Sunset in a cup

“Bring me the sunset in a cup,
Reckon the morning’s flagons up,
And say how many dew;
Tell me how far the morning leaps,
Tell me what time the weaver sleeps
  Who spun the breadths of blue!”

Emily Dickinson

From such reservoirs we can ultimately fill our cups! This is Broomhead reservoir in which my daughter Catherine enjoyed an evening wild water swim

  2. Laura, Just the title gives me ideas for photography from a totally different perspective. Love the pix as well as the verse.

  3. Stunning photo, captured exactly as it looked and paired perfectly with the verse. Meanwhile I am cherishing the other beautiful photograph you sent to me of one of my favourite moments x
