No Fishing - Posted on 01/11/2008
At least not yesterday, there wasn't. While out driving the back roads, I passed by this private farm pond a few miles from my house. The owners keep it well-stocked with fish, and you can usually find them out there most summer evenings. Yesterday, however, it was a lonely place, with only the sound of the wind blowing through the bare trees and the distant call of a crow to break the silence of a winter day.

Thanks so much for all the wonderful comments on the previous image. My apologies for the extended absence from posting - post-holiday activities and unkind weather conditions have kept me from getting out with the camera. I also hope to get back to my normal routine soon of visiting/commenting on all the wonderful images in your photoblogs. Have a great weekend everyone! -- Kim

    I really like the detail on the near side and the softness on the other side. Very nice.

    This looks painting on a canvas. Lovely colors and this softness is really beautiful.

    Looks so peaceful. I like that you only see the trees as a reflection in the pond. Adds a wonderful dream feel to this image.

    Gorgeous, Kim. This almost looks like it was shot in the spring. It has a soft quality to it. Filter? Gaussian blur? My imagination?
  • martineb - 01/13/2008, 4:52 pm

    Wow, I can only say: well done! Great shot!

    Kim, this has an ethereal quality that is wonderful! I really like the softness combined with the foreground detail.

    Looks like spring time. Lovely shot, like the color of the pond and the reflections. The dock adds a nice touch to the composition. Really like this one, Kim.

    You certainly captures the essence of tranquility here Kim. That dock is pretty inviting to just sit and take in the surroundings.
