Beautiful light and calmness. 100 degrees! Being near the water was probably a good idea.

A very attractive composition raised by the tones of the water and the sky.

You can feel the silence in the muted colors and the stationary boats. That's something for a photograph to achieve !

What a fantastic phitigraph Barbara. The temperature also probably made for this exquisite color in the environment so i guess we can't complain too much - but 100 is darned hot no doubt. Although the water has little waves, this still looks like little toy boats placed upon a glass table...just a wonderful image that really pleases in my opinion. Very "cool" :-)

Such lovely light and stillness in that most unusual Maine heat. Don't you just love all those beautiful boats?

10 Sep 2010 2:42am

@Judy aka L@dybug: Yes, I do! And I think that the Rockport Harbor is so much more "real" than Camden, which is filled with luxury yachts!

Céline from New York City, United States

Beautiful !

This is gorgeous! I love the light....And I agree with your response to Judy, working vessels make much more interesting subjects with great personality.
