No Airstrip or Harbor...

... but ample landing sites for kayaks! It looks like a nice place to land, declare it MySpace for a while, and do some real important stuff, such as Absolutely Nothing and Daydreaming.

I've looked at this five or six times and I can't decide which is betterer. :>)

I like the cropped version in which you slice off a good portion of the darker water and reduce it to just a hint of dark as it turns to light.

I also like the entire image just the way it is.

Very well done.

Sorry for the delay in responding, I appreciate all your comments.

I am curious as to how far this tree traveled dee vee, and what the location it was ripped from looks like. I could not find it however. Some one is missing a beautiful tree.

David, thanks for pointing out the details that struck your eyes.

I had a rather lengthy debate with my self, crop the bottom or donít crop the bottom. Tom, I am glad I was not alone with the debate. The deep rich color the water gives up was the convincing argument.

Insegredious, while drifting around my self, to take this picture, I felt the hull of my boat scraping some rocks, I did land! Most times I get rather annoyed when a rock leaves its mark on my boat, this time it was secondary, as it stopped me from drifting away from what I thought was the best angle to capture this scene.
