Sunset Memories

On the weekend, some of the extended family were able to gather in Kingston from various directions to honour my brother-in-laws recent passing. It was neither a funeral nor a memorial exactly, just a coming together at this difficult time.

We were gathered in a house right on Lake Ontario, and I noticed the possibility of getting some shots of the setting sun.

I think this one is appropriate to the day. A life ends and a sun sets, but the sun will also rise in the morning, and for those who remain, life goes on with hope.

It was only after I posted this on FB that they told me that Bill's son and DiL had moved these rocks
to create a path. How appropriate.

My remaining brother-in-law, a fellow photographic devotee, shared the scene with me.




Oops ... I almost forgot this one.

I'm so very sorry for your family's loss as well, John. Your photos are truly spectacular and captures the beauty and mood of the memory.

This was a fitting tribute to your late brother in law, John. The first photo was my favorite until I saw the following ones...but then I think it still is my favorite because it does capture what you expressed in the post. That said, I did like the one of your other BIL sitting on the rocks while photographing the sunset.

What a beautiful moment.
My condolences. It's difficult when you lose a peer, isn't it?
We're still confronting cancer here. A new test in Dec., specialist in Jan. It's been a journey!
