That is such an awesome shot! That water looks very cold too...burrrrrr!

Hi Mary Ann. I guess she was just doing some sketches! It was amazing to watch.

Hi Laura. Thanks. I could have stood and watched the shapes morphing all day, except it was pretty cold!

that image is pure poetry Annie - glad you are having fun with your camera - am wondering if you've found a way to do the light painting yet - I look forward to seeing the results! I am experiencing the opposite to you - watching in extreme heat is not pleasant either!I am in Alice Springs now where 30 degrees is cool at night!!

Gorgeous image.

Annie said...

Hi Robyn. Thank you. I guess it "paints" like this all the time!

Hi Donna. Yes. I love the thin thread-like lines and the inky black pools.

Hi Rambling Rose. Yes. I decided I didn't need to write anything to go with it. I'm loving my camera! Don't think it will let me do the light painting but I'll have a go and see what I get when the nights are less cruel. You've missed the coldest Winter I can remember. Hoping you're having lots of adventures. Stay cool!!

Hi Seth. Thanks. Pleased you liked it.

So it's 5:00 AM and somehow I'm awake so I get my computer out for my morning blogsurf. Your page was already on my screen as I had been perusing blogs last night and got too sleepy. What a sweet page to land on!

Your writing and images so fascinating, soothing and artful.
I'll be back for more.

This is the second blog this week that has revealed hidden treasures of the lowest of tides.

Beautiful sea reflection. Glad you captured it.

Annie said...

Hi Maggie. Thanks. This stretch of water is actually inland in the middle of Manchester on the shipping canal that was built to join the city with the sea at Liverpool. However, it made for some broad reflections as you can see.
