    Sometimes when I am taking these kind of pictures I feel civilization is in a far off distant planet from where I am. Plus, as I am taking these pictures I know they will not hold mass appeal, but I like them.

    They're all very nice, I like the first one best. I think the last one would look good in black and white as well.

    Sights like this would have attracted my attention, too, so I feel a kind of "link" here between what you see and like to capture and what I see and like to capture.
    While the texture of the water in the first is absolutely stunning, the third still remains my personal favourite, could it be because of the colour it portrays? Green?

    (This makes me think of Canoncan, who always jokes about green being my favourite colour - I miss him. Where is he? Is he only busy? Does anyone know?)

    man, john, i love these....the last one is just awesome...but i gotta tell ya, nothing is more relaxing to me than water...and your first picture makes me wanna just sit down right there on the dock thingy...i could sit and stare at the sun beams going thru the water for hours... actually, as long as i stared at the photo, i obviously can just use your picutres to get away for a bit...
    thanks! i love these kinda of shots...

    Thank you everyone.

    LaFoto, I am only guessing here, but canoncan is probably on vacation.

    I enjoyed them, it's nice to see the framiliar flora. Maybe it's a northern ontario thing because I have a bunch of pics like that to! I like to say that I was just trying out my cir polarizer filter!


    except yours are way better! Hope you don't mind I added this I'll remove it if you like!

    Thanks for posting these for our pleasure JohnE, a nice group of refreshingly peaceful pictures. But to be honest don't think they would work in B/W. Ernie
