A moment in the sun

Photo: Lizard, Mount Hay

On an earlier visit to Mount Hay I took this photograph of a lizard basking in the afternoon sun. He was an obliging fellow, holding his position just right for ages. You can’t see it, but the lizard is surveying the fabulous wilderness landscape that keeps drawing me back to Mount Hay.

This time the lizard’s perfect viewing spot was taken by another photographer capturing the frozen pose of more models having their moment in the sun.

Words to walk with:
From Ecclesiastes 1 in the Holy Bible (New International Version)
“Generations come and generations go, but the earth remains for ever.
The sun rises and the sun sets, and hurries back to where it rises.
The wind blows to the south and turns to the north; round and round it goes, ever returning on its course …
The eye never has enough of seeing, nor the ear its fill of hearing.
What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun.”
