Thematic Photographic Silhouette Take Two

Thematic Photographic - Silhouette - Take - Two

Off into the still of one Saturday night, just for a special occasion -


Looking into this vast and free limitless expanse of open water, (void of ice!) and hungry sea gulls lurking past....



What should appear from around the corner of this shadowy grove before me.....across the lake I see,



Oh these still waters run deeply through my veins evermore....



So slowly this water-chariot treads softly through these quiet, still waters in the hopes of not being too late for the party.







We all ....walk softly through this Eden-like world of beauty under a pale blue sky and moss-covered rocks underfoot, and rejoice, for there are plenty of tables, and much free parking found here.



In honor of coming to Thematic Photographic so late this week, I offer a night on the water!

Have some of your own to share?  Why not?  Oh you need a link?

There is something so magical about boats at night, and your pictures really capture this feeling.

What do I do now? I was going to complain that I missed the boats in your banner photo and then you sneak one up on me!

Lovely description and gorgeous moonlight silhouettes. I could almost hear the gentle lapping of the water as the boat sailed by.

great issues altogether, you just received brand new reader. What could you recommend in regards to your post that you just made some days in the past? Any positive?

Rek said...

These are beautiful, soft, soothing and serene is what comes to mind.

I love that last one, as the lights are coming on, and the day is going - beautiful!

Fantastic reflections Karen! It must be an awesome feeling to see water again vs. ice on the water... kind of reminds me of that song "Smoke on the water" by Deep Purple. Ya, I'm tired tonight! lol

Have a fantastic weekend, cheers.

KBF - Thanks! :)
Bob - boats do make a picture better!

Karen S. said...

Darlin, that's the song I hear! Great song too!

Lisa, it was so peaceful. Always is! I missed your name that photo this week, I'll check again, but hopefully you'll do it next week. Carmi started things late this week! I think many got busy and passed it by for this week. Oh well!

Max Sartin said...

Like the trees on the water too.

I feel like I was right there with you, Karen, watching this lovely boat slip past on its way to its destination.

I love how you paint a scene with pictures and words.
