Another fantastic capture of this surreal scene. You are truly an artist.

If I may make another allusion - with the bow of the canoe visible in this one, I imagine the ferry crossing the River Styx. I hope that is not too disturbing an interpretation :)

Best wishes, Leo

Great too though Suzi, don't be so modest!!

Gtz, Patricia

Wow! Thanks so much, Leo! I do not find the River Styx allusion disturbing in the least - I enjoy the stories of myth. Norse mythology has always been my favorite (One Eyed Odin, Thor, Loki). This canoe trip was strictly for pleasure :O)

Hi, Patricia, and thanks. I am happily amazed by the fuss over these two images. I like them both, but that doesn't necessarily signify. As you can see, this one has been viewed a fair number of times since mid-July but not a peep until I linked it. Are you having a good weekend? :O)

Oh, I see now! :D

You certainly did right by recycling this photo. This one is great but the minimalism of the fresh version is one of the best photos I've seen on Panoramio today, for my taste.

Suzi in Oregon on November 8, 2009

Thanks, who, very much! Both images were taken within minutes of each other, I uploaded this one in July, then wanted something minimal to dedicate to Patricia, a new special friend in Pano, who is into minimalism and detail, so I uploaded the more minimal one for her, hoping it would suit the criteria :O)

I'm enjoying this photo so much Suzi...one imagines the scene here..A cool early dawn start..not a sound to be heard, except perhaps for the first caws of the rook, or the eerie squawk of hungry gull, the gentle splash of the oar...Not a ripple disturbed the mirror like reflection..blue light, almost dreamlike, surreal all pervading blue light, silhouetting the stark black posts almost menacingly.. Yeah its a moody shot for certain ;>) nice work!

Many thanks, dear Jim - love the narrative - perhaps we can add a sound byte to the image! The mournful haunting sound of a distant foghorn... :O)

It was a lovely, still, quiet, and very early morning, Hervé, and I loved every minute of it. I was up and out on the water before the herons, even! Best wishes from the Oregon Coast (O:

Per la Signorina Suzi in Oregon.

Ciao Suzi,

ancora una bellissima immagine, complimenti YSL,

mi piace la grande facilità che hai,

nel passare da un genere fotografico ad un altro,

da un paesaggio ed una macro,

da un ritratto ad una immagine astratta,

sempre con grande padronanza,

della fotocamera e degli obiettivi,

con ottimi tagli,

e sempre con la scelta della luce giusta,

ogni immagine è una lezione di fotografia,

insomma una grande e bella galleria,

* complimenti*,

............ la aggiungo volentieri, ai miei preferiti.

un saluto cordiale, Fabio Rosati - Velletri - Rm - Italy -
