Beyond the Horizon


“Beyond the horizon, behind the sun

At the end of the rainbow life has only begun

In the long hours of twilight ‘neath the stardust above

Beyond the horizon it is easy to love.”

~Bob Dylan

“Beyond the horizon, in the springtime or fall

Love waits forever for one and for all

Beyond the horizon across the divide

‘Round about midnight, we’ll be on the same side”

“Beyond the horizon, at the end of the game

Every step that you take, I’m walking the same

Beyond the horizon the night winds blow

The theme of a melody from many moons ago

The bells of St. Mary, how sweetly they chime

Beyond the horizon I found you just in time”

~Bob Dylan

  8. Beautiful, Jane, especially the Twilight Stars. From Kiawah, I assume. Regarding the Sunset, San Juans, is that the San Juan Mountains in SW Colorado and the water being the headwaters of the Rio Grande? If not, still a beautiful sunset. Nice shot of the GGB.

  9. Wow!!! You hit 2 birds with one stone. Brilliant pictures (absolutely mind boggling) accompanied with a beautiful poem. Beyond the horizon, everything is achievable. Beyond the horizon, there’s no pain or sorrow. Beyond the horizon, is the life of my dreams! I’ve interpreted the horizon as my comfort zone, success always lies outside the boundaries of our comfort zone! Thanks for sharing this!๐Ÿ’™

  11. Beautiful skies. The space you devote to the cloud in the first … even when competing with Bryce is well-deserved! I am a fan of low horizons and especially when the sky interest merits the attention.

  19. What an uplifting series of images and text, Jane – it’s a real antidote for these times. You’re knocking us out with these beauties! The first image just about took my breath away, then the second is a startlingly beautiful contrast to the first. The tidal reflections at Kiawah, and the rippled sand surface with all that angled light on it – so refreshing. The Big Sur fog has a lovely mystery about it, all those layers, separate but melded, and so subtle yet so full of color. There’s a lot of depth there. And what a fitting end, the Golden Gate and the rainbow, everything lined up and perfect and speaking to us of brighter days ahead. (But first, we have a few months of truly tedious times, I fear!).

  23. These photos are spectacular. Thinking about watching the horizon – I have been told to do that when seasick on boats (I am a bad sailor). Indeed, these days when there is much to feel queasy about, watching the horizon is a good strategy to adopt even when on firm ground. Especially when there might be rainbows out there …

  27. You can’t go wrong with Bob Dylan, Jane. As Harrie says, fine images – I particularly like Fog, Big Sur. This post reminds me of travels long ago, and of the magic of lights twinkling on the far horizon in the dusk. Thank you for the memory! ๐Ÿ™‚

  36. I get the impression that many people don’t make the connection between horizon and horizontal.
    Not familiar with the lyrics, I checked and found that “Beyond the Horizon” appeared on the 2006 album Modern Times.
