The Dusk Series,
Wales

Continuing the Dusk Series that I began in Fall 2014 at the MacDowell Colony, in Peterborough, New Hampshire, and continued throughout the winter in Northampton, Massachusetts, these images were taken at dusk in West Wales, in the UK, in May and June, 2015. 

It's hard to wait for dusk in Wales around the Summer Solstice--the sun only sets around 10:30 pm. So I may have rushed some of these. To make up for it, I took photos in places like Ty Canol Wood, in Pembrokeshire--one of the few patches of primeval forest left in Britain--where tree shadows help dusk fall sooner. To my mind, the dusk images capture the neon-green glow and feel of Ty Canol better than the tradition photo below.


I discovered from a friend, Judy White, that in Celtic cosmology, the new day began at dusk. I like that. Consider this series a new departure...

Thanks for looking.
