Mirror, mirror, on the wall...
Its glowing in the dark. Beautiful shot!
Magnificent photos, almost a rebus...:-)
coucou Prospero...Roxana a raison tu es un magicien...tu joues avec l'ombre et la lumiere...:o)j'aime cet effet visuel ...l'obscurité a devoré une partie de l'image..c'est etrange cet oiseau sans pattes...ça met en évidence les courbes et les lignes...et cette blancheur qui nous interpelle...bises du sud....
It really does look like it's glowing! Beautiful photo of that magnificent bird!
Beautiful photo which gives rise to interesting thoughts.I like what you say about marionettes in your response to my comment on your previous post.
That must mean phosphoresce... :-)
Amazing! The snow white heron almost looks tridimentional against that black background!My best wishes for 2010, Prospero!
I hope the mysterious creature can find what it's looking for in the darkness. It is quite beautiful in the image with its long s-curved neck.
Just beautiful in my eyes.
It's just gorgeous! My favourite so far:)Great weekend to you!

Very strange image. Far from conventional and a gigantic leap from tradition.
Darkness--absence of light. Yet visible darkness--a concept over which to ponder.As always, your lovely pictures and word combination makes me think deeply.
"In what way do we benefit from speaking of things indirectly? How does such a distancing allow us better to discover, and describe, people and objects? Westerners find it natural and normal to meet the world head-on. But what can we gain from approaching it obliquely? In other words, how does detour grant access?"Francois Jullien
Beautiful capture! The bird really stands out!
Yea... the fish down there glow and sparkle, so the guy can just pick even in the dark!.. ~bangchik
Prospero, so nice to see this little goose (?) here. Did you used a big zoom for this? I was chased by goose before. I wouldn't go near them even now. Nonetheless, my new plumbago is white. I wish one day I could snap a photo in the dark like how you did here. White glows nicely in the dark :-D
Hm, looks like a little goose. Certainly is a goose.Thats when we use to much photoshop, a gracefull egret become a goose :).Joking.
I LOVE this photo!
Wow!!Its really glowing .....Puurfect shot !!!!(@^.^@)
Darkness is the absence of light ... perhaps that's why the bird stands out - even seems to glow. What a wonderful way to "see" the world.Beautiful picture, awesome title. Makes me stop to think.
The quote fragment is from Milton's Paradise Lost. A dungeon horrible, on all sides round,As one great furnace flamed; yet from those flamesNo light; but rather darkness visibleServed only to discover sights of woe,Regions of sorrow, doleful shades, where peaceAnd rest can never dwell, hope never comesThat comes to all, but torture without endStill urges, and a fiery deluge, fedWith ever-burning sulphur unconsumed.
perfecta, genial, saludos
What a great picture. The bird does make the darkness stand out!
i agree with Regina, it's glowing in the dark! another magnificent shot!
you came again at two o'clock of my night :-)ah, the garden in which we wouldn't meet - is still to be invented -
Stunning! Not your typical photograph. Nicely done.
My Goodness, worth coming back for to have a look at, as is the previous post where Prospero delves into Prospero's soul.Happy New Year, Prospero, may your magic never fade.
You have such a talent for taking simple things and isolating them and making them appear special. AWESOME JOB!
Graceful bird, dramatic sight!!!
