Lost World Photo by Mikko LagerstedtThe other day I came across this luminous photo from Finnish photographer Mikko Lagerstedt.  Titled Lost World, it shows a sailing ship partially sunk in shallow water beneath a densely star-filled sky.  All of the elements of the image– the color, the composition, the reflection on the water and the glow of the sky– give this photo a mysterious and intriguing vibe.  Just a great photo.

Mikko Lagerstedt is a self-taught photographer who specializes in what he terms atmospheric photography with an emphasis on simplistic landscapes and  night scenes.  They have a brilliance in them that plays well off the sparseness of the landscape and the immensity of his skies.  For more images and info, go to his site by clicking here.

I thought I would find a piece of music to go along with it for this week’s Sunday music and one of the first things I stumbled across had the feel that I was looking for.  It’s The Shining by Badly Drawn Boy from back in 2000.  It’s a song that pops up on my playlist every so often and always pulls me in with its opening moments that feature a mix of cello and french horn.

Enjoy.  Hope your Sunday goes swimmingly.  Not exactly sure what that means but I’m sticking with it.
