Return To Light.

As we enter the fifth month, we also return to the time of light. The fifth day in the fifth month is perpetually special in my perception, as it is signifies the commencement of the White Nights in Scandinavia.

If I ever would leave the cold North, the light of the summer nights is what I will miss the most. The magic of the endless sunsets never seizes to captivate me, reinforcing my belief in the importance of the sun and the enchantment of the seasonal changes.

Below is a selection of our recent evening skies, depicting the celestial shows that once again take place in my views, making me marvel over natural wonders - and helping me heal as I slowly return to light within as well...

Your pictures, needless to say, capture the moments perfectly for us. I am glad that the light of nature is helping another nature's creation (Zuzana) to return to the light that is within her.

Joy always,
Susan

I remember standing in awe in our Swedish garden just gazing at the beautiful sky transfixed in the summer evenings. So special. I do miss that.
Wishing you lots of sunshine coming your way in the days to come.

You know how to describe our danish light perfectly and it is the main attraction of this country.

LadyCat said...

These sunsets are magnificent. There is so much beauty in nature for us to enjoy. May the light continue to enchant and heal you : )

ladyfi said...

Ah, the magical light of a Scandinavian spring is so well captured here. These shots are serene and stunning!

I LOVE this time of year for the same reason except that I am able to catch the brilliant sunrises - like you I marvel at the beauty and majesty of it all. These pictures are just brilliant and fantastic and stunning! And may you continue to heal my friend... :) xoxoxo

I love the second photo. If you ever move, you should arrange to spend your summers there, but your winters somewhere where you will get more daylight hours. Then you will have the best of both worlds.

Kath said...

Just breathtaking! x

Brian Miller said...

Breathtaking shots of the sunsets!

Love & light to you!

magnificent photos! Breath-taking indeed. It must be quite a "free" show to be able to appreciate such natural wonders. I can't here in the city; while we have plenty of nature around, there are tall houses and buildings blocking nature's awakenings. The luck! :o(
thanks for sharing, and have a lovely day!

Years ago I lived in Ireland and loved those long summer nights. To be where you are would be to have more to love. These photos are just wonderful.

may that light shine within you soon.
The fifth day of the fifth month here is so...trivial; Cinco de Mayo and we celebrate a battle few even know about (including me)

Rajesh said...

Zuzana, the reds are spectacular! It always amazes me that with the increased light also increases our inner light as well. SO NEEDED! Hoping you continue to feel increased healing and warmth.

The light which shines in the eye
is really the light of the heart.
The light which fills the heart
is the light of God, which is pure
and separate from the light of intellect and sense.
