The River at Dusk

Sunday evening, on my own, at Fort Vermilion’s boat launch I witnessed the sun drop below the horizon and the dusky, rich colours and lengthening shadows produced – day’s end in the land of the Midnight Sun. The event recalls (and was perhaps inspired by) redjim99’s poem, his 200th, on his ‘notyethere’ wordpress blog, ‘The Road at Sunset’ and his discussion of the illusion of horizon; accurate and cleanly worked – it is worth checking out.

Listening to – ‘Thank U’ by Alanis Morissette and David Gray’s ‘My Oh My.’

Quote to Inspire – “I am not an artist. I am an image maker.” – Thomas Hoepker

  1. Thanks for the mention. Fantastic sunsets, Peace River and Fort Vermilion, very apt. Colours you could sit and watch for days. I bet it’s a great place to camp.


    • Hey there, Jim:

      The photo is taken from a river-side picnic area, a stone’s throw from the Provincial Court house; a kilometre east is the airport, starting point for six years of bush-flying for my wife and I as teachers.

      Our school division office is a kilometre west from the site, still along the river. Nice job on ‘The Road at Sunset.’ 🙂

    • Hello, hello …

      Thanks for having a look in … and connecting with the Fort Vermilion Sunset/dusk. Definitely a serene couple of moments caught as image. 😉
