Sunset Canoeing

Sunset Canoeing(Click on the image and zoom to see the details)

This shot was taken at the Creve Coeur Lake. Many of my sunset shots come from this lake. Eventhough, I have scores of sunset shots taken, this one holds a special spot because it reminds me of a poem called "Paddle your own Canoe". I wonder how refreshing it would have felt to the guy in the canoe after he finished paddling across this lake! It was so refreshing just to see him go across.

This picture is coming straight from the camera. No picassa touch. Thats one more reason why I love it. I feel it is perfect the way it is! Let me know your thoughts!

Thanks to all of you who took time to comment on yesterdays post.

This is yet another awesome shot. Perfect place, perfect time, pefect light. The sky is amazing, and the boat makes the shot.

This is a PERFECT sunrise photo. He had a fantastic morning for a row, and what a capture you got. One of your best I've seen since coming here.

Beautiful! I could imagine myself in that boat as well! Must have been a wonderful experience!

as usual u have a beautiful shot here, well done. i need shots like this

Kim said...

I agree, it is perfect as is. Sometimes I think that every shot I take has to be touched in photoshop, but then I'll come up on one and realize, I like it just the way it is. This is a great example.
