Happiness| Riceboy Sleeps – Happiness |

This is a photo taken in Cornwall earlier this summer, late in the evening, just before sunset, as time and light stretch to capture the scenery as if in an ether. The low, long angle of the shot makes the landscape look more alien than it is, as does the mid-length exposure focussed on the water in the foreground. From another alien landscape comes the debut solo album from Sigur Rós front man Jón Þór Birgisson and his boyfriend Alex Somers, released today. Their track Happiness opens the album and also featured on the Dark Was The Night sampler earlier this, it is a beautiful instrumental, a soft, ambient exploration of space and time that compliments this image perfectly.
