Watery Strangeness

Malmohus Castle

Malmohus Castle

We all love water.  Watch children scream with delight when you take them to the beach or a pool.  Our bodies are 70% water.  Without water life would not be possible.  When one spends over 2 weeks on the Baltic Sea, or its ports which are criss crossed by inlets, ponds and canals, the impact of water on one’s vision is undeniable.

Blogger and photographer Malin H. made me aware of this quote:  It is life, I think, to watch the water. A man can learn so many things.”  (Nicholas Sparks, The Notebook)

This series includes photographs from, Sweden, Denmark, Finland and on the High Seas.

    • Thank you Malin. This has been somewhat of a developmental series for me. I have done only a few similar images in the past and finding myself around so much water on this trip, I decided to do more and work out the processing details.

  6. I absolutely looooove your water pics!!! Reminds me of a Monet painting, just gorgeous!!

    • The blue one with Monet in the title probably beats the strongest resemblance. It is all sort of impressionist.

    • Immanuell, I believe you are familiar with many places, mood and emotions. Your artwork demonstrates that.

      • I live in sweden.

        • Lucky you, lots of tall beautiful blond women to see. I am back in Houston with heat factors of 43C (39C plus 4C for the humidity.) It feels like a furnace outside. It gets dark just after 8PM, because we are at only 29.7 North. When it gets dark it does not cool off.

          I saw a lot of nice views in my short visit.
