There is always something about a lone sailboat on the water. It draws us in, causes us to think.

What a wonderfully calm picture! The red boat adds to the lovely scenery.

Oh really pretty scene!

Thanks for explaining the b&w shot - I've gotta work on that.

Hi EG, Love that 'water' picture. That little red boat with the red sail is just so cute. Thanks for sharing.
Hugs,

I wish i could be in that boat!

Do you think the gull is up to something? Like stealing some freshly caught fish? ;-)

I love the contrast of the red with all the blues, lovely picture

RuneE said...

Indeed - and a nice red boat too. Simple and with a red point. Applause from me.

It just pops out of its surroundings, what a beautiful scene.

Makes me think ... that I want to get on a boat again!

Beautiful scenery EG!
Calming for the mind.

Love how that little bird looks like he has an eye on the red boat; he wants one, too.

Such an interesting photo, in an understated way! You have to spend a moment being drwan into it before you see its beauty!

Isolated beauty! Grand shot!

PERBS said...

Nice catch! I bet it is so peaceful for them alone like that with their thoughts.

George said...

I really like the way that red boat looks in the water. This is a wonderful Watery Wednesday post.

Cool shot EG. I like to look at sailboats, but am a bit leary of riding in them. I saw one tip over once in a strong wind.
That rose came from Wal-Mart 2 years ago. They sell them every year in the early Spring.It has a tiny 1" blooms, and does great outside in my flower bed. I have 4 of them.

That red boat made the perfect focal point!

Annie said...

I love the way the sailboat pops at the center of the picture and the seagull looks like he is considering the possibility of moving in.

Incredible scene! A real sense of amazing tranquility!

Shots with such calm waters always make me want to be there.

Small City Scenes said...

A super shot. Love the red on the boat. And has the gull come to the edge of the water to contemplate life as he knows it? we will never know. LOL MB

Arija said...

Cute little red sail x motor boat, so little and frail on the big water.

Tammie Lee said...

That lone 'red' boat sure stands out. I imagine that would be a lovely thing to do, wander about on the surface of water...

amanda said...

I can just imagine being out there so peaceful!

Craver Vii said...

I'm amazed at how strong the red is, that it almost reduces everything else to black & white.

Marju said...

Beautiful photos!

Tulip said...

Becky and Gary said...
