photoblog image The Peace I Feel

Lake Ohrid, Macedonia

Thoughts On The Beach


I feel the wind in my hair,
As I sit on this deserted beach,
Only the gulls footprints in the sand,
Only me and my thoughts in this secluded bay,
On this crisp and mellow Autumn day.
The sun hangs low in the sky,
Throwing sunbeams across the sea,
Like brilliant diamonds reflected on the waves.
In the distance the terraces of houses,
Painted many colours,
Some just holiday homes
Some lived in by sailors
Now long gone, in this once prosperous
Boat-building town,
Now its just a holiday place,
With just a few fishermen,
And it remains unspoilt it's beauty intact,
Reflected in the peace I feel,
When I sit and relax.

I love the colors and the arrangement of the boats! Have you tried converting just the background to B&W and cropping it tight to just include the boats?
kimberly h: I haven't tried this idea but I will! Thanks for the comment!

An pleasant sensation of well-being and peace. That is what this pretty photo transmits!
kimberly h: Thank you Jose for your kind words!

And to think I had no clue you posted this, Kim. You snuck it in after so much time away!

The boats seem so haphazard in how they're just sitting there, which is part of what I love. And the colors, of course...and the man fishing! YES. And the man fishing. smile

Kim,...a mutual friend of ours told me about your blog, and I must say I have truly enjoyed reading it and seeing your photos... This one, of the boats is absolutely awesome. You have such an eye for color and photos that "tell a story"... I thank you for sharing your talents with all of us.

It is so calm looking. The composition makes it look like the boats want to join the other and head out.

Stunning photo

Colourful little boats so beautifully captured. Like how you've included the man fishing from the pier, Kim.
