Winter Twilight

Last Friday I fulfilled a longstanding desire to visit my beloved Ringsend park during the twilight hours. I wanted to capture on camera the memory I have carried since childhood of a silhouetted church steeple against a skyline bathed in pink light. I would not be disappointed.

As I strolled through the park aware of the many changes made over the years (extended enclosed playground, a new all-weather floodlit football pitch, the planting of numerous trees) I felt totally at peace, not fearful of being alone as if this is where I truly belong, a place I shall frequent when my soul passes on. Ringsend is my spiritual home.

The above image is my memory projected onto the page for all to see. Isn't that wonderful! Despite the raindrops on the lens and I not having adjusted the exposure compensation function I'm still pleased with the resulting heavenly scene.




  1. Thank you so much. It was a wonderful experience just watching it.

  2. Hello Anne, I read your posts with great interest, sorry you've had a torrid time, the pics are wonderful [you little tomboy] :)

  3. Oh! thank you so much. That pic has a very calming effect on me especially during times when I find myself longing for my old dwelling. I've been exploring your pages also and I'm completely in awe of your beautiful poetry and drawings.
