By A Quiet River

It’s time for a rest. A quiet break from the frantic acrimony that grips our nation. Maybe for a while we can just sit and watch the water flow slowly by. There is a natural world that needs our love. Let’s give some time to caring for it.

 

Morning

Railing

For me, this small muddy creek and a weathered rotting railing  team up to make a mental barrier to the beauty that lays beyond.  

Simple Beauty

I pine for simplicity!! Simple cameras taking pictures of simple subjects often create the most impact.

River, Sea and Sky

This is the Megunticook River in Maine as it empties into Camden Harbor. The harsh Maine light helped the colors a lot. So did the high water level of the river as it splashed high over the rocks.

On A Canal In Amsterdam

I’ve been away from this space for a while on a trip to Europe with friends. We’re still travelling but I thought I’d post this photograph I took on a boat trip around Amsterdam’s famous canals. There is something magical about moving almost silently around a city on water. (Our boat was electric.)

The juxtaposition of the serenity of water with the jostling hustle of a big urban area just a few yards away was unsettling at first. However, after a while the two melded together and centuries of history settled on us like a warm wool blanket.
