Watercolors

I was driving in the State of Vermont during the fall, stopped near a river and for some reason it made me think about Claude Monet... The sun was in front of me, but the colors were so nice, so strong, that I couldn’t' resist in trying the shot. Tricky the situation here, since the light was indeed strong; a few stops down helped for this mix of colors without washing the image with light.

Oh my!....be still my heart! This is a beautiful scene. Ahhh, so you actually STOP to take a picture, eh? Unlike me....I shoot while driving 60 MPH! hehee If I stopped for every shot I see, I'd never be home.

You are quite the photographer, my friend....you worked the light just right here....annnnnd, I love how you describe each photo...do you write poetry?

( pssst....I left another reply for you on my blog )

This is absolutely breath-taking. The colors truly are amazing, it does indeed look like a watercolor painting.

Uma bela sinfonia de matizes a que certamente Monet não ficaria indiferente.

Adrian,

I wrote this poem some time ago.

Your photo is "(...) the silence of existence (...)"
