Sunset, Sunrise

Dents de Morcle, VS, Switzerland - Sept. 19, 2014

I know, one usually writes sunrise, sunset, but sometimes the beauty of the order is that it can be reversed: this is how it happened for the above three pictures.

One follows the other in any case, in a never-ending process visible from anywhere in the world: some are beautiful, some ugly, both exist; we only have to notice.

There is a certain comfort in the thought that we are so finite, that something larger than ourselves, an order from the chaos, does continue in a never-ending cycle, regardless of our presence.

I still miss you little sister!
