A New Sun

IMG_3229_MA new sun

A new day

A new light

A new beginning

A new thought

A new hope

 

Hope to change

Hope to achieve

Hope to win

Hope to shine

Hope to live

 

Live to learn

Live to love

Live to serve

Live to create

Live to laugh

 

(For photo enthusiasts: For this picture, I used Aperture Priority, F/22 aperture with speed 1/500. Later someone told me I could have spoiled sensor of my camera by directly pointing at sun. Also my eyes were hurting for sometimes after I took similar shots)

That is a nice poem, and as soon I saw it, I felt like it could be a symbolic poem representing our own country, and the sun being Anna Hazare waking us from our slumber, and throwing light so powerful, that there is nothing hidden, and every thing is transparent, and making us realize when things get too bad, the sun can literally burn away the cancer.
BTW it is just my interpretation of your poem.

A, loved the picture..feels very calm and soothing..I liked those rainbow color spots and one little darker blue spot touching water also six bright streaks of sun rays look beautiful.
Poem is nice with perfect mix of few words giving great meaning.

I liked Rama's interpretation. :)

The twinkling effect is great. But yes you not only take the risk of spoiling your eyes but the camera lens as well.

Anjuli said...

lovely poem- great shot- but I'm concerned about your eyes- you don't want to damage your eyes. Please do be careful!!

I've been enjoying taking pictures into the sun but not including the sun recently. And I always like it when you post poems.

By the way, did you see my recent post of New York pictures? (The one before the current one). Since you're one of my non-fashion liking readers, I thought you might like those. ; )

The pic is beautiful , even I have heard that camera lens should not be directly focused on the Sun.

Amritji,

Thanks for the invite to your blog (via Tanvi). That's a very nice picture. I also liked your poem. They both correlate as they both reflect optimism.
