gorgeous peaceful verse....flow on....guess where i just was....on the infield at bristol while they were running practice laps...haha...thought of you....will post a pic or two later this week...
that's beautiful! whether it was processed to black and white or just appears that way, it is lovely and peaceful.
Great image!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.
The truth is that it's a delicious picture accompanied by two excellent haikus. I wish you a happy Sunday.
A really nice composition Cheryl. Sometimes it pays to crop a little less.
Hi Cheryl, would welcome you back to Bardstown. I just read some of your previous posts and I share A/D with you. Hearing your heart talk and understand. I am an advocate for Mental Health Care and firmly believe you are taking care of yourself. Gotta do what you gotta do, sista. BTW thanks for visiting and your photography is great.QMM
oh what a fabulous post, you have me dreaming ...
That's a beautiful reflection of a proud bird.
Absolutely beautiful....both in words AND photo!!! Peaceful and serene.Thanks for linking up at the Brid D'Pot this weekend. - http://id-rather-b-birdin.blogspot.com
this image is perfect for bw treatment. :)
Absolutely great shot of my favorite bird - and the great haiku to go along with, too...
Lovely image. Perfect prose. Egrets always make me smile.
Wonderfully serene scene. B&W makes it even better!
Great photo! Love the subtle tones! Thanks for stopping by my blog!
Simple, yet amazing. Rubbish by Roan
Beautiful...the lonliness....stunning!!Thanks for visiting my blog!travelmyworldwithme.blogspot.com
Where did that comment get to? Must have picked up JarieLyn's gremlins from her blog. I would never have imagined that that image would work in black and white - but it sure does. Beautiful!
Thanks Pauline. I think the reason it works in B&W is I shot it early in the morning and it was silhouetted. There was very little color distinction except shades of gray.
Thank you Ros. I love great blue herons and am fortunate to live where they're abundant in warmer weather.
Thank you Roan.
Thank you Rosemary. One of the most beautiful sights I enjoy almost daily.
Thank you Betty. It was mostly shades of gray due to very early morning light.
Thanks Jayne. I hear her talk to me. Today, the pathetic fallacy came fairly easily. Sometimes I can't find the words to give voice to my nonhuman friends.
Thank you Katy.
I shot it in early morning light and only had to lighten it up a bit to bring out the detail. It was more silhouetted before post processing.
Thanks Anni. Thanks for having me.
Thank you kindly, Sivinden.
Someday we have got to find a way to get your sweet self over here to visit.
Thanks Theresa. I shot it as the sun was coming up so it was mostly silhouetted. I lightened it up a bit to bring out the details but left the lack of digital color alone. The seaweed on the rocks was green but with my settings, they appeared black.
Thanks Boom & Gary!
Thanks Brian. This one came fairly easily. I've often struggled to give voice to my friends without human language. ;-)
Thank you Leovi. Hope you have a grand week.
Thanks Phil. I couldn't agree more.
Thank you. I hope to find my way back to that entire region some day. It's one of my favorite parts of the country.
Beautiful picture you show.Thank you for visiting my blog.Hanne Bente
Lovely pic. I love reflections. nice poem too. Thanks for visiting my blog.
Beautiful reflection of the bird!
Lovely all around, Cheryl. =)
Lovely words, beautiful reflection.
What an extraordinary photo! And your words are pure magic! Love this!
Very pretty shot! Love the reflection!
Nicely captured! Also, I like the term "slack" tide... I never hear it used here in CA (instead we say low tide). Slack is so much more descriptive!
Excellent combination of picture and words to convey the peaceful relaxation of slack tide.
Thanks Peter. Low tide and slack tide aren't the same thing. Slack is the space between tides, usually at low tide, when the ocean neither ebbs nor flows. The biggest reason it's common in this area is that freighters can't come into port until the tide is at low slack. With drawbridges to contend with, they simply don't have enough room overhead to be pushed under the bridges, even at their highest lift points.
Thank you Hanne.
Thanks so much Sue. Sometimes I can actually make words dance a bit. Not often but it happens.
Thank you, my friend.
Thank you Linda.
Thank you Christopher. I love it at low slack.
The monotone coloring of this shot is very peaceful Love the words. Great combination!
love this. and you.
Okay, first of all. How fun! Secondly, I must now follow your blog because you are from New England and I miss it. Thanks for the inspiration!
Your haiku perfectly captures the essence of slack tide. I love it!
Thanks H. Sometimes I actually find the words to describe what I see and hear in nature. Imagine that. ;-)
