For Wordless Wednesday and Nancy Merrill’s Photo a Week-Sun and water
For Wordless Wednesday
Last summer we had an unusual situation, a significant amount of smoke from wildfires in British Columbia came down into the area and there was no wind to blow it off. The silence during the smoky hot spell felt eerie.
The reflections are an indication of the very low winds. In the evenings in summer the water is often fairly choppy instead of the light ripple. In the morning it is usually calmer but not the mirror like stillness. The sunsets are often lovely but at that time the sun just faded out through the thick atmosphere.
For just a moment the sun shot over the hills and through the clouds.
In a blink it was gone.
The picture above is a reflection of the picture below on the glass of some pictures on the wall, which was taken through a picture window! It is interesting to me how the man, who is in both pictures really seems to stand out in the reflection.
The way the sea star has its arms around the rock looks kind of chummy. Not something I usually associate with either sea stars or rocks.
I go to the island every now and again. I spend the time alone and stay for the sunset before returning to “real” life. This day the sunset was no great shakes but the moon was full.
