Vesper Light

"Vesper Light" by Eric Rennie

Medieval monks sanctified time by setting aside specified periods during the day for prayer, which they called the daily offices.  In much the same way, landscape photographers are attuned to the advance of light and darkness in the natural world, since that is their subject. Their world is not cloistered, and there are usually no bells to summon him to prayer.  But at its best, their work becomes a form of prayer, only they sanctify light rather than time as such.  Much of my work is done at first light, a period the monks would call prime.  Here I am working at the other end of the day, during the period the monks refer to as vespers
