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

  1. Awesome clicks And They Can’t be more better then this โ˜บ๏ธ๐Ÿ˜Š

  2. Omg amazing shots ,I wish I could take pictures like that, great photos ๐Ÿ˜Š

  3. All wonderful Jane but that rainbow over the Golden Gate bridge is just stunning. Have a great week ๐Ÿ’•

  4. Glorious. I love the rainbow shot.

  5. 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.

  6. 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’™

  7. Spectacular pictures…also you couldn’t have chosen better words to describe them ๐Ÿ’Ÿ๐Ÿ’Ÿ

  8. 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.

  9. Twilight stars๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

  10. Simply magnificent, Jane. Wow.

  11. These are really eye-catching ๐Ÿ˜Š

  12. Really amazing shots๐Ÿ‘Œ

  13. Wow..!! Looks beautiful.. Amazing click. ๐Ÿ˜

  14. The world is filled with so much beauty despite the disheartening times we are experiencing. This is a wonderful collection of your photography, Jane. So much loveliness out there. ๐Ÿ™‚

  15. What a beautiful picture!

  16. 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!).

  17. Wow Jane, these are all so gorgeous. And the one with the rainbow just stunning. What a moment!
    Alison

  18. as always a very skillful use of composition, colours and other elements. fantastic!

  19. That rainbow!!!! โค โค

  20. 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 …

  21. Wow !! Great panoramas and wonderfull colors but the black & white pictures are also very beautiful. Have a nice evening and many greetings from Belgium.

  22. Wonderful pictures and some of them are amazing to see. I love the “Tidal Reflection, Kiawah Island” in particular. Its composition and sense of vast open space just immediately sink in…

  23. What a stunning post. Pairing it with the Dylan lyrics is perfect. You have an amazing eye.

  24. 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™‚

  25. Nice song about love! ๐Ÿ™‚ Fine set to go with the words. See you, Jane!

  26. A beautiful collection. It’s so important to see broad horizons at this time.

  27. I add my voice to the chorus of admiration

  28. This view though๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

  29. Stunning photo’s. And so wonderful to be able to see a horizon…

  30. All pictures are just beautiful ๐Ÿ˜

  31. Jane, something touched m deeply about your most beautiful post, your images are just significant and Bob Dylan’s lyrics spoke to my heart. Thank you for sharing your amazing talent.

  32. Your work always exceeds our expectations, Jane! Bravo and bravo!!!

  33. 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.

  34. The great outdoors brought to us masterfully by Jane Lurie!

  35. A wonderful poem….
    And some breathtaking pictures!!
    A perfect combination…๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

  36. Pretty shots, Jane. Are some of them making you homesick?๐Ÿ˜˜

  37. As previous commentatirs has already pointed out, really nice photos ๐Ÿ™‚

  38. Wow, wow, wow! I’m speechless, Jane. One incredible image after another, how do you do it? Such a gift you have! โค
    'Modern Times,' his best release, IMO. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  39. These are stunning, Jane! โค

  40. That final shot of the bridge with rainbow literally made me GASP!!! Gorgeous.

Love to hear what you think...
