Me & my thoughts & the silence

Me & my thoughts & the silence

By |2013-12-27T11:09:20+00:00Dec 27th, 2013|
I was looking through my folder of Ready to Share photos and realized that it had been a while since I posted a black and white photo and this one seemed to call out to me. I took it last month while visiting Oregon and was with +Nicole S. Young and +Jeffrey Yen at the time. We had scouted this area earlier in the day and returned to it just before the skies opened up with rain.

I had enough time to take about four long exposures with this last one being my favorite composition. In fact, I think you can even see the rain in the darker parts of the water’s reflection. I’m just thankful that, despite the rain, the winds were very mild and didn’t aid in moving the water or the dock.

    +Brian Matiash I wouldn't have said it if I did not mean it.. Its not really kind of me to say in my opinion..Cause its only the truth..:) but your welcome. And really tis very beautiful..breath taking to say the least, shows a lot of emotion and melancholy in my eyes..but Its subjective I suppose..
