Stowaway

By BertC  
Captured last January (around the limits of Mellieha) soon after a heavy downpour when the weather had just started to clear up.

The title to this frame stems from a little philosophical reflection.
What are our lives being subconsciously webbed into ??? ... An array of pressures, targets, uncertainties, conflicts, intollerance etc ... So we photographers tend to pack our camera and gear and 'stowaway' into our own world of peace and beauty.

I thank you all for your previous 'clicks' and encouraging comments, which are highly appreciated.

Wish you all a splendid week.

Shot very late in the afternoon.

Thank you for viewing and as always larger is better.

Exposure :- 1/5s - @F13 + ND Grad.

Hi Bert
Another superb capture from you with wonderful light. For me this particular image has an almost metaphysical feel, the first principles of things - concepts such as being, space, time and indentity. Great work.
