The Color Blue

MontrealRiver_4517

This is a very late evening shot. Thus the slow shutter sped. This creates the effect of smoothing the look of the water surging into shore. The predominant colours here are blue and white. This creates a sense of peace and serenity.  It is a very calming piece to look at. Throw in some rock and shoreline to give added contrast and change of Color. It will open your senses to want to be able to listen to the sounds surrounding you. Use your imagination.

So, till next time happy trails.

Bittersweet Memories 2

Superior

 

Bittersweet Memories

You walked out the door

You never said a word

You never came back

All you left

Was bittersweet memories

You never came back

You never came back

You filled my life

With the sound of your laughter

The smile you gave me

Like a candle in the dark

But all you left

Was bittersweet memories

You never came back

You never came back

The house is empty

My life is empty

The walls are silent

Your voice and laughter

Just a memory

All you left

Is bittersweet memories

I listen for the sound

Of your footsteps

But I know

You will never come back

You will never come back

All you left

Is bittersweet memories

You never came back

You never came back

Just Me And My Girl

MontrealRiver_4624

Sitting on a riverbank

Just me and my girl

The stars are shining

Like diamonds in heaven

The moon is sparkling

On the river’s surface

No wind is blowing

We are sitting, side by side

Holding hands

Stealing a kiss

Now and then

Just me and my girl

We talked about tomorrow

We talked about forever

And more

Rejoicing in our love

Being so young

Just me and my girl

We had not a care

In the world

Basking in the glow

Of our love

With the stars above

Just me and my girl

To be so young

To be so innocent

We talked about tomorrow

We talked about forever

And more

Just me and my girl

Fun With Waves

MontrealRiver_4495

I was strolling the shoreline of Lake Superior, enjoying a breezy summer afternoon. The waves were picking up in size. Thus I thought would be a good time to capture wave action. It was a fun afternoon. Just shooting away as the waves came in. A beautiful blue sky with some cloud cover.

Later it was a matter of going through the photos and selecting the best ones. I liked the above composition. Lake Superior can give you bigger waves, but you get what you get.

So until next time happy trails.

Shoreline Mood

_MG_2204

Dark skies, late evening created the mood that is evident in this particular composition.  A touch of lighting by the setting sun. This is my favourite time of day to get those fine art compositions. Watch the weather, cloud effects, but best of all enjoy a pleasant evening stroll on the shores of Lake Superior.

It Hurts

It Hurts

 

Been working all day

Kids to look after

When the darkness comes

The hurt always returns

I just can’t get

You off my mind

I am so tired of crying

 

So many emotions

Words have failed me

The pain of being cheated on

I gave you so much

Of my life

I never thought

I could be the other women

It sure hurts you know

 

What is it about her?

That I don’t have

You left me bitter

About love

But I got to let it be

Move on with my life

Strong Winds Are Blowing

This was an evening capture taking at Sawpit Bay, Lake Superior. The waves were four feet high. Heavy cloud cover with detail. A rock out cropping standing alone. I was set up in a small cove. I wanted enough detail in the waves to create the sense of motion. I made sure I had a small piece of shoreline on the left. Thus I was able to tie in the rock outcropping.

Well that is it for this week. Until next time happy trails.

Hotel Room Blues

MontrealRiver_4608

An interesting morning shot taken on the Montreal River just off Hwy 17. A combination of mist, color and the darker evergreens makes for interesting contrast.

 

Hotel Room Blues

 

I opened the door

To my hotel room

Beer in hand

Feeling the blues

I am all alone

No one to love

 

I don’t know when

The last time I was kissed

Even hugged, for that matter

I am stuck here

In this hotel room

Lonely and blue

 

Sipping on my beer

Feeling the blues

For love just lost

I hang my head

The tears falling

In that hotel room

 

I have asked myself

I don’t know how many times

As to what went wrong

I am now all alone

Without you at my side

It hurts to say

That you are gone

While exploring the shores of Lake Superior, I came across this location that was all rock. I had dark skies to eliminate the blown highlights. There for I was able to shoot straight through the crevice without concurring light problems. The stunted growth at the top of the photo broke up the predominately brownish color of the rocks. Lichen is always a nice addition to the scene being orange. Another magical location found on the shores of Lake Superior.

Well that is it for now. Happy Trails.

Good Morning

Good Morning

 

Good morning sun

I greet you this day

I feel your warmth

You brighten the day

 

Good morning wind

You are blowing softly today

I feel you caressing my face

A breath of freshness

On this morning

 

Good morning trees

I hear you murmuring

Like a whisper in my ear

You are still standing

Though many are gone

 

Good morning flowers

You brighten the forest

With your vibrant colors

Gently nodding in the wind

 

Good morning stream

The sounds you make

As you journey through the forest

Gurgling and burbling carefree

To an unknown lake

Your water pure and pristine

 

Good morning sun ray

Filtering through the trees

You bring a ray of hope

To this new day

 

I rejoice in what

You all have given me

The feeling of spirituality

That can only be found

In the untamed wilderness

The feeling of peace and quietude
