May 28: Zernez evening 3
Finally, dusk approached and it was time to wrap up the long day.
Maybe I went up a little higher than the plateau, but this might have been on the way back down toward the churches too.
An exquisite clover-shaped but gentian-colored flower.
It was accompanied by other flowers from around the color wheel.
The twilight at 9PM was a similar violet hue as that flower.
Stone strata up to the churches.
The empurpled view upvalley, with very subtle gradations of hues in the clouds.
In 2005 I sketched that same view in my nature journal, as photographed here, and I did again on this evening. It was sprinkling a little bit then, but sparsely enough to write for a few minutes without much worry.
Spooky lights at the edge of dusk. This is a recreation of one of my favorite old shots. I like this one just as well, though, for its evocative tenebrosity.
A dusky macro of the churchyard wall.
My trusty Utö tote bag sitting trustingly on the interchurch bench, knowing I wouldn't dare to forget it. It was my only bag for all these walks and hikes.
The Hauptkirche tower around isobrightness.
Heading down the southern way from the churches.
A peek into the grounds of the Chastè Wildenberg.
Getting dusky at the central square.
The Alpina looking cheery inside.
The central directional beacon once again dominating the illumination stakes.
One more look up to the church and mountains.
AAAAAAAAAAAA WHAT IS THAT oh it's just the shadow of the multisink faucet.
