New Day: Wharf and Marina

Had trouble deciding between these two photos,
so y'all just get both of 'em!

So many elements of these photographs
are appealing to me:
water, sky, clouds,
boats and their masts,
rocks, plants,
lines, shadows, styles, details of the buildings...

And it all conveys a delicious, quiet sense of peace and joy.



Taken 31 December 2010.


  1. (now you know why i often post multiple photos in each post - i'm terrible at picking just one...)


  2. It is difficult to choose...but I would go with the second shot.....!!


  3. Yes, Tex - it is extraordinarily difficult sometimes!!

    Good call, Trevor. I was leaning toward the second one,too, because it has more of the buildings and that nice plant-filled foreground; but I really like the way the first way has that "visual Napoleon" layered effect: water, boats, sky... especially the way the masts reach into the sky and their reflections dive into the water... mmmmmm.

  4. Nice shot of the marina! I like it a lot!

    Have a nice day! :-)

  5. great shots, Ed............love the buildings on the wharf, especially

  6. This is great, Ed. Love the crisp colors, the peaceful water. Very inviting.

  7. Very nice! The horizon lines are straight :) Sometimes that the biggest challenge. I love these types of scenes they always make me dream of getting in a boat and going on an adventure. Thanks for sharing.
