The recession in those hills and the white boat make a superb combination Dougie

Like a tissue paper collage, clean and simple. Love this.
That streak of light dividing water from land...

That's a good shot, Dougie, the kind of simple image that holds the attention because it contains only the essence. That's the best kind.

Johnny Blue
And they all kept coming back
Blue, Blue, Blue, Johnny Blue,
Nobody plays as beautifully as you

Blue, Blue, Blue, Johnny Blue
Everybody is singing your songs
Blue, Blue, Blue, Johnny Blue
And the whole world is listening...

Great use of nature's blue moods. The white boat just yells: take my picture, take my picture, please!

It's my mum's 83rd Birthday, so lots of elderly ladies in our home today.
