You have just posted three absolutely fabulous shots, kamaly. The simplicity of this one is quite compelling. Very nice indeed!

Really piling it on, aren't you? Real pretty shot.

thanks very much for that not1word and guy! I have 500 shots from the Tetons, but I just had to ignore them and get to the beach for sunset, lol. But it was so cool it was worth it. (did you notice the little visitor in the photo to the right of this one?)

It's the simplicity of this shot that I like a lot. I'm piling this piering shot into my favourites.

Really beautiful!

Beautiful simple shot, kamaly very nicely done - and so different from dawn in the mountains - I can even forgive you for the title >:b

Simple and very beautiful! Ciao, Roberto

Great photo and I like the title too. I'm starting to think the Masset, Massachusetts, sunsets are a hoax! LOL, you folks seem to get more than one a day. But I love them, keep em coming.

Cal, the secret of the Two M's is that there is no mid-day. Sunrise lasts about 5 1/2 hours, and sunset takes the rest of the day. They have plenty of time to pick the prettiest moments. : )

Ooooh kamaly, kamaly, kamaly! This is like a dream! Y* for you and for this photo :).

kamalyn on March 18, 2009

wow - thanks very much for all of those nice comments whoelius, not1word, steve111, roberto, Cal, Don, Dianne, Ippa, Graham, and Norrel ! These are on either side of a boat ramp - I really don't know what purpose they serve! But it felt rather otherworldly being out there with the calm water and super clear sunset - and then the owl swooped by!

and not1word and cal - what you're missing is that there aren't a whole lot of sunrises on either side of the continent. In my case, it's all I can do to get sunsets, lol. and then I telegraph Guy to tell him there's a good sunset on the way, so to rush out to catch the rays I left when it gets there. ;)

Your calm shot of "arrows" is fascinating.

Greetings from Germany, schwUPPs

Hi kamaly, my guess is the pilings were put there for a landing barge or ferry. Their spacing appears to be designed for a specific vessel, and the second set further out is in deeper water to tie to while waiting, (safe from a dropping tide).

kamalyn on March 18, 2009

Thanks schwUPPS ! Isn't it interesting how just taking a different look at some pretty utilitarian pilings can made them look so different? I guess usually when I'm there, the tide is lower, or people have their vehicles backed up to haul their boats onto trailers. I'd never noticed the reflections like were there that evening.

And Thanks Guy - I beleive you're right about that. There's a barge anchored off shore that was brought in last summer. I think the pilings were there before that, but probably for the same type of thing - maybe even the barge from when they built the jetty at the mouth of the river. This is in the river itself, and water's probably not too deep at all.

And my photo's "artistically" deceptive: the two rows of pilings are actually parallel. I just was standing closest to the ones on the right to try to get the full reflection in the water and not show the asphalt boat ramp paving!

someGuyinmasset on March 18, 2009

Well it worked, your artistic deception decepted me.

kamalyn on March 19, 2009

wow - I'm pleased with myself! I didn't think you were deceptable!

whoelius on March 19, 2009

Yeah I was deceptinated too.
