The Harbour

[after the shock - to some - of the subject of the last post, I was asked if I would post something a little more pleasant. Alright then ...]

I went down to The Harbour (yes, that's the spelling of the name of this place even though it's in Florida) to catch a sunset. We shall soon be saying a temporary goodbye to places like this for a long, but brief, trip up north to celebrate Christmas with family.

Given the late hour I'll share just a few shots with you - will post the sunset in a few days.

Picture yourself in a boat on a river,
With tangerine trees and marmalade skies.
Somebody calls you, you answer quite slowly ...
(Lucy In the Sky ... The Beatles)

les couleurs sont superbes !
but j'aime aussi les petites bêtes! j'ai appris à les aimer et les respecter since I see and make macros!

it snows here since half an hour and all is already white !

Beautiful! The calmness of the water and the reflection is very soothing. The colors you captured in the last shot really set the mood!

Lisa Buben said...

Love the beautiful shots and the reflections you got in them.

This is THE life . . . and you captured it, Rick :-)))

Beautiful place and so quiet :)

Yikes, I'm sorry I scrolled down to take a look at the insect in the previous post :( But your new pictures more than make up for that. Gorgeous colours and reflections in the water.

Very pretty scenes. Much better than an insect which makes me shudder. :)

That is indeed a beautiful harbour! The last photo is wonderful with the colours and reflections. Safe travels back north.

It's very pleasant there...sun and warmth! You captured a beautiful night atmosphere! In Romania it is cold and snowing.
Many greetings!

These are amazing Rick, stunning.

These are absolutely beautiful, Rick. You have a safe trip, and a wonderful time with your family!

Awesome pictures Rick. Nothing beat Florida living. Blessings.

Hi Rick,
Great pictures at the time of the "blue hour", particularly the last one.
Greetings J&C

Rick you've done it again, totally WOWED me with your talents. The lighting is phenomenal, the clarity is stunning and the pictures themselves make me want to pack a suitcase and come house sit for you in Florida while you're here for Christmas! lol

It's good to hear from you again, your kind words and beautiful shots are missed. I've been so busy as you've seen, but there's still time to think of others and how they're doing and I have thought of you once or twice. Then again you have sunshine, sand, and beaches... who has the time to blog with all that going on? ;-)

Wishing you a safe trip home, take care and have an astounding day!

Really remarkable shots, Rick; so very rich in color.

Lea said...

Wow! All photos are beautiful! I want to be in that place with my family, too. A great idea of a getaway :)

Hallo Rick,
Ik had je geschreven dat ik je blog niet kon openen als ik op je fotootje klikte, maar ik kom er net achter als ik op jouw reactie bij mij klik kan ik wel in je blog komen, vandaar mijn reactie nu op jouw schitterende foto's. En dat enge beestje hier voor vindt ik prachtig mooi scherp, maar wel een griezel hoor.
Nog bedankt voor je reactie!
Groetjes, Joke

In comparison to those snowdrifts around our house, the places in your photos look like from another reality! :)

I like especially the first photo, it's pleasantly "soft".

Here I Am/Carrie said...

Oh I want to see sunsets like that. They just kept getting better then I saw the last one and let out big Ohhhhh. So Beautiful.

Cheri said...

These photos are stunning, Rick!

Barefoot from Heaven said...

Sooo easy picturing myself on a boat in this environment...sigh.
Kind a nasty to trick me into some place like this while we have buckets of rain....urg.

And in a way the pictures look surreal. They are drop dead gorgeous.
Happy times to you my friend.
Hugs Dagmar
