Haiku my Heart #48 Towards Hope

With wings stretched out wide
soaring towards gathering light 
 the home shores of Hope

Without hope, there would be no miracles. Your photo is grand. I can see it is not about the fish, although nif I were on that beach, I'd hope to land dinner before nightfall, or gather some driftwood and set a fire there. The flames would touch the sky.
Peace to you Ms. Foxy. XO

one day i would love to stand beside you on the waters edge. even from afar we gather light. but your footsteps, laughter, the contours of your heart. there is so much more to know about you.

Such a deeply intimate scene despite the miles of land and water that surround these two figures. there is something about the act of fishing together or preparing to, the act of casting a line or a net that signifies hope. I am reminded of the wonderful film, A River Runs Through it, seemingly about Fly Fishing but truly about a family and so many loves and losses. You have created a visual poem here, really Sue. The figures are so small, they almost look like Japanese writing on the sand rather than people ~ as if they were trying to convey a message together.
Peace, Love and Light dear friend,

What a great theme for a still very young year.

Beautiful. Seeing the shore in an entirely different way and through the eyes of a bird. I may not like being in high places but I love being the eyes of a bird.

Norwegian Dreamscape Expanded

Meditation Morn
My Dreamscape Meanderings
Heavenly pass~time 

I rose early the first morning at dawn, although I'm not sure if it was dawn really as Norway is after all the land of the midnight sun!  Anyway it was an exceptional time to experience the fjords we were told so I crept out of the cabin, being careful not to disturb my sleeping partner and up onto the open deck.   I was the first to appear, only the staff were out arranging the loungers. What a wonderful feeling almost alone on this massive liner feeling totally in awe of both my traveling home and the deep fjord waters we were slipping silently through.

I climbed up the stairs to the highest deck and stood in absolute amazement at the sheer beauty of this place, I thought I could hear some kind of faint mysterious musical notes, to this day I'm still not sure whether this was my imagination going into overdrive at the whole mystical experience or a distant melody carrying through on the air.....

Shadow Land & Spontaneity

Usually in photography I practice the concept of noticing the moments and what arises and arrives spontaneously as opposed to a staging experience i.e. purposefully choosing a subject to capture. Picking up the camera when something hits my radar of perception is second nature and this in turn mostly leads to the pleasurable treasures of intuitive photography.  Recently due to the exceptional brilliance of the autumn sun through my windows there have been lots of opportunities to capture the clarity of shadows or their subtlety for that matter! Shadow photography is a favourite form of imaging for me.  However, I wanted to make the shots a little more defined for added interest so this lead me to try manufacturing the outcome, or in other words staging!  This doesn't come naturally to me during a photography experience for it touches on the subject of control, taking me out of the comfort zone of going with a meditative flow and into the area of thinking or a cognitive interrupti…
