruby #autumn #fallforfall #leafpeeping #foliage It was November, the month of crimson sunsets, parting birds, deep, sad hymns of the sea. Passionate wind-songs in the pines...LM Montgomery. 🍁🍁 #fujixt1 #autumn #fall #November #fujilove #f2 #theleafproject #fallforfall
