How cool is this concept of sharing your art by the way. After nearly 2 and a half years of posting images and random thoughts here on flickr and on my blog, I still have to sometimes stop and think about how cool that is. With that being said, I hope you enjoy this little piece I worked tonight. I captured what became the base of this piece after slamming on the brakes and pulling a u turn somewhere in the middle of New Hampshire. After I picked up the camera that happened to slide its way right off the front seat during this abrupt stop for color, I let the serenity of the scene pull me in to absorb its beauty. (that didn’t sound too corny did it?)
There continues to be a lot of change going on out there. In fact, the only real constant in life IS change. Great if you are one to embrace it…..more of a challenge to those who resist it. Regardless of which type you are, it can still be a bit maddening to keep up the pace, as John Mayer sings about in this song.
Beautiful tones and reflections!
Beautiful scene. Great reflections and sky.
Wow Mike, this is lovely!
This is beautiful, peaceful and ‘lovely’ – great colors and looks like a storm might be coming! Thanks for the note so much – will write you soon – don’t know if I’ve ever mentioned you have a wonderful way with words – but I guess you know I like stories about photos!
