How do you almost always get to be first? :-)

What a great shot.

Seriously good work.

And here's something I must say, too. You know that comment you left on my bicycle-in-Dawson-City post..... I'd love to see that, word-for-word, posted on your blog with a pictorial example.

It is perfect advice for anyone with a camera in their hand (or on their brain).

That reflection is perfectly hypnotic. This pic is a wondrous lesson in artistic composition.

April said...

I like it - the best kind of parking! Beautiful and tranquil!

Artist Unplugged said...

That's a wonderful photo, where's the meter?

Lovely! I really like the B&W treatment of this photo,it gives a hint of 'that long ago' memory feeling to add to the charm of this picture. It could have been taken at the family cottage many years ago, or yesterday passing by....

It tells a story and makes us long for lazy Spring days!!!

Black on Campus said...

Cool photo. The water looks so much like the sky that I initially thought this was a photo of a chimney on a rooftop.

Mommy Phebie said...

lovely! mine is up now: http://lovelydanielle.blogspot.com/2009/03/wordless-wednesday-what.html

Happy WW!

Robin said...

Beautiful shot, such a gorgeous reflection. I physically ache for the return of summer and long lazy days spent by the water.

SandyCarlson said...

Parallel?

This is a great shot. Leaves me feeling like I am waiting for my canoe to come in!

Lovena said...

Wow, I love b/w photos!!

Beth F said...

Very nice, I like the depth of field and the composition.

The Quintessential Magpie said...

Very neat shot, Mojo. You really ought to hook up with us for Outdoor Wednesday. Many of your photos are perfect for that.

XO,

Sheila :-)

Debbie @Like a Rose said...

Another great shot! Detail, depth, and it draws you in.

I wonder, will you visit my site?

Oh crap...do you do that "only blogger" thing?

just so you don't miss it (cause there are other sites outside of blogger that are pretty cool. maybe you've heard?)

Waiting for happiness and joy to return.

Fantastic! Love the B&W! The reflection is amazing.

My first time playing WW today.

Need some help - I'm trying to put the " Wordless" button on my post and have it link back to the Wordless Wednesday blog but I can't figure out the HTML. Do you think you could help me?

Hi, I really love the look of your picture it's very relaxing.
Please feel free to stop by.

Eaton Bennett said...

The reflection softens the austerity of the picture. I've not seen a canoe hitching post before. Your pics
close the distance between America and Australia...Nice! :)

Hilary said...

This is an incredible shot. What a reflection and it's so clear. I want to skip a stone and make ripples in it. Congrats on POTD.
