In the Moment – III
In the moment just after sunset, the sun has dipped completely below the horizon. We are left to look at the landscape of North Texas in the twilight. The long shadows of the afternoon are no longer visible. Instead, the entire landscape is cast in the singular penumbral shadow of the earth. The afterglow of the day illuminates the surface of Lake Lewisville, but our view into the shadows becomes more monochromatic than in the moments before. The reflection on the lake’s surface is that of twilight itself. As the darker umbral shadows of night process across the landscape, we cease to discern the reflections and the once mirrored surface of the lake is consumed by the void of night.
