Tangerine Dreams and Apricot Kisses CCC6

Crimson’s Creative Challenge #6

An hour before sunset on a hot August day
mists rise, hints of tangerine, apricot kisses
still waters beneath, spread in negative echoes
a leaden flow into mercury pools.

      It truly was a steamy evening. And I waited and waited for the actual sunset. but …. Molten lead and mercury pools. I took nearly a hundred photos in just under an hour, all different views and stages of sunset.

        I’m lucky to live in a magical place. Though I’m sure few who live in Yarmouth would agree on that. The town has every social problem, from high unemployment and transient population to homelessness, drugs and a high rate of teenage pregnancies, not to mention the accompanying health problems. And a short step outside the town, and here is this …. More, within 10 miles there are mist-shrouded marshes, pine snd heather studded heaths, crumbling storm-beaten cliffs , and, of course, the fabulous Norfolk Broads. And even the town has some interesting historic sights.

      • It’s been years since I was last in Yarmouth or the surrounding area, but it’s nice to be reminded of how beautiful a place it is, despite the sadness of its problems. But what place doesn’t have its trouble? 😦

        This is true. It was because of the social problems that, when I left the theatre, I then joined a community-focused project.
