Drifting ships

1-Drifting ships

With the slightest
breath of wind —
leafy sails billow
on masts of trees —
drifting ships
in a blue-green sea.

    I really like your photography. This one I love.
    How do get such reverberant colors? Is it the time of day, where you live or do you manipulate?

    • Thank you kindly! Yes, I did manipulate it a little with Picasa. Nature endlessly inspires my lens and pen / a muse for all seasons. I hope you have a wonderful weekend, my friend!
      Cheers,

        Tyler, definitely a master photographer & manipulator.
        I also like your “The ancient eavesdropper.” What does that stand for?
        Blessing,

    I love your vision, Tyler.

    What reflection!

    • Thank you kindly, my friend! This is Knowles Creek, a beautiful, cold water stream that flows into the Siuslaw River near Mapleton, Oregon. There is a smolt trap upstream of the confluence where we count salmon fry and smolts (and other aquatic wildlife) to track the health of the population. A truly inspiring place to work πŸ™‚ I hope you’re having a wonderful weekend, my friend!
      Cheers,
      Tyler πŸ™‚
