The source of Life!

Vi mennesker tar ofte ting for gitt. Selvsagt vil solen også idag lyse opp vår tilværelse. Selvsagt vil vegetasjonen rund oss nye godt av sin daglige dose med livgivende solskinn. Selvsagt vil bondens avlinger gro! Og selvsagt vil humler, bier og annet kryp gjøre sin jobb og sikre morgendagens grøde.
Eller – ?

Hvor mange av oss ofrer en tanke på hva som ville skje med oss dersom den faktisk ikke kom?  Ikke at den forsvant rent fysisk, men om solstrålene ble filtrert vekk i tunge askeskyer?  Vi har sett eksempler på at det fort kan skje?  Og vi har liten eller ingen kontroll med naturkrefter. Jo fortere vi lærer det, jo fortere kan vi fokusere på hvordan vi best kan greie oss i tøffe tider isteden for å kaste bort tid på f.eks. religiøse motsetninger?
Picture 9535bWe humans often take things for granted! Of course, the sun will light up our existence!
Of course, the vegetation around us will  be exposed to its daily dose of lifegiving sunshine.
Of course, the farmers crop will grow! And of course, bees and bumblebees will do their job making sure that the crops of tomorrow will be there to harvest. Or . . .  ?
How many of us actually offer a thought as to what would happen if it just didn’t?
Not that it would ever physically disappear, but if the sunrays were filtered away by heavy  clouds of volcanic ashes?  We have seen it happen before! And that we have little or no control what-so-ever when it comes to the forces of nature. The quicker we may learn that, the faster we may focus on ways and methods to live through tougher times to come instead of waisting time and efforts on religious disagreements?!

Kopi av Nye bilder 048bIdag gir jeg dere tre ganske forskjellige solnedganger. Forskjellige steder. Forskjellige lys, men – alle på vår felles Jord.

Today I give you 3 quite different sunsets. Different places, different ‘light’, but still on our planet Earth, which we all share together!
Picture 11125bOg ville det ikke vært fantastisk hvis vi alle kunne glemme trivielle motsetninger, som når det kommer til stykket er uten særlig betydning i et globalt perspektiv, og isteden leve våre liv – det eneste vi har – som familier og i beste vennskap?  Ville ikke vår felles jord bli et triveligere sted å leve, og ville vi ikke alle faktisk tjene  godt på det?

And wouldn’t it be fantastic if we could all forget trivial differences that, when it comes right down to it, and in a global perspective, means next to nothing, and instead live our lives -the only one we’ve got – as families and in the best of friendships as good neighbours? Wouldn’t our ‘Planet Earth’ be a much better place to live? And wouldn’t we all benefit imensely if we did?

    Svein, sunsets through the trees and reflected on water, some of my favorites! Extraordinary photos! 💛 Christine (Elizabeth)

      Hi Chris,

      Two of these photos are actually ‘sunups’ 🙂
      The middle (redish) one is a February picture from the ‘Drammensfjord’ (close to where I live) and the reflections are from an ice covered surface. But I liked them!

  2. Striking sunsets. I am quite enamored with the amazing texture in the skylines you also captured. Nicely done ~ BB.

    • Seenorway says:

      Thank you, BB. There are more than 1800 full screen pictures displayed here, so please enjoy!
      May I ask: Are you operating out of the US?

      • Hello Seenorway,
        Thank you so much for such a warm welcome and invite. I will continue to browse and enjoy your stunning photography.

        Yes I am a US resident, live and work in the US. I am in fact in Oregon state, my native home in the great Pacific Northwest.

        I believe you visited Guitarman Pablo Camara’s blog and so not to be confusing let me explain that Pablo is from Zarate Argentina. ( I manage the PR for him and his music)

        Hope that helps answer your question. ~ BB

  3. Wonderful post my friend and the pictures are wonderful, your spiritual eye surely always captures the moment! Blessings!

    • Seenorway says:

      Thank you, Wendell. (This time the pictures were my own 🙂 )
      Pleased that you liked the post. There is ment to be a serious undertone to it – I hope?

    it would be fantastic
    if we could all forget
    trivial differences …

    • Seenorway says:

      Hey Frizztext,
      Yes wouldn’t it really? Take Palestine for instance. They have been going or each others throats for more than 60 years!!!
      And nothing seems to have changed? Kids brought up in a world learning to hate? What kind of a life will they have?
      I another 50 years it may still all be the same? And how many years will it take before the wounds from the Syrian conflict has healed?
      For how many years must the Iranian people be supressed? And the North Koreans? I feel I could go on for ever –
      There is only one way out of the problems: Forget and forgive! Restart! Like we all do with our computers?! (Back to Ground Zero! )

  5. Lovely pictures and thoughts.

    • Seenorway says:

      Thank you. I just felt it neccessary to put them into words, not that anybody will listen to what I have to say.
      But I do believe I’m right! (I have lived a while)

    Beautiful pictures!

  8. Nice images….The first image you title the Source of Life. It could also represent a fiery end to the World! IF ONLY your last para would or could come true

    • Seenorway says:

      Hi David,
      Yes, the first picture is chosen just becaus it might set your thinking in that direction:
      What if . . .
      The last picture is chosen to bring you back from the dark 😀
      Did you notice my question about your macrols?
