Marysville Falls

MaryRiverBWWR

Bob and I drove to Marysville, BC to photograph a small waterfalls.  It is located on Mark Creek. It is just a short walk on a boardwalk path. Marysville Falls is a 30 meter waterfalls.

We did not spend much time here. The rain came, so I quickly captured the above scene.

 

 

When I am walking with Trees

When I_m walking with Trees

Painting by Pierre AJ Sabourin En Plein Air Landscape Artists

Thank you Pierre for use of your painting. It inspired this poem

 

When I’m walking with Trees

A forgotten path beckons

Through an ancient forest

Covered in lichen and moss

When I’m walking with trees

My body is relaxing

My energy is flowing

My soul becomes of the forest

As I listen, to the forest sounds

The air is calm

The morning sunlight filtering

On the forest floor dancing

When I’m walking with trees

When I’m walking with trees
My body is relaxing

My energy is flowing

The path twists and turns

Over time worn rock

I have this feeling

Being watched from above

A light appears ahead

As closer I walk

The light it intensifies

Then before my eyes, fading

I hear a song

As I walk along

It is the trees whispering

A hush voice singing

A gentle caress upon my cheek

It is the morning breeze

Cool and fresh, a lover’s touch

When I’m walking with trees

When I’m walking with trees

My body is relaxing

My energy is flowing

The trees appear to nod

As I pass by

The air is clear

The sounds I hear

The brush of a branch

Gently upon my shoulder

It has been awhile

For now I smile

Mica Bay, Lake Superior

MicaBay5

Mica Bay, Lake Superior. This was one of my enjoyable evenings spent exploring the shoreline of Mica Bay, Lake Superior.

The evening was becoming late as I observed this scene. The lake was rolling gently. The exposure would be long. That would create a dreamy affect on the water. More so in the foreground. I cast around for a suitable collection of rocks at the water’s edge. The composition soon came together in my mind. I set my tripod as low as I could set it. Therefore, allowing me to create an illusion of less water. To tighten the composition I shot vertically. Too much water would spoil the effect of the composition.

I stretched out on the beach. Being eye level showed me my composition as I wanted it. Thus I was able to create my scene.

 

 

Brown Eyes Crying

 

 

Brown Eyes Crying

Brown eyes crying

In the dark

Drifting forever

On a sea of tears

A long times gone

Just drifting forever

Through endless nights

On a sea of tears

Brown eyes crying

On a sea of tears

Drifting forever

As is the past

Like the mist

Has crept over her

Forlorn and blue

Our love never

Had a chance

It was like a sad song

With never any wrong

A love in a mist

In a sea of tears

We could never exist

In hearts gone cold

Brown eyes crying

In the dark

Drifting forever

On a sea of tears

A long times gone

Just drifting forever

Through endless nights

On a sea of tears

Brown eyes crying

On a sea of tears

Drifting forever

Brown eyes crying

On a sea of tears

Drifting forever

Through The Mountains

It is summer here in Nicaragua now. But like everywhere else in the world, the weather patterns have been messed up. Lately there has been plenty of rain, bringing cooler temperatures. It has been a week now since I finally made it out for some photographic fun. It was a beautiful warm sunny day. A little late in the morning for the best lighting. The haze was a little annoying to deal with.

It was on a Monday past that I was joined by a good Nica friend. I had secured his services the day before. We topped off his motorcycle with gas. Then away we went cruising through the mountains. It had been many years since I traveled by motorcycle.

I was attracted by a rock knob on the mountain top as shown in the photo. The lush greens of the landscape is long gone. Replaced by parched earth. There is tremendous depth here in the photo. From foreground to background you are given a sense of depth vertically and horizontally. You will see buildings in the left corner of photo. They give you the sense scale to the whole composition. The rock knob is only a portion of my composition, but is there. I allowed the sky to be half of the photo. Thus a sense of overall vastness that are the mountains. In this type of work I want you to envision the feeling of a 3D feel.

I will close now, till next week. So until next week happy trails

Oh So Lonesome

Cascada-Blanca

Oh So Lonesome

Have you ever gotten

That feeling, of feeling lonely

Of feeling,oh so lonesome

In a cold,cold home

Her love is gone

Her heart turned cold

As cold as a stone

I think I’m in the Arctic

I feel so benumbed

Her angry words frosty

Like the cold North wind

You left me behind

I know I am to blame

I asked for your forgiveness

But you had no mercy

I know we have been

Through troubled waters

She told me, she had no trust

I was like the dust

Blowing in the wind

She had made up her mind

To leave me behind

Have you ever gotten

That feeling, of feeling lonely

Of feeling,oh so lonesome

In a cold,cold home

Oh so lonesome

In a cold,cold home

Oh so lonesome

In a cold,cold home
