Magic hour

April 5, 2013

Most of yesterday we remained inside while the snowstorm transformed the landscape to white. Summer is over. By 4pm the snow stopped and the cloud began to lift. I headed up the snow covered bluff to work on the rock sculpture.

It was very beautiful with everything covered in fresh snow, but it made it more difficult to collect rocks and increased the danger of slipping and falling off the  edge while working. As the sun went down through the swirling clouds around Mt Aspiring everything became golden.

A clear cold night  brought a cloudless dawn today. We are off to work.
