My River

Posted by Joyce (Montana, United States) on 13 January 2017 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Love this picture. A zoom in of previous post. Not bad huh? I don't know who is standing at the edge of my river, but he can stay because he seems meditative and appreciative. These pictures where taken with my humble little Casio that stopped working lately. I really miss him.

Thank you for your visit and comments. I so enjoy hearing from you and seeing the world through your lens.

You have me going back looking for the little figure in your previous and there he is. This is a remarkable enlargement and makes a fine image in its own right.

I, too, looked for the man in yesterday's shot. This closeup of a portion of the river, with the mountain so prominent in the background, gives perspective to human's place in the world.

I'm sorry about your friend, Casio, but he helped you to serve up a lovely vista here. The human presence is nice for scale, and of course the power and beauty of Mother Nature always begets my awe.

@Rick: He's not even fishing. Just gazing. Actually standing on the frozen little channel of the river we all splash across in the summer. A figure in a picture is often the key. Not always. Thanks for commenting Rick.

You have managed a magnificent image here. The man makes this one just standing there in this vast place.5*****

@Frances: Thank you so much. I don't even remember if I noticed him on the original shot, unzoomed.

Awesome enlargement that adds some interesting scale (as others have mentioned before).

@B. Thomas: I miss Cas., and his quick video capturing and upload. Really a handy little camera that fits in the pocket. Must get another. Thanks for your visit Barbara. I am slowly getting back to picture taking and visiting other pages. Been dealing with arthritus stuff but on the mend. Hi to your Prince, and those really special kitties.

The person gives an idea of the scale of this beautiful moutain and river shot. A very attractive image. Excellent image.

I agree with the previous comments. A great image that shows us the dimension of the human being.
This is an image of a moment for reflection. A good place for it.

I understand the arthritis stuff, and I'm sure the cold up there does not help. Glad you're back. Mike says hi. Reading a cool book you would probably like. A Wolf Called Romeo by Nick Jans.

An impressive composition. And a wonderful corner of the world of yours
