Orphan Clouds by MaciejKarcz Orphan Clouds by MaciejKarcz

Wild monk, come to make a parting with me.
We sit a while on the sand beside the welling source.
You'll go a long way on that empty alms bowl,
deep among mountains, treading fallen flowers.
Masterless Ch'an, our own understanding?
When you've got it, there's no place for it but a poem.
This parting's nothing fated:
orphan clouds just never settle down.

- Wu Pen, 9th century CE.

The experience I had here really cannot be captured in a picture-poem. With time to kill, we arrived two hours before sunset. Next to us a drum circle, with 20+ people, most playing and some dancing. The atmosphere was simple but rich. We sat on sun-lit rocks. The drummers improvised continuously during the three hours I was there, long complex rhythms. Poetry on all fronts. It's something I will remember for a long time.

Great! I love the water. Usually I like the long exposure water better because it is smoother, but with your photo's I love the little ripples and the
way the lights plays off them. Amazing!

Me too, I would've preferred to do a long exposure here but didn't have my tripod.

I visited this place several times after this evening, it usually takes me a few visits to really understand a place. Unfortunately the skies were cloudless the whole week after this.
