Stronger than the dark, the light
Tomb, thou shalt not hold Him longer;
Death is strong, but Life is stronger;
Stronger than the dark, the light;
Stronger than the wrong, the right...
~Phillips Brooks, "An Easter Carol"
I was out early on Easter Sunday in April of 2009. . .colder than hell out there around six in the morning. . .
No matter any kind of spiritual beliefs, I wanted this picture to represent some kind of "power beyond us." Something mighty, something of wonder, something frightening, something inspiring, something that makes us want to explore. . .I rarely saturate like this, but this was just the atmosphere I wanted to create for this picture. . .
The picture was taken at Penitentiary Glen, part of the Lake Metroparks system in Kirtland, Ohio
