This week's Photohunt is...Nautical.
That subject makes me think, which isn't a bad thing at all!
Let's try these...
My very first look at Venice, taken from the train as we approach this luscious city...
A bit of a stretch, maybe...a canal in Venice and a water taxi speeding by...is this really a nautical image?
A boat ride back from Spirit Island on Maligne Lake, Jasper National Park. I love riding in the spray on the back of the cruise boat that takes us across the lake and miles back into the back country...the water's emerald, cobalt and teal colours are created by the glacial silt that washes down the mountainsides from the many glaciers in this area. Maligne Lake is glacial-fed.
I love water.
I love the colours of water and the icy feel of the mist on my face from the wake of the boat.
I love painting water, everchanging and difficult to capture in an watercolour painting.
"Greatness is not where we stand, but in what direction we are moving....we must sail,
sometimes with the wind, sometimes against it, but sail we must, and not drift nor lie at anchor."
~ Oliver Wendell Holmes
