I have many childhood memories with those boats.. Great pictures!

Joe said...

Ohhh!! I love this one V. Fabulous perspective with the boats carrying the eye into the photograph with each boat diminishing in size. The repetition of subject is terrific and seems so complete in three, one more would be two many, one less to few. And the crispness of the reflection makes feel the cool spring air. Bravo V. An artwork.

Jamais très stables, mais ô combien romantiques...

Great scene.

Paulita said...

That is a photo so fabulous that Monet might have painted the scene.

Virginia said...

This is one of about 10 photographs I took of the boats that day. This particular shot was one I had not even looked at. Glad I hadn't deleted it!

Oh la la—what a gorgeous composition, V!

I like the color of the insides of the boats, even though I probably see it differently from the others.

A really magical capture

You had me thinking of Monet too, V. It could be an oil painting. Beautiful.

Very pretty, Virginia. I looked at some canoe, kayak and boat photos yesterday when I was thinking about what photos to show in the coming days. But, I didn't choose one. Maybe I should go back and look again.
