Autumn - The End






















 The Doors (Jim Morrison)- The End Lyrics

This is The End, beautiful friend
This is The End, my only friend, The End
Of our elaborate plans, The End
Of everything that stands, The End
No safety or surprise, The End
I'll never look into your eyes again

Can you picture what we'll be?
So limitless and free
Desperately in need of some stranger's hand
In a desperate land
Lost in a Roman wilderness of pain
And all the children are insane
Waiting for the summer rain, yeah

There's danger on the edge of town
Ride the king's highway, baby
Weird scenes inside the gold mine
Ride the highway west, baby

Ride the snake, ride the snake
To the lake, the ancient lake, baby
The snake, he's long, seven miles
Ride the snake, he's old, and his skin is cold

The west is the best
The west is the best
Get here, and we'll do the rest

The blue bus is callin' us
The blue bus is callin' us
Driver, where you taken' us?
..........
THE DOORS - The End

Frumos!
Poze alb-negru - imi amintesc de copilaria mea, poze cu parinti ... da, amintiri frumoase ... :)

ADRIAN said...

I really enjoyed the picture set and Jim Morrison.

Victor Mihiş said...

frumoase, ca de obicei,... şi frumoasă încheierea cu imaginea color... şirul de pomi la orizont e cumva dinspre Braşov spre Rupea?
o săptămână maximă să ai!...

imi place sfirsitul toamnei imaginat in sepia.oricum inspirate fotografii, iar cea cu pescarii - cred ca a 10-a din coada - imi place in mod deosebit.

Kaya said...

Wind, you black and white photographs are great and very inspiring. Some day I should try this type of photography. And a water theme is my favorite theme.

The word "end" is a sad word but also it means the beginning of something new. Every poem on your blog is a revelation for me. Thank you for introducing us to this interesting poet.

that's nice :) Natura e superba..

Cristian Ion said...

chiar sa fie sfarsitul? eu parca as vrea sa mai stea un pic, dar stiu ca nu e posibil ... imi place cum ai aliniat copacii si norii aia nebuni, in a cincea fotografie ... ceata din 11 si 13 ... ultima e speciala, parca sa ne aminteasca de culorile toamnei ... felicitari

Bob Bushell said...

The B&W versions are brilliant, and the End by the Doors, I love it.

Geografilia said...

sfarsit de toamna..sfarsit de culori..

GRIGORE ROTARU said...

Da: toamna se stinge
în alb în negru
în lacrimă prelinsă
pe rază de paing
şi rămâne la mal
o luntre în care nu mai intră nimeni
( ce a fost de dus –
a fost dus)
cimitirele cad în beznă
plopul îşi flutură neliniştea
cu o singură frunză
pe o bancă la marginea lumii
umbra unei îmbrăţişări
zările zac neclintite
ca în vis se întrebă
de ce toate acestea ?

( compuse
la 12 novembrie – 1978;
în timp – imaginile dv.
au dat cu abur albastru
peste aceste vedenii)
Sa fie bine!

clo said...

wonderful and delicate work ...An other one great serie...
thanks for this beautiful walk..
all my compliments..
have a nice week..

Bitch said...

This is not the end but a beginning.
Your black and white photos are so
dramatic, something else..
The End by The Doors and the name
of Jim Morrison brings up another
epoch!
Congratulation, Wind.

joo said...

Your black and white end of autumn is simply awesome! I could stare at these photos for hours.
Have a nice week ahead!

cartim said...

Utima este acolo parca a ne da speranta ca ziua care urmeaza va fi mai buna ...

Rick Forrestal said...

These are breathtaking . . . absolutely beautiful.

Dejemonos sorprender said...

Hallo, really beautiful series.. i love the effect that foggy gives.. is great, so magical..
Saludos..

Phoenix Ryzing said...

This is a really wonderful set of photos you posted. I think it really captures the stark contrast between autumn and winter.

I'm not looking forward to it. The first snowfall that we get is going to kill me.

Richard Klekociuk said...

