Afterglow

Early evening glow on cattails
More reeds.

Early evening glow on cattails
Still more ...

Lovely pictures. But not reeds -- cattails.

I knew it! Well, actually, I just knew they weren't reeds. I had a conversation with Miriam about it trying to remember (it was late...), and all I could come up with were "bullrushes". Not right. Bulls, cats ... you know.

Thanks. :)

And to make up for my pedantry, I'll just say that the wonderful picture of the red-winged blackbird brought David Francey's song immediately to mind... and set off a rush of homesickness for my Ottawa home and the Rideau River in the spring. Sigh...

Cattails -- hell, we used to call them torches as kids... a little gasoline and a lit match and poof! instant torch. Seriously, nice photos.

Awesome photos! Could I get one in super high-res? 1900 X 1200, to be exact... I want to use it as a desktop background. The first one is perhaps the best.

Sure thing, George. Glad you like it so much! :) I probably won't get around to it before leaving on holidays (in, like, 16 hours), so check back here in early August!
