Searching for natural darkness

Fujifilm xpro-2, ISO 250, FL 50mm, 1/250 sec @ f/8

“When I lie back and close my eyes, this farthest lip of beach right next to the end of the ocean feels like being up close to an enormous breathing being, the bass drum surf thump reverberating through the sand. Living out here with no lights, alone, you would indeed become sensitive to seasons, rhythms, weather, sounds- right up next to the sea, right up under the sky, like lying close to a lover’s skin to hear blood and breath and heartbeat.”
Paul Bogard, The End of Night: Searching for Natural Darkness in an Age of Artificial Light