Lovely, at times very haunting work, Daliana. I particularly enjoyed images 5 & 6.
Here in Tasmania, the weather is opposite to what you are experiencing - it's 21c and getting warmer!
Regards, Richard

Dumitru ( micky65 ) said...

Imi plac imaginile...in special cimitirul ...ha ha!

Faine imagini! Multumesc!
Iti doresc o saptamana minunata!

marty said...

very very beautiful shots ! I love all the raindrops !

Kenneth Larsson said...

This is such a beautiful suite of photos. Thanks for sharing! Have a nice day! :-)

se-cret said...

...dovezi ce nu pot fi puse sub semnul întrebării.

Out on the prairie said...

A nice selection of photos. I always look for another image in drops of water, as in the asparagus shot.

Fram Actual said...

Your photographs cause me to shiver from the dampness and the chill they convey, Wind.

Truly, they do reveal the end of autumn all too well.

Anita said...

Thanx again!!With vivaldi:)

Oooh b&w - wonderful! Defintely delivers the finality of the season. Perfect.

Unai said...

Amazing shot! lovely BW photographys.

Brilliant work, congratulations.

joanny said...

Stunning ---- you are an 'ARTIST'
this group of Black and Whites impresses with a strong trend toward surrealism or realism. The photo's presented although they are in Black and White, is both extremely sharp and clear. To achieve such level of clarity in black and white is extremely hard.

Joanny

Rajesh said...

Beautiful very artistic shots. Love the variety.

ρομπερτ said...

An entry that made me nearly cry. Moving pictures indeed, especially as I came close to close my blog tonight ...

Love the 'fog-and-river' picture most.

Please have a good new week.

Teri said...

As always, every image is wonderful. I admire your work so very much and I love the moodiness of these pieces. Great stuff, Wind!

Windsmoke. said...

These photos are classic black and white images of nature at the end of one season and the beginning of another scripted to the lyrics of the classic Doors song The End, well done again.

Flutterby said...

I enjoyed the color photo at the end of the sequence. The dew on the spider webs looked like nature's jewels waiting for you to bring them to the rest of us to admire. Beautiful.

Fly said...

foarte faina toata seria asta!

Adeline said...

frumos, o atmosfera cum rar intalnesti in fotografii, o toamna trista, cu amintiri din copilarie. Felicitari!Imi plac mult!

Hi, Wind. These photos are gripping. I have to hold my chest looking at these images. I felt like my heartbeat doubled. Your breathtaking photographs are talking to me. Thanks for this awesome experience.

VertAnge said...

Ce trista mi se pare barca aceea parasita!

Brosu Constantin said...

Foarte faină seria!
La mare artă toate fotografiile, au o poveste şi fondul muzical le completează.

Traveling Hawk said...

Minunate versuri dar the end never exists, it is only a new start, ever!(parerea mea :)

Nici nu stiu ce poze sa aleg de data asta, parca cele cu barca aceea ciudata, pierduta pe apa cetoasa, care isi asteapta parca Luntrasul, sa treaca Styxul...

Tommy Andre Nekkoy said...

Wow - These are all masterpices - Well done

Beth Niquette said...

What beauty. The raindrop suspended by three strands of spiderweb filled my eyes. And that is the greatest compliment I can give. These photos are just amazing.

Mahon said...

jeannette said...

You take excellent pics, Wind! In color as well as in black and white! Hope you do do something to sell your pics?

Toyin O. said...

Very nice pictures.

Alberto Oliver said...

The end, only the prelude, to a new start, every time more and more perfect.
Yes, the only friend, the only one who really honours its word and promise, our friend, the end.
And my favorite picture?? the one they all form together.
A lovely week for you Wind friend. =)

Andras said...

Imi plac foarte mult pozele BW, iar ultima este magnifica.

O sa ti se para ca sunt un ciudat, dar pe blogul asta nu am vazut fotografii care sa nu imi placa. As vrea sa stiu ca esti om si ca din cand in cand mai gresesti si tu ... :P

Very ethereal lake pictures and full of mystery... nice, good choice to do it in monochrome. I love the repetition of the fence posts and trees particularly the silhouette shot with the light coming through the clouds. And then there's the song....... :-)
have a great week, regards, J
